This is the result of a writing prompt given to us by our niece Lydia. The original prompt was “A person washed ashore what they believed was a deserted island. When they were sleeping they dreamt they saw writing in the sand. Then they woke up to find . . . " We took a slightly more existential approach to the prompt because that's what we do at Water Street Art House. :) And in case you're wondering the Druid (ancient Celtic) spiral at the end represents the interconnectivity of all things. :)

Riddle Me This – Quarantine Edition

JUGS, the resident puppet troupe at Water Street Art House, presents this toy theater production. This light-hearted look at the quarantine is a reminder to stay positive during this difficult time. We are a family of artists who live and work on Water Street. We design and sew and weld and perform and take pictures and play music and create puppets and customize t-shirts and build props and paint and paper mâché and dance. To put it simply - we make art. Why do we make art? Because we must.

The Interview

The Interview is an exploration in mask work by Veda Rouze, a resident artist at Water Street Art House performed during quarantine in October 2020. We're calling him Eric. Eric! Poor Eric. He floats through life. Not really ‘getting it’ but also doing no-one any harm. He’s often looking for work - maybe not lasting anywhere too long. In fact I think the longest job he had was working in a botanic garden spreading mulch. He was very good at that.
