The shop was filled with objects. What follows is a collection of works I created by combining found objects from the shop.
Work is never done. A textiles reference and an ill-placed hunk of ornate metal precariously balanced over the edge of a shoddy wood construction.
A sweet little thing that came together because I found these cutout "Date" texts. Who cut them out and why I will never know. But I know that they mean now.
Improvement on Minimalism
Improvement on Minimalism Detail
A thought about minimalism and what it was dealing with in the eyes of an artist/ jerk.
The fall of man was such a set up. Look at this tiny string and obviously there is something good in there just screaming to get out.
Purely aesthetic. I was fascinated with the idea that this was the method of securing the walls of your tent back in the day.
The Mapping of a Forgotten Object
I found this case in the upstairs all dusty and drab. Only when I opened it did the red velvet come through. I became obsessed with finding out what the case housed. There were wear marks in the velvet and I attempted to discover what the object was by marking the points of abrasion.
The Mapping of a Forgotten Object Detail
At first I thought it was a case for a rifle, but too many holes remain. I think it might have been some sort of scientific equipment, but I give up.
Candle Stick Holder
The idea of furtive necessary mark making being so compelling that any surface will due so long as it is immediately available.
Plywood Writing Two
I really lost a bit of myself in completing these. I wrote in a stream of consciousness and attempted to completely immerse myself in the thought. It was quite demanding.
Do Roaches Have a Heart?
This is a story of what happened to me during my first night at Elsewhere. I scared a roach to death.
Self Painting in Yellow
During my time at Elsewhere I completed a Self Painting in Yellow, sort of a magician on the street sort of thing in which I was able to go out and create one of my current series using the materials on hand.
A sounding board for my contact mic. and water drop. I projected the sound out a speaker on the street. The small purple stamp is 404, the address of Elsewhere.
