Title: Novel Display Photos
Post by: Owen Reich on September 03, 2013, 01:04 PM
I'll be giving a presentation on novel display and aesthetics in October.  If anyone has photos of interesting non-contemporary Japanese display,  I would love to use them.  Credit will be given.  Walter Pall was kind enough to share some already.  Here is one I took a few days ago on Longboat Key in Florida.

Thanks

There seem to always be something outside the box @ the Carolina Bonsai Expo in Asheville each year.  One of the best examples of what I believe you're after was at the 2010 CBE (http://bonsaistudygroup.com/bonsai-shows-competitions-and-displays/carolina-bonsai-expo-2010-pictures/) (in my 2nd or 3rd reply to that thread).  I believe the 2011 show had another display from the same group that was a little different as well.

Very cool.  ;D

The statue reminds me of a mermaid or some kind of sea lady. Maybe it's the shade of greenish blue.

Thinking of that old Eagles song- The Disco Strangler.... Now there is a thought.

Nick Lenz blurred this line a lot - some  bonsai are the display, some displays are the bonsai, and some are inseparable single pieces. Maybe it is off the line you want to take, but the are a bunch of pictures still on The Art of Bonsai (http://"http://www.artofbonsai.org/galleries/lenz.php").

Sure, Nick is one of my favorite artists; he first studied the Japanese ways then broke new ground.  I guess what I'm really looking for are photos of displays that haven't gotten a lot of public exposure.

Wow! I'm loving that!
I never dreamt that the presentation of bonsai could be so inventive.
Rethinking every thing now.

Thanks!

Not sure if you have given this talk as yet since it is still early in October, but here is one I found on the blog you told me about, Bonsaitonight.com (http://Bonsaitonight.com)

Here's a thread from IBC, not really to my taste, but it is novel.  If you scroll down to the photos later in the post, there are some better trees than the first set.

Saw this on Nichola Crevelli blog today (http://kitorabonsai.wordpress.com/2013/10/07/rock-n-bonsai-steve-lee-memorial-contest/). Thought of your project, Owen, when I saw the minature trap set in lieu of tables.

I've been a drummer since 5th grade, and this is the first time I've ever seen it incorporated into bonsai.  Very interesting...
