A Three of Rods Kind of Day
The 1975 world map is embedded in our table. I have no designs on Argentina.
Coming back from B.A.T.S. with no more decks was a big thrill, but it also meant I have a lot of work to do. I've been researching print prices, figuring out the best way to sell the cards through the site once the order gets here, and increasing my internet presence a little bit.
For example, The Ellis Deck now has a Facebook Page of its own. As much as I have begun to feel that Facebook is a never-ending dump of brain garbage, it is the never-ending dump of brain garbage people are paying attention to fairly consistently. It's kind of the default go-to for the common bored internet user.
The Three of Rods is our work gaining attention. This can be an active or passive role. Perhaps people take notice of our work independently of any advertising or posting. This work just shines bright enough.
Problem being, we live in an age of a LOT going on. Driving down a highway full of billboards, Scrolling down the feed of your Facebook, or checking out a local paper for upcoming shows, there are a tons of things trying to stand out as the activity, service, or purchase worthy of YOU! In order to win that attention (yeah, I'm afraid it's a contest) the Three of Rods means we have to be sure there is someone around when that tree falls.
With either passive or active role being taken, it is the three behaving as the foundation (allbeit a wobbly three-legged stool) that holds our work higher for public notice. Whatever we have done, the right people are starting to see it. So as I set my intention for work earlier this was the card I pulled out to stare at for inspiration.
