testing, one, two, three, four, five....

haven't figured out macro yet
and don't get me started about
manuals that only come as pdfs...
but my new canon g1 x camera
seems to be the answer to my
photographic prayers...

MoMA and the morgan

exquisite corpses: drawing and disfiguration
at MoMA is not my cup of tea.
not enough drawing
and too much disfiguration.
still we had fun,
we five, sitting in the garden and creating
our own exquisite nonsense.

downtown at the morgan my favorite things
were these two drawings from the collection
of dan flavin -
both by hokusai.

everything i see
is a poem or collage
touched by early spring

okay, these are not especially touched
but the ideal haiku refer to season or nature.

oKAY, that isn't an ideal haiku.

maybe it's just ME who's touched.
or tetched. yeah, that's it, tetched.
by spring.

weather was exceptional.
had to rely on my iphone as
i didn't think to bring my
'real' camera. that should change
once i get my nifty canon g1 x
any day now...

torn paper from construction site walls
uptown and down,
flowers at union square greenmarket.

looking back, looking forward

several collages from
the last days of print studio

and the first few done
back at my desk...

digitally done

i've been experiencing withdrawal
from MoMA print studio.
no tearing or gluing
until this morning.

these were done on monday in photoshop
using familiar elements from the
reanimation library, one of my mannequin
photographs from paris
and a manipulated scribble.

the last day

after a month and a half, the reanimation library, mid manhattan branch is no more.

the blue shelved volumes filled with mystery and magic will return to proteus gowanus and the rubber stamps and glue sticks, the threads and carbon paper, the scissors, xacto knives and paper cutter will no longer materialize on the tables of what is called (curiously because it is below street level) the mezzanine at the education department of the museum of modern art.

winter, 2012 for me will always mean an altered book called audubon sans oiseaux, countless glue sticks, a handful of satisfying prints, hundreds (okay, sarah, thousands) of copies and 112 small, square collages. it will mean the company of ken, shirley and pat, benedicte and scott and sarah's wonderful team: ariel, maggie, alex, allison et. al.

thank you, all.

tearing paper again.

catching up...

which is to say,
so much collage,
so little time...
