DisCo Redux


My Big Reveal for DisCo
My little BIG book of all things recycled.

The Disintegration Collaboration Project- dreamt up
and hosted by none other than Seth Apter fellow
artist extraordinaire a.k.a. "The Altered Page"

You can read about how DisCo got started here.

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle is the name of my
little BIG book, now a journal and keeper of
dreams.

The early days
Phase 1
outside in the elements.


First reveal May 1
Tired, patina'd and still holding on.




the final reveal- a new chapter, new design
DisCo Redux


small bundles of recycled painted papers, stiffened
and made into a small signature.


canvas cut in half, small circles now remind me of
the earth, and what we need to do to contribute
to it's health and well being. Reduce, reuse and recycle.

and back. Small coin which used to hang from
canvas tag is a reminder of the small changes we
need to make to make a difference. It is now used
as a closure to this book.


Thank-you for your visits and kind words.

and a special thank-you to Seth for always
inspiring and prodding the artist within each of us.

Is a suitcase and trunk..."

Like we used to say in the 70s, FAR OUT, man! Beautiful work, Andrea. I love seeing the whole process like this. I'm with the other commenter who said she wanted to touch it, pour over it. Me too.
