This was made over the summer. The box is constructed from Davey board, and plexiglas. The interior is glass marbles, and rub down transfers on paper. It's an interesting juxtaposition of our working parts, and industrial working parts. Mostly parts from a door, and skeletal bones and organs. My intention was to align the concepts of open door policies and the complexity of the human condition.

So voila, c'est fini. A week early, and I am really pleased with it. Going home to sleep, and seeing it the next day and not wanting to make any changes excites me. As I mentioned yesterday, there is an edition of five, so I have only constructed this one.

Better photos of the final construction tomorrow, but here is a preview of my final for silkscreen. I went to a gallery opening for Katy Stone last month and fell in love with her work. She creates three dimensional space with transparent and opaque layers. I wanted to explore that concept and silkscreened hand-drawn type and autographic shapes onto acetate and tissue paper. Well, Grafix Dura Lar. Using a limited color palette of light blues, warm gray, near black, and white I replicated my screens to have five runs of each color. There are enough runs to create five of these sculpture/books. The one I sewed together today is approximately three feet long.

- I have a wedding invitation project that I can't wait to post about.
- A wonderful interior designer that I am working on a site with. Her work is fantastic! It makes me miss the industry.
- And, of course, an empty Etsy shop that has lots of new prints that just need to be photographed.
