This is one of the coolest living artworks I have seen. I could watch this for hours. See more information about this living urban artwork below.
ABOUT THE CORAL CITY CAMERA
The Coral City Camera is an underwater camera streaming live from an urban reef in Miami, Florida. It is located along the shoreline at the east end of PortMiami in about 10’ (3m) of water. It was deployed by Coral Morphologic as a hybrid art-science research project produced with Bridge Initiative and Bas Fisher Invitational and initially funded through grants awarded by a Knight Arts Challenge grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and an Art Works grant from the National Endowment for the Arts.
The Coral City Camera provides a fish-eye view into the urban marine ecosystem that has developed around the human-made shorelines of Miami.

Artist’s statement: “My art is inspired by my heritage and love of the sea. “Luffing” is a time to change course and let the wind fill the sails.”
I am excited to share Art Saint Louis "This Moment Artist Series" interview with Kathy Corey.
About the artist: Originally from Key West, a descendant of seafarers, adventure seekers, and rapscallions lured by the ocean, my art is inspired by my heritage and love of the sea. I spend as much time as possible near the water. I learned long ago there are times to change course and let the wind fill the sails. My work is inspired by nature's glory, the vastness and power of the ocean, and all things therein. The ever-changing sky with its grandeur of colors, clouds, and space take my breath away. My whole life I have had a passion for art. I recall as a young child my mother putting butcher paper on the walls of my room because my sister and I drew everywhere.

The Indigenous people of Australia have been storytellers for over 60,000 years. One important way they pass on their stories is through their artwork. Using a pattern of dots and symbols their stories unfold. The Aborigines are very connected to the earth and the spiritual world, that connection is known as “Dreamtime.” The creation of the world, all the creatures and humans are created in Dreamtime. It is a religion and a philosophy that is an integral part of their artwork.
Let’s make our own Aboriginal-inspired artwork!

Peacock Patterns by Cathy Loos
This drawing was accomplished by scratching off ink from a board (Claybord by Ampersand) that was coated with a layer of white clay under black ink. I used a strong, sharp needle to make the scratches. An artist can get a very precise, and highly detailed images with this method. Artists use a variety of tools for scratching through the ink: tips made by speedball, small wire brushes, sandpaper, steel wool, and ink erasers.
I usually leave my drawings black and white because I like the high contrast. Some artists like to add transparent color. After completion, I spray the board with an acrylic sealant.
You can also put black ink over foil paper. Once the ink dries, you can scratch the surface and expose the shiny metal below.
If you are interested in learning more, the International Society of Scratchboard Artists (ISSA), is dedicated to promoting scratchboard as fine art, supports artists, and educates the public about this art form.
This artwork is titled "Look". It is a 12x9" acrylic painting on canvas board I created about a week ago. The layers of textures and colors represent happy times in the midst of uncertainty. I like the yellow shadow because it doesn't make sense. Just like so much during the 2020 Pandemic doesn't make sense. I have created more meaningful work in the last four months than I have in any other period of my life while hustling for enough employment to keep a roof over my head. It doesn't make sense. Most artists do best when they have a deadline like an art opening. But April 2020 had very few deadlines for me. Most of my gigs were cancelled - when theatre performances are cancelled the director no longer needs me to paint large scale scenery. When stay at home orders are put in place, schools no longer need me to be a guest visiting artist. April and May's nature pulled me outside for long dazed walks that inspired my floral paintings. When June turned into July more uncertainty filled my news feed and social media. That's when strange yellow silhouettes appeared in my art. My palette knife layered textures and colors that evoked the discomfort in my head. As in Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome, was it the “divine attendant spirit” that came over me? www.youtube.com/watch?v=86x-u-tz0MA&feature=share Or was it just simply choosing my art to be my priority. There are a lot of unknowns right now. But one thing I do know, I am an art for well-being instructor. And I make art to feed my well-being. So what did The Pandemic do for your creative life? And why? Have you read any articles to explain creative excess? I’d love to see any research you may have found. But in the meantime, please enjoy the creative journeys of my artist friends on this website. And I do hope you get to experience a “divine attendant spirit.”

" I have been doodling with ink and watercolor on paper all my life. It's my way of stirring up my imagination to see what I find hidden in my head. I call the exercise dream pictures, fantasy sketches, and even brain-sharpening exercises. " ~ Maurice Sendak , American illustrator and writer of children's books
I was inspired by a fellow artist the other day after visiting her website. She posts sketches from her sketchbook. I loved the idea so much I am giving it a try.
Webster's Third International Dictionary defines 'doodle' as 'an aimless more or less automatic scribble, outline, design or improvised sketch traced while one is mentally occupied with something else.'
Doodling is private and personal - distinctively ours. It is impulsive and joyful. It is a way to work out our feelings and tackle problems. Doodling can take you from an uncomfortable to a more comfortable mind space similar to journal and free writing. I recall sitting at one of those boring weekly meetings and glanced over at a colleague who I thought was taking notes instead he was doodling. Doodling is a sure-fire way to entertain yourself as well as get out your frustrations.
It is freeing and good for the heart, soul and brain. So let's make some idle, aimless, and careless art.
Send your doodles to email@example.com if you like to share. Or post to your Facebook page with #bextraordinaire to share on our @bextraordinaire Facebook page.
