A Concept of Art Unrealysed, Yet Another Realized

[Instructions sent to real artists concerning a story involving a fictitious authoress]


  • Let it be a collage
  • May it be a collage on a gray template
  • Please align in grids preferably vertically (than horizontally) illustrations (digital or otherwise, and not photographs, so as to give it a ‘comic book’ feel) of, say:
  • Tufts of human hair or hairdos of various kind in one row,
  • In another phases of the moon, so on
  • But please do leave the top and the bottom rows empty (color gray intact), so as to let bits of adjacent grids bleed into the empty grids (making sure they bleed in just halfway or less allowing those rows to remain mostly empty)
  • Feel free to use disparate articles in a row following a row of analogous articles
  • Always do pick part of an article for the illustrations instead of the whole, i.e.:
  • Human ear and not human face, bird’s tail and not the bird, leaves and not tree, mouth of a faucet dripping rust and not the entire faucet, so on
  • Let one row be dedicated to words from the story in grids, in reverse:
  • (Loud)(Remain)(To)(Right)(The)(Have)(You)
  • The words can in fact be placed across, emanating with (You) from the lower left corner above the empty grid, crossing straight or skipping grids up and down alternately culminating with (Loud) at the left top corner, barely just below that empty grid
  • Do please try not to define grids with borders
  • Let the borders be implicit than explicit
  • Also be sure to pick what’s ‘not beautiful’ (for instance:
  • A portion of polluted pond, rough diamond, fractured bone, so on) with every choice of what’s ‘beautiful’
  • You may pick up cues from the images of the story for illustrations but if so do so, intermittently, only half the time
  • Please, again, align them vertically, the top and the bottom rows (with or without grids) shall be empty to half empty (in color gray) and keep it a collage of illustrations, not photographs, although in retrospect few photographs could be thrown in, but just a few
  • As for the number and size of grids and rows, it is up to you, you may choose what is feasible and satisfactory
  • For hues, please take inspiration preferably from the Velvet-purple Coronet
  • And do abundantly pick red saffron/crimson (instead of blood red)


  • PS: If this is proving to be taxing, you may as well go with, say:
  • A piece of psychedelic puzzle art
  • Precisely, a multi-colored illustration of a woman, with some puzzle grids missing, certainly keeping the grids involving head, eyes, ears, mouth, and left hand all intact
