The City of Lost Things

Here’s another shadow box for my upcoming show. It makes use of cut-paper shapes. The City of Lost Things (on Pine Island) is where those things that go missing turn up.

This is in a 10″ x 10″ frame. I forgot to photograph it in my studio after it was fully assembled, so here’s a photo from my phone, which shows how it turned out (in a rough, pixely way).

I started this in 2011. It hung in my studio for several years and I just finished it today by adding the fish bones. The frame is made from old floor boards from my house. The sole is from a pair of Birkenstocks that I wore in the 90’s.  To my mind, there are several things happening within this piece, which mostly has to do with being grounded and with “foundation.”
