The Material Whirl: 01.01.14 — Bird


Approximately 6-7/8″ x 4-3/4″, this piece is a departure from my usual cereal boxes and magazine pictures.  It is made from a variety of scraps of wall coverings.  The stamped pattern on the upper background is a very shiny gold, though the full metallic look is not visible in this image.

3-3/4″ x 4-3/4″, on recycled food packaging cardboard

The picture was inspired by the clipping shown above, which I have attached to the back, but unfortunately do not remember where it came from.  The clipping reads:  “Once upon a time, we believed that the world was flat — that beyond a certain point, there would be nowhere to go.  And though we now know the world is round, we still fear falling off imaginary edges, too often thinking there’s only so far we can stretch, so hard we can push.  The most dangerous limits are those in our own head.  When you feel you’re at your edge, look again.  You can go farther.”
