Below are pictures of  Emily Joyce's contribution to Detours Tahoe City--a site specific art exhibition in Tahoe City.  For this project, Emily had me print 200 silver on black kites that she later assembled with simple straws string and paper clips. A  corresponding container was set up on the beach, to "invite the viewer to step out of her passive role as audience member and become a participant in the creation of the artwork.  Joyce upends the notion of an artwork’s static site by asking the public to choose the site of this artwork. When the public decides where they would like to fly their kite, the work is complete.  Like a solar eclipse, the black and silver Sun Spot Kites reveal and conceal the sun on a summer day."  More details about the exhibition can be found here.
