67: Little Hangers

July 1, 2011

Last week, when I was wiring a face onto the truck, I had some leftover wire that I playing with. At one point, I made a tiny little hanger out of it, and it was so cute that I decided to do it again… and again…

So here’s the outcome:

I made a lot of them. It was pretty fun. And look how cute they are.

I made a template with the idea that I could just whip them out, but it was a little harder than I expected.

This part went smoothly, but they came off the jig a little wobbly and misshapen. After about 3 minutes with some pliers and patience, they looked great.

I originally made about a dozen of them, and then went out to hang them up in spots around town.

It’s smaller than it looks here. Maybe people will see them, maybe they will take them. I don’t know. It’s just a thing I did.

This one is exhibiting its natural urban camouflage.

First a close-up, then try to find it on this big, red wall:

It was fun to walk around and look for places to hang them.

It’s hard to see in that one.

I like that there is no reason for these to exist. I have no statement. I don’t even know why I did it.

Keep an eye out, folks. They’re everywhere.

But, I ran out. Time to go home and make more. This is fun.

Cue the obligatory “Mommie Dearest” joke.

    I love these, it’s amazing when we can start a piece with no direction and end up someplace fun.

    I wish I could hear what the people who find them have to say about potential origins. Art installment? A forgetful faerie left it behind? So fun.

    I don’t know how I came across your blog, but I am so glad I did– I love your random art instilations, your random sense of humor- everything! Toooooo funny! I wish I lived in your town so I could go hanger hunting, run for Mario coins and come across a beat up pickup with a distinguished mustache 🙂 Keep up the great work!
