theme: blob(s)

From orderly arrays to disorderly blobs... I'm talkin' 'bout the third meaning of "blob" in my dictionary: "an object, especially a large one, having no distinct shape or definition." It doesn't have to be large: just an amorphous blob of nothin' much, a little window into the chaos that haunts us all the time, whether we know it's there or not. You can make the blob yourself, or you can cut a blob out of whatever. If you say it's a blob, it's a blob. And there's no limit on how many blobs you can put in your collage; nor is there a requirement for something other than a blob in what you create. Hail Eris!

  1. Excellent choice of theme. Always keen on blobs - especially the very silly film of the 50's with Steve McQueen!
