The Kite Project

My friend Aradhana studies in Savannah, Georgia. As a student of art, she was come up with a Kite Project. Aradhana and her friend Shea played around with designs and were given complete creative freedom. "Most students in our class wanted to work with basic shapes and had very non objective designs," says Aradhana. " So we decided to paint on it and make it more abstract. We started work on it and were going to make a giant peacock feather. But we decided to take things a step further. If you look at the picture closely, you'll see that the picture is just one feather."
So is this abstract art? " Yes it is," she says "Abstract art is art that represents real objects and the kite is an abstraction of a peacock which is a real object."
What cool pics! Art School must be a tremendously fun place to be in!

"I often sit and wish that I Could be a kite up in the sky,And ride upon the wind and go Whichever way I chanced to blow."
