    Found Art sept 26: KEY

    key.jpgWhat comes to your mind when you think about a key? Sometimes you need to know where they are, and sometimes you know where they are but don't know what they're for. Last week my daughter was looking into her daddy's wallet when she found a lonely key. What is it for, she asked... he said (as a joke) "it's the key to happiness, I always carry it around in case I need to use it someday".  The real answer is that he had forgotten what it's for.

    What would you do if you really had an actual key, you know the metal kind, copper or zinc or whatever.. and know you could use it in case you needed to find happiness? where could you use it? would you use it to win the lottery? or in your body  should you needed to be healthy again? I don't know what I would do with it but I think I would be too scared to use it, you know what your mother always says about being careful of what you wish for because it could come true.

    Maybe I wouldn't keep it for myself but then, who to give it to? and why? and what for? is anyone more worthy of it?  This is the question I release to the world today. I will leave this card tomorrow in the passports office where I have to go get my new one.. It'll have the post it note that says "read me".

    I don't know if I'll be able to take a picture of it, but I'll definitely try!

    I love this work. It is charming. I like the way you use your own handwriting/printing as part of the piece. I hate the way my handwriting/printing looks in my work so I tend to either print out what I want to say on a label maker or stamp the letters to make the words. I have to try my own lettering in my next found art tuesday work. I figure I have nothing to loose!

    Hey! I didn’t know that you were around so I could thank you for the Found Art piece that I FOUND!!! It is amazing!! And yes, I did understand what it says, that is why I put it in my purse; I had to seize the opportunity! I thought that if it happens to be the key of happiness it would be so stupid not to keep it (just in case...) does it works? All I can say is that indeed I felt happy at the time and gave me a great topic that night with my friends!
    I have been reading about this project and I hope that more artists join you everywhere. Maybe if they start to leave more artworks here in Monterrey I would be lucky enough to start my own collection!
    Good luck!
