Stool, paper, stool

“I’ve also been experimenting with found art. I’ve been choosing discarded scrap metal objects, combining them with drawn elements, and then temporarily installing them on a site that relates to their former life. It is interesting to me to challenge the viewer’s perception of an object by reconfiguring it and its orientation by where it’s placed in the physical world we know.”

That is what I said, using “art speak,” in my grad school application. Not much of description though. This piece doesn’t come off too well in the photos either. The paper tween the stools is actually discarded drawings from college students. They were wired together and then trimmed with a jigsaw. On the edges I drew pictographs of chairs.
