Contemplating Quotidian Distraction
(A chronological explanation)
Tuesday, May 20, 2008
There was a story book I had as a child where the sick kid made a world in his bed, using the bedspread as mountains. Deborah Vaughan sent me an Emily Dickinson poem about the bed, and I whipped together a tablecloth reaction. The bones come from some find, but I glued them together with hot glue, also an animal product. How well they adhered! The plates on the floor are stickered, from a Pirate sticker book mainly. Raquel Ormella suggested I do multiples.
After I completed the tablecloth I found a piece of red gingham I'd been saving for ever so many years, and glued that on in situ.
