Revisioning Gandhi by Margaret Bourke-White

4--Re-visioning-Gandhi-and-the-spinning-wheel-RForsey

I have been more than a little distracted with papers and books I am trying to finish, mini urbex trips and my work at the improv institute during my “summer break”; but I finally got the Gandhi piece done for my What is Past is Prologue project!

What is Past is Prologue explores a history revisioned and asks: What happens when the images that make sense of our history (and eventually our future), no longer exist?

collage studies

I have been collecting ephemera from tut shops, dustbins, abandoned buildings etc for almost forever and I finally reached the point that I know what to do with all the “stuff”.

I started experimenting with wunderkammers/curiousity boxes a couple years ago; but a change of cities put the process on hold. The inability to get my curiousity boxes built led me back to collage and I’m feeling pretty good about the results. Now I have a great excuse to collect more!

I have only finished a few collages to date, but I started the gallery all the same.
