Kris Henderson has moved forward with The Erosion Bundle Project, a continuation of Seth Apter's marvelous Desintegration Collaboration Project. I'm a little bit late, having just found out about it via New Zealand's sweetheart, "Lucky Dip" Lisa, but was finally able to get my own piece hung outside yesterday. I spent a bit of time building the 3" X 3" "Erosion Cube" and when the end of the project arrives, a small documentation booklet will likely appear. If you haven't seen my documentation of Seth's "Disintegration Collaboration Project documentation, "From the Proverbial Ashes", you can still get it for FREE here. Anyway, for full info and a peek at what others are doing with Kris's next step, click on The Erosion Bundle Project link above.

I love it. Do you hang it outside and let the elements change the cubes?

Yes ... in fact, that portion of this digitally stitched image - on the right - is as it looks installed outside. The image on the left is the almost-finished Cube (before the top and hanging string was added) in the studio. Filled with layers of shredded paper, dryer lint and some old leaves, this will become a piece of hand-made paper for the August 1st reveal and end of the project. Last time, the entire piece came up missing, only the string tying it to the tree branch remained ... that same bit of string was unraveled and used as part of the hanging mechanism for this new piece. Hopefully, I'll have something left to make the paper with.

So, come on in! The water's warm!

Wow! Very cool structure. Element friendly! Can't wait to see what you get. Hopefully more than a piece of mere string.

Thanks, Kris. I surely run a great risk since almost everything here will make excellent nesting material when spring arrives. Be that as it may, and come what may, we'll deal with what's left.

Without knowing it, I've had several erosion bundles already. I put them out for the birds to eay. Let's see if I have an old photo somewhere.

This one could be an erosion bundle :

The most recent one.

Yes, a fine bundle, Hèléne. I have a sneaking suspicion that the birds are going to have at it with mine, too. Anyway, join in the fun!

Thanks so much, Seth. In case you missed me saying so, I used the string - the only bit left over from your project - to hang this one! :)
