Captivity or a bird cage at the artprize contest

I interviewed Artist Singh today

Question 1. Why do you exactly call this piece Captivity?

Answer:  It is a state of being confined, enslaved, imprisoned or being held. In this project I am trying to project that how we become captive towards certain ideas in life.  It not only relates to captive animals, but also the fact that we are held captive by our own fears.

Question 2. Why did you decide to make a "Bird Cage"?? why not something else??
  Answer:                   I think its symbolic enough, dont you think ?

Question 3. Are there gonna be birds in the cage ?
Answer:  I dont know... no.

Question 4. How many subjects are going to be installed for all 19 days of Art Prize?
Answer:   19 subjects.... each day has its own subject matter with a different installation. In other words what you saw today will NOT be there the next day but there will be a picture collage of the previous days that people can see.

...and it Starts.

All of Friday Artist SinGh and his buddy worked hard to build the base of the Cage. When we said it was going to be BIG. We didn't know it was going to be this big. Its heavy its tall and its Going to truly Captivate the audience. Anyone who comes to Grand Rapids wont miss it standing just about 16ft tall and 17ft wide (and that's not even the main peace of art). It will be the talk of the town for each 19 days.
                                                                       The outline
                                                                    The first half
                                                                 Ran out of wood
                                                                     The Base is done

The Next Step

Today Artist SinGh has started working on the cage. He also went about rewriting the schematics of the cage, and it is going to even bigger then expected 17 by 20. Pictures of the progress will be showing up through out the weekend.

Welcome to Artist SinGh's Captivity 
Artist Singh’s “Captivity” is an installation art piece that explores Captivity. He brings an exciting new experience that will change every day of Art Prize. The focal point of this project will be a Bird Cage 12 foot in diameter and 14 feet tall. This is where the action will take place, every day will be different and on any given day you may experience the live art of Artist Singh who will perform his popular “Stunt Art”. Ask yourselves what holds you captive?
