“He judged the instant and let go; he flung himself loose into the stars.”-Annie Dillard
Make art about release, about releasing something painful, or something beautiful.

Make art inspired by an interesting New Year’s tradition.
In Denmark they save all of their unused dishes and plates until the 31st of December when they affectionately shatter them against the doors of all their friends and family.
In Ecuador they celebrate the New Year by burning paper filled scarecrows at midnight. They also burn photographs from the last year. All in the name of good fortune.
In Romania they throw their spare coins into the river to get good luck.
In Scotland the first person to cross the threshold of a home in the new year should carry a gift for good luck, perhaps a coin, bread, salt, coal, evergreen, and/or a drink (usually whiskey).
