Desperately Seeking Content
Today I'm at a low ebb where the blog is concerned. I had to dig deep into my archives to find something to post. These are shots of a photographic textile sculpture I created in the form of a book in 1975. It is called "Days in the Life of Aunt Maudie." All the fabric started as plain white polyester, which I hand printed, layering snapshots and old scientific and botanical illustrations. The found photograph of Aunt Maudie is repeated over and over again, framed and dolled up from page to page. And no, that's not Aunt Maudie on the left, she's the quiet one on the right. My favorite page is the one "taken by a bad photographer." Tonight I feel like that, blurred with voile and solid, desperately seeking content.
