Signs of the Times XIII and XIV
Signs of the Times XIII contains bits of map from a "new" town called Green Hills in Ohio. Signs of the Times XIV contains a map of San Diego. Perhaps I should check these places out on Google Maps.
I'm starting to wonder if I shouldn't seek out a 12-step program to get myself off of Google Maps. I'm going to rationalize the whole thing by stating that I do not play facebook games. I do not have Wii, I am not a constant texter. Therefore, I have plenty of time to spend on Google Maps. I'm still considering it research.
I escorted a friend up to my studio yesterday. I proudly showed her my recent supply acquisitions, one of which was a vintage map of New York City. I now have a commission to look forward to using that map. Its been so long since I've done a piece with anyone else in mind.
I'm off to hack into that map. I find chopping up vintage items easier and easier. Nothing is safe from me and my scissors anymore.
These pieces are now available on Etsy.
