May 14, 2011 – Egyptian Scrap Sparkle

I like that as the title. It sounds a bit more like the name of a recipe than a piece of art. But when you find stuff at SCRAP (Scroungers Center for Reusable Art Parts) the word ingredient often comes to mind, so the recipe metaphor fits. I actually have not visited SCRAP in a long time, but I still have a lot of stuff — too much stuff. My whole Reverse Collage series back in the 1990’s would have never happened if not for a piece of inspiring Plexiglas I put in the bag at SCRAP. Today, with some gold bits, I recycled an old, tattered little book about Egyptian antiquities that I found at SCRAP nearly 15 years ago.

  1. Thanks for sending us Egyptian Scrap Sparkle. At SCRAP we always like to see what happens with the materials, even materials that came in before we started working here.

    Personally, I am a fan. I have 2 of your postcards - Blue Dots 567 from 2003 and Brown Triangles from 2004.
