a few months later

i know its been awhile, and I'm sorry about that, but life here has gotten in the way of thinking in any sort of ordered fashion. wanted to give an update on the collages in public, and here are some pictures i took a few weeks ago of the situations. "accumulation" is totally gone, in that the construction barricade is totally gone that it was on. "glob" has been covered over by some posters. they had plenty of room, I'm not sure why they chose to paste over the collage, but i guess that's just territory. "leaning" has some tasteful additions that almost make sense in terms of its structure, and "gyrate" is on a panel which they seem to take off to access the space behind it. when i stopped by to take some pictures the whole panel was removed and off to the side. seems like it had also been cut down slightly, they left the collage on there and just cut through it. "spurt" is pretty much the same, i really thought someone would have spray painted over it by now! I'm very happy to watch these collages as they morph and change while living in their new outside enviroment, and will post some detail shots soon.

oh and also, 2 of my cyanotypes will be in a show at Soho Photo in November, "leaning" and "pile #3". I won the "jurors prize" (which means he really liked them), so it should be good! more info soon....

"Glob" looks like it's trying to escape into the third dimension -- with the streak on the background leading from the collage down to the rag on the sidewalk, it's a neat side effect.

true! i like how they have changed due to the environment.
