Temporary Print assemblage
Today as an idea generating exercise I made temporary assemblages with with some paper bits I had left over from print and collage projects.

Large Assemblage
All of my previous assemblages could be described as nano sculptures, none of them being more then an inch or two in any direction. But this lovely bit of infrastructure was found on an walk in Manhattan on West Ave and seemed to fit my theme, even at a gargantuan size of 9 inches long and 6 inches wide at the base.

Found infrastuture object, fabric, thread, map bits, and found words.

Monday Pieces

This is another in the thread collage series. The base is an etching I did of threads last year. Today I used water color to highlight some shapes, added bits from a dictionary and a final layer of thin paper on which I had sewn red thread.

Then two more flat collages.

OKAY, not nearly as liberal as I would like
but I am happy that a big enough portion of the country
voted a little more to the left then in previous years.

These are some collages I finished up today, found objects, thread, bits of found words
that felt as if they should be in a flat format.

What shall tomorrow bring? more threads to unravel and more thoughts to be freed.

Today I am content, relaxed and still hopeful...except for that dark Prop 8 cloud.

Bird on a wire

The assemblage photos are growing
these objects seem to really like going out into the world
playing around the village
stopping here and there to pose

Works in progress
Meditations on the void

Earlier I had made 40 round prints, trying to capture the concept of what the void would be. As in I feel as though I am falling into the void.

Thread Collage

If the threads of life start to unravel
take a chance and let them flow free
unraveling in a sexy, sensuous, colorful flow
and see what life they make

Architectual comparison to discourse
