From Adam I received A medium Flat Rate box stuffed full of various parts and, old upholstery foam ↓
Specifically I received: 1 altered badminton racket, 1 length of coated yellow chain, 1 eye bolt, 9 – half inch threaded dowels, 15 – threaded mini lobster buoy type things, 2 – chunks upholstery foam measuring 9″x”12″x 2″, and a few gross thin foam pieces with white fabric on one side. I always enjoy getting a box full of random parts it makes me feel like a kid playing with things some people could confuse with trash, but as they say……. possible trash is awesome.
So I took these parts, and like any true material expeditionary I cut them up into pieces… then of course put them back together in fashion that made me smile and seemed appropriate to their integrity, I also turned a sweet handle. Then jammed all of the parts back into the same medium flat Rate box and shipped it off to Maine hoping that I had left room for Adam to take these further. I continue to enjoy this object based conversation with Adam, although I am finding it harder to describe what it is we are actually doing. In some regards this is a personal conversation between to visual thinkers that are for some reason sharing it with others… enjoy!
