Progress on our Fallmanac

We’re hard at work on multiple almanacs. There’s about four Almanac sized works in our Month of Sundays project, compiling the collaborative art we’ve made while sitting next to each other and overlooking a single view every Sunday.

There’s an entire Almanac we are making of flower tiles. We call it the Floramanac.

We are also looking to make an entire piece out of birch bark. Stay tuned for that as well.

In the meantime, we are working on a piece that reflects on our experience of this autumn. We aimed for it to imitate the verbal capacities of Almanac #3.

As with this one, we wanted our Fallmanac to be seen as a poster from across the room, with mainly lettering being visible, but also to be viewable from a closer vantage as an intricate interweaving of words, images, and collage—neither a poem nor a painting.

Here’s our latest version of the Fallmanac with views of letters like leaves, falling into and out of color.
