DisCo - Disintegration Collaboration Project at The Altered Page

Share --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
"Step 2" of Seth Apter's (The Altered Page Disintegration Project (aka DisCo) arrived yesterday, May 1st as 123 artists from all over the globe gathered in spirit to photograph the 'after photographs' of their bundles.
My precious bundle (PB) has weathered most everything Mother Nature had to greet it with, including spending an evening underneath the belly of a deer. PB is now safely indoors and awaiting disection. Once complete and photographed, the next stage will be to create a lasting piece of art from PB's remnants.
Perhaps the most notable experience through this 82 day experiment was my change in attitude toward inclement weather. Instead of cursing the news of another snow storm, I was secretly clapping my hands hoping it may bring another smattering of rust across my PB!

This should be interesting!
I didn't participate but heard about it just a bit ago. I did retreive a magazine that had been out in the fire pit all winter, does that count? lol
I'm turning that into artwork.

Thank you for your wonderful documentation in photos of your seductive bundle. I will be happy to discover the secrets your bundle has to offer. How did you get that deer photo? I have deer in my backyard also and I wonder how close they came to my bundle when it was in my small garden outside my backdoor. Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen
