Good Bunday to you. Tyler and Sydney, in addition to their many other prodigious talents, are artists. They use placement of themselves and ordinary objects to create living compositions. Working in isolation as they do their works exist outside of the mainstream art and may not, in fact, even be recognized as art. However they insist that close inspection and an open mind will reveal a fair view into the art which they call "Bun Shui"; the Art of Rabbit Placement.
Left to right: Sydney and Tyler Spot
Tyler: Bun Shui is a constantly changing and moving art form. It is our response to the Qi of the moment. A rabbit always improves the Qi of a room.
Sydney: It could be thought of as a performance art. Unfortunately some our best works have gone un-recorded, indeed unseen.
T: Bun Shui a green art, using only such non-toxic items that are at paw.
Rabbits, Sticks and Bowls
T: This composition plays with numbers as only a rabbit can. It shows two bowls, two rabbits, and two sticks.
S: I'm supposed to covering the third stick, but I let a little peek out just to be edgy. I like the way the photo shows my two back feet to good advantage.
T: I like the hay cube in my red bowl
Spots, Towels and the Red Bowl
S: This one is meant to be sort of disorienting, it should make you question your sense of reality.
T: Compositionally our spots, or "Bunnigraphic Marks" add to the general atmosphere of the piece.
Rabbit with Towels and Bowl
T: This is one of my solo pieces. It is a simple arrangement using a rabbit shape, me, Tyler, as a diagonal element and plays with the two reds of the towel and Red Bowl, and the two patterns of the towel and me, Tyler.
S: Yeah, it is a pretty simple piece, was I having a snack while this was happening?
S: This next one really speaks for itself, the viewer will find himself or herself stunned by the beauty of our spots.
T: Yes, we look like living, furry, ink paintings.
S: Your nose spot is so charmingly crooked.
T: Your nose is so satisfyingly black and so are your ears.
S: Time for dinner.
T: It sure is.
