Description:

Guillow's Kit 2011 For many a maker the early formation of our creative drives were involved in one or more of the myraid forms of model building. "Guillow's Kit" is a hands on reconnection with this inception of manifesting the creative urge. The Playa art entitled 'Guillow's Kit' will spend the early part of the week completing the assembly and skinning of a 1:1 scale Mitsubishi Zero model that is patterened after the original Guillow's balsa model kits. The first stage will be assebling the wooden frame. The second stage will be covering the frame with reproductions of WWII era Japanese newspapers arranged to mimic the ensignia and detail of the original aircraft, with a little artistic liscence of course. You are invited to assist the artist at any point in the construction and completion of this 'Rite of Passage' themed artwork. As with many of the original kits, the artist's intention is to complete this artwork with fire after the man burns.
