If I had to describe myself, it would be in a word that has many meanings with a complexity which falls off the tongue.
A word made up of many elements, is deceptive in appearance, and creates an illusion from the imagination.
My word would be Phantasmagoric. ~Summer Ross

A- Aspiring Artistry

INSPIRATION
In my search for words that begin with A to describe the video below, I came across two strange words I wish to share. The only thing I found to actually describe the video, however, is aspiring inspiration.

Aioli- garlic-flavored mayonnaise.
Alcotote- silly elf. 

I love the fact that the work is made out of words!



How long do you think it took to create this piece?
My guess would be 5 months.

Holy cow that is crazy! Ok, my guess is that it took 8 months to create, unless they have kids that cut the strips of paper for them.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Wow! That's amazing. I loved learning about Alcotote too. Never heard of it.

Wow that really is amazing. I can't believe the things people are able to create. I was just looking and screw art. Where the guy does kinda the same thing but it's made entirely out of screws! It was incredible.

Happy A to Z'ing!

That was AMAZING! Even the sound of the camera refocussing adds to how stunning the piece looks. Thanks for posting this - I just have to work out how to share it with the Minnow.
