Everyday we make choices. Everyday we move forward or we stand still or we move sideways. How do we decide? In the end, do all paths take us to the same place? Do the decisions we make pile up on top of each other and become a disclosure of where we have been and a prophecy of where we are going?What do you think?
For this tiny (3"x3"x2") mixed media assemblage piece, a hinged glass lidded box is collaged inside and out with vintage Japanese papers, tissues, sheet music and other book and magazine images. On the outside it is embellished with a key, glass beads, a brass bell and other found objects. Inside this tiny assemblage, you can see a small naked child looking in on a far off world containing confusing images of war and peace. A hand reaching out of bullet casing and small Buddha sit side by side.
Notice the vintage toilet seat hinges used as feet for the box.
