Artomatic 2009 ended a few weeks ago. I did my teardown last weekend. I enjoyed Artomatic immensely. I loved seeing all of the great, varied art. I loved meeting new friends.
I found that people visiting Artomatic loved to interact. Several installations invited user feedback (e.g., draw your own robot, write a haiku, comment on your own rat/mouse incident). I would love to think of a way to add interaction to my setup next year. However, one person seemed to have their own way to interact. I found a poem, printed and signed and taped to my wall. It seems that this person, going by the name Brash, had responded to various pieces throughout Artomatic with poetry. I was delighted!
Here is my piece that Brash responded to, followed by the poem:
Being and artist's model
Was sort of neat,
But I wish he hadn't
Fixated on my dirty feet.
