gleaming the cube? no! Feeding the Tube.

This afternoon I installed this absurd and perhaps obscene tangle of consumption and novelty in Feeding Tube on King St. in Northampton.
I figure record collectors know a little bit about both..

before we go forward, we have to go back.

i will have to build up my threshold.

these are the materials: styrofoam, cosmetic pads, facial tissue, red felt, plastic 6-pack rings.
 this is one of several repurposing of the red felt i've posted over the past few years.
here's some of its greatest hits:

interestingly- that the last one from this list was posted a year and one day ago. our incubation period is nearly ending, dear clump and cluster of red felt mass..

i've been thinking a lot about impulse buys lately.

I'm in the process of making an edition of books made from images of drawings and collages I was doing while working on the Interminal Seed project at Vermont Studio Center.The books are 8" x 8" with 8 full color pages (copies). The pages are machine sewn onto fabric interfacing using multiple thread colors and stitching patterns.  The front and back cover are fabric. Books are hand-bound using heavy- weight floss and paint color swatches from the hardware store.

Each book varies slightly. If there is a certain color fabric you'd like for the cover, please contact me and I'll see what I can do...
