I love pictures, and old things; my work is an exercise in combining the two.
With X-Acto in hand, I tackle piles of LIFEs and calendars and musty nature encyclopedias. I set to work carefully pinning the culled images up on bulletin boards. Only after they have been uprooted and held in suspended animation do I try to re-contextualize the images and give them new homes, and new meaning.
