Flat Rate # 2 as I received it from Adam
  • I was delighted to find this beautifully crafted piece outside my door, and after sitting with it in my studio for a month pondering what intervention could be made on this object it occurred to me that this piece was too succinct of a statement to alter, destroy, or defile in any way.  So i deemed the piece complete, closed the box and started from scratch.

  • With the third exchange I was interested in layering materials with little work done to them, and also wanted to explore ideas of fragility. I decided to send Adam a Pyrex bowl that had been broken once before. First, I epoxied the bowl back together and then I designed a layered packing system that would hopefully prevent further damage and sent it off to Maine.
