The Sketchbook Project 2014

  • Found: Eureka! is my entry into the Brooklyn Art Library: The Sketchbook Project (Catalog # 230.8-2)
     
    I used found and collected paper and cloth ephemera; rubber stamp marks. Removing the provided sketchbook paper I sewed my own found materials to make fourteen collaged mix media pages. The text was found in Life Magazine (c.1970s) and Smithsonian Magazine (c.2012-13). The cover is hand sewn and the pages within were sewn on a 1950s Singer sewing machine with thread (rescued from an estate sale.)
