Another stimulus package?

"Stimulus Package II (Circle IV)"
manipulated digital photograph by Mick Mather
I'm already hard at work on the sequel to Seth Apter's project, Disintegration Collaboration, with a series of digital prints. These will come into existence as manipulations of a series of photographs I took of the only bit that remained from Stimulus Package I, a piece of string. You can see the original photograph at my other blog, No Matter What Shape-The Archive. I've also begun toying about with the idea of creating a sculpture that will use the string as a foundation, coating it with plaster and shaping it as I go along. Then what? Out into the wild again for further disintegration? ... and he scratches his head!

Stimulus package or survival kit, there's something I'd need right now. Not going so well.

You need to go to the libary I learned how to make dolls with wire and paper machie there it is entertaining what you can learn at the libary.

I love this one also - it dances while remaining still. Like a mona.lisa. smirk but kinder.

Very very nice, Mick.

I think I have a few books that will help in my own library but I appreciate the tip. My thinking seems to be taking me down a road once traveled by Giacometti.

John:
I thank you for the comment. As I gaze upon it again, it's a bit like a fine, Corinthian leather patch that's coming undone!

Ah, I like the tan colors. I see pillows there and a head resting on them, interesting.
