Thursday

Do you ever wonder what people are thinking about when you pass them on the street?
I made a bunch of thought bubbles out of paper and we hung them around Brooklyn. We waited for people to walk by the bubbles and when they did, I took a picture. 
I'm sure people think about love, 
food, 
and ladies in bikinis ;)
What would you put in your bubble?

You are such an inspiration to make each day positive! I told about you during a book review I gave yesterday to a women's group. I was reviewing Glenn Beck's book The Christmas Sweater which is all about having a second chance to make the choice to be grateful for everything in your life. You were a perfect example of that!

The Green Cat said...

I love this but I have a question: Did you hang up blank bubbles and then add the images to the photos or were the images already on the bubbles you hung up? Either way it's a great project. Thanks for sharing it!

colormekatie said...

Thanks green cat! I tried using real images at first but it was difficult for many reasons so I ended up just hanging up the bubbles and later adding the images in them.

MD said...

these are fantastic! one of my friends passed by the cupcake a couple days ago and said it was like you were reading his mind.

do you do other street stuff? (i just stumbled upon your blog so i've yet to explore it more). i recently started a blog documenting my love for street art and i'd love to interview you. if you're interested, leave me a comment! i'm at illicitexhibitions.blogspot.com. thanks, katie!

janine said...

My thought bubble would include cats. Yes, I am a crazy cat-lady, why do you ask?

Zana Fauzi said...

Hi Katie, I am your new fan! I'd have donuts in my thought bubble as for now. It might change to pizza the day after, or some cute shoes when we're out in the malls.

nakamura_michiyo said...

Relyn said...

I'm pretty sure I've told you before, but I do love this project! Congrats on your show!

Anna said...

Katie, I have so many interactive ideas and it's lovely to see that you actually pursue them. :-) This impacted me more then most of the art projects I've seen as of late - because its alive. :-) Your art is also original and SOOO refreshing. I look for art all the time....if I found yours on the street, I would have photographed it. It would be interesting to see someone being photographed as they photograph. :-) Anyway - thought bubble is brilliance. I often wonder about people on the train...in fact, I video them sometimes without them noticing b/c I love strangers. My thought bubble: riding a bike with a basket down 10th st in the east village. :-) I think sound is also something that can be visualized - your artwork makes me think of music. Best to you!

Dear Katie,
yesterday I descovered you blog. I read everything (a couple of things even twice, haha)
Today I heard from my teacher arts that I have to make an artwork about humor beings, what they think, what invluinces what they think. You know, something like that. It doesn't matter what I want to make, I just have to keep that idea in mind.
So when I heard that, I directly had to think of your work (like your balloons)
You inspire me so much. It's realy nice what you do. It makes me smile.
I also saw the butterflies and the ladybugs your placed everywhere in your street, I like that so much! How nice would it be to cycle to school and descover butterflies and ladybugs everywhere! It would deffinatly make my day!
Katie, I just want to tell you that what you do is great. Go on with what you are doing!
All the best,
Helene (15, Holland)
