Call it ‘snow’ or ‘bedsheet’

April 25, 2011


I’m a thinking… this is my way of talking out loud to no one in particular… about doing a series of collages based on photographs of old fairs. (I bought 2 books about fairs in the 20s.) I’ve always been tempted to do the kind of collages that I first saw in mags at college. It was a kind of mumble jumble of images coming out of buildings (especially the Eiffel Tower and the Empire State Building), statues (especially the Statue of Liberty), and waters (lakes, oceans, seas, bathtubs). But of course I would get bored. I keep hoping that I will trip over something that will kick my enthusiasm into overdrive. (Great feeling) Which makes me think that the 81/2 x 11 inch page has become the iconic measure of collages. Someone should just hang up a sheet of white paper (81/2 x 11 inch) and call it a collage. Name it ‘snow’ or ‘bedsheet’.
