The Storyteller by Pen-umbra
The Storyteller
My entry for ArtPrize 2014! A paper-cut that I've been working on all year and measures over 10 feet long. See if you can find Orion, Cassiopea, Canis Major, Gemini, Taurus, Aries or Scorpius! Bonus points if you know where Camelopardalis is!

Made entirely out of black paper, The Storyteller is an accurate galactic coordinates map, with stars and constellations precisely placed according to their location in the sky. It encourages the viewer to consider the original inspiration for our stories; ideas of who we are and how we came to be all started with the sky.

Constellations no longer hang over us as gods or signs of good and evil, but rather as stories of failures and victories. Satellites and space stations whiz overhead, no longer mysterious, but somehow still magical.

The Storyteller is filled with details to lean in and search for, and plot lines to be uncovered.

If you live in the Great Lakes region of the US, you've probably heard about ArtPrize, a pretty spectacular international art completion held in Grand Rapids, Michigan every fall. If you're planning on visiting this year, be sure to stop by the DeVos Place to say hi! I'm excited to be participating as an artist this year with a brand-new, MASSIVE paper-cut of the night sky, called The Storyteller. Here's a link: www.artprize.org/becky-pobst/2…

I'll be there most evenings and weekends, so if you'd like to make sure I'm there when you stop by, send me a message! I'll be posting photos of the piece here at the completion of the event.

Nevermore by Pen-umbra
Nevermore
My submission for the Witches of East End contest! I've always loved Edgar Allen Poe's "The Raven." It's such a great depiction of grief and is certainly is a spooky take on our own mortality.

The original paper piece measures 6 inches by 14 inches.
