Found Objects #4

Here’s what I picked up today on my way to the Clover lunch truck (I ordered the chick pea fritter sandwich and an hibiscus iced tea):

1) red plastic lobster
2) heavy chrome ring
3) bright blue pristine unsucked tic-tac
4) plastic blue arch
5) striped dragonfly body thingy
6) long piece of reddish rubber ( perhaps from someone’s shoe?)

Back in my cubicle, I couldn’t resist the urge to assemble and photograph…

Found Object #3

Flourescent Orange Vs! Found on Holland Ave., Somerville, MA

I couldn’t resist bringing these Vs home and arranging them on a piece of black construction paper. I guess it really doesn’t take much to amuse me…

Print from Found Object #2

Tongue Depressor Man

Tongue Depressor Man in his City of Circles

I made this before drinking my first cup of coffee, which sits steaming before me now (Yum!). I’ll add more to this with charcoal, graphite, and silver pen. It’s a small piece — only 6″ x 6″. I like to work small. It feels like the visual art equivalent of a poem. A world I can tuck between the pages of a book.

Found Object #2

I am fond of basic shapes – circles, rectangles – so this caught my eye. The irregular shape at the top reminds me of a spoon handle or “Tongue Depressor Man” — as I see the silhouette of a long-necked bald man atop a tongue depressor; he has a big pointy nose. I found this on A Street near Fort Point Channel among the trash and detritus deposited on the sidewalk by a melting snowbank. Tomorrow morning, if I am up early enough, I hope to use this in a printmaking project.
