DISINTEGRATION COLLABORATION: MY BOOK OF CHANGES
The elements that resulted from the dance with Nature during the period between February 28th and May 1st
have been bound into a book that's 9x12 inches in size.
The weathered pages of torn parchment show markings from photos, paintings, ink, rust, and pressure.
Other pieces from the Bundles are attached to those.
I stitched the pages together, and then to the front and back covers. The front cover is like the northern lights in rust. Inside the cover are pieces in an opened envelope, rusted nail, and a deep impression of a metal part.
The back cover is what remains of a large mixed media scene of taos mountain and studio in the sky on heavy arches paper.
Along the front cover edge over the stitching is a strip of canvas in rusty accord. The tag reads: "Memory lives in the heart"
