luminous work

Image-maker. In poetry, sound art, theater, collage.

i make things from words.  things that intend towards light.  here is that round box from the attic.  inside, letters, photographs, unlabeled cassette tapes.  some embossed invitations to my imaginative parties, which are select and increasingly irregular.  like you, i grow old.  i keep my hands busy and my mind occupied.  if it would be better to hold something in your hands other than a machine send me a message and i will send you something real.

priority altar-piece

a priority mail box becomes an altar-piece.  you know the portable altar pieces, 16th, 17th century for personal devotion?  i see them in museums and books.  I was thinking of them.  I included a votive candle, and the box left plenty of room for small offerings.

I made this for a mail-art exhibit in Connecticut.  Someone else has it now.  Is it you?
