Shards and Fragments

Rust Dyeing paper in my basement.
Thinking about grids and maps and art made from things found in a particular place. All the rusty objects were gathered within a 4 block radius of my house.

I've laid out the objects, sprayed them with vinegar water and covered with plastic so the moisture doesn't evaporate too fast.
Here's the latest constellation of street find slow cloths. All the glass and mirror shards were found within a 2 block radius of Tyler School of art. I like how both the stitch-resist and the rust dyeing create a sort of glowing image on the surface. I think it's the strong light-dark contrast and the soft bleeding edges that make it happen.
It's been a good art day!
