art4ONE4all - Thistle
This first project in the art4ONE4all series is inspired by Thistle, a young transient hitchhiking from Chicago to Mexico who I met playing music on the streets of Provo, Utah. Thistle made some friends along the way that joined her on her hitchhiking journey. She had no money and no other belongings than the musical instruments she carried. I was very touched by her experiences and the wisdom that she gained during her extensive travels. As a result, I decided to make a site-specific art project inspired by Thistle’s story. This video shows fragments of an interview with Thistle and her friends, accompanied by their musical performance, and documentation of making an art piece inspired by her story. This project is a permanent piece made in California at an unspecified location.
