Glitter Trail at the 2010 Rainbow Gathering..

The awesome picture of the northern lights tipis (obviously) inspires thoughts of the Rainbow Gathering.. since it will be in the northeast/east this summer (rumors of various eastern states have been floating, most recently I've heard Tennessee!!), it will be convenient for a lot of you! and others should make it convenient. I felt a little twinkle of The Glitter Tribe presence there.. lets make it happen!

Here are some moments from last year's gathering in New Mexico:

The Rainbow Gathering (for me) is a wonderful experiential example of the new earth paradigm we are transitioning into.. Lets make the future part of the now, while incorporating great ideas from the past. It is held in a different national forest each summer, the climax of the gathering is always July 4th, although many people are there for weeks or months before that. The Gathering is open to anyone and everyone, the motto being: Welcome Home. welcomehome.org is the (un)official website of the Gathering. The Gathering feels a lot like a city of tribes and families. There are many camps and kitchens and the entire operation functions through service, loving, giving, and trade (without money).

Welcome Home.

Northern Lights TIPI of LOVE!!!

Thank you GLITTER GODDESS Jaime Currier for this amazing gift!

Collaborating with this awesome group of talented and conscious designers was truly an amazing and inspiring experience! (my contributions are the necklaces, with the exception of one, which was made by the talented girls at Eko-Lab)

artist cao fei: avatars as experiential art

I have been thinking a lot lately about reality creation, and the various expressers (artists, writers, scientists, creators of all kinds) who work with that big idea. Cao Fei's conclusion to her starting question about avatar interaction is that the created reality (in this case the virtual reality of 2nd life) ultimately presents the same problems as our reality does. I am interested in finding realities that ultimately free us from our perceived limitations, thus allowing our reality to expand into places we currently consider 'impossible.'

Please comment and share any links or examples of reality creators you admire.. more from me coming soon!

Please also check out the site for the PBS program Art:21 there is so much great stuff on there, including videos of entire episodes. You can also stream episodes from older seasons on Netflix.

Sparkle On.

and also From the Priestess of Glitter...

(via andy warhol)

Many of the Factory regulars hung out at the 3rd Street apartment, having “Glitter Festivals”. Stanley Amos, who was sub-leasing the place from Tom O’Horgan, kept a drawer full of glitter and half the people there would drop acid and the other half “would be paranoid on amphetamine, staring at the half that was tripping on LSD,” according to Warhol.

Live your life for beauty.


GT On the Road- Chicago & Madison

Thanks to Luci Daum for these awesome GT pics from with mid-west. You may recognize Chicago's Millenium park, where the security gaurds were not into the glitter like we are. The last photo is from Luci's birthplace of Madison Wisconsin. As always keep spreading the love!
