  • ....a spectacular way to show my complete disregard for feminine wiles..ruby lips..rouged cheeks, blackened brows, largo lashes!
    I was welcomed into somebody else's opportunity to create a happening for one day....and not leave a mess!
    Sunny day, maybe late August..myriad of artist types inside and out on a college campus, New Brunswick, NJ.
    SAI, Summer Arts Institute spear headed the day. My part..I was given a large empty upstairs room and teen helpers.

    What I brought with me for the day were bags and bags of parts. Bits and pieces for which the ultimete destination was never going to materialize.
    So, in the course of the day we created a floor wide mosaic of perfume bottle caps, the tiny bottles themselves, brass tubes for lipsticks, hills of cotton balls, red plastic compact cases, ribbons, small round mirrors..on and on..relatively clean but probably pigeon scented as they came from an abandoned warehouse.... a vast space where the pigeons freely flew in and out and around. Boxes and boxes stacked high filled with a dazzling array of make up paraphenalia.

    At the end of the day we scooped up all the ingredients and brought it back for the pigeons as these parts would never be assembeled for their original purpose. A very satisfying day!
