I had not shown since I graduated college, and I was extremely nervous to jump back into the world where subjectivity reigns supreme. I am glad I did it though. From this show, I was offered another show at an art and history museum...which is coming up very soon...and I am completely unprepared for it.
The concept of the show without going off on a tangent ( hopefully ):
Try and give deference to the life an object or thing has held before we retire it or think of it as being worthless. How many stories has an old typewriter told...how many love letters have been written on it...whose fingers have typed on those keys...and what thoughts have materialized through it?
Well, I have got to get back to the drawing board...literally : )
