So I made this thing for the AIM Biennial … woven structure of reeds & random bits … it took me a couple weeks.
It was alright. When I finished, 36 hours before installation, I cleaned my studio and sat down.
Then I had another idea, so I got up and started making that.
Paper mache. I figured if it didn’t work out I’d just use the original.
Spray painting on the roof.
It makes more sense this way. People can write on the sculptures. You know how you test a pen by scribbling with it?
I wonder why I had to finish the first piece in order to move beyond it. Maybe it’s that cleaning a room to me is like cleaning my brain. Or maybe I was just reserving judgment until it was finished.
