Diane Keys, Lisa Iverson and a Vizma/Katerina collaboration

First up from Elgin the awesome Interface Trashpo Collage from Diane.  It doesn't look like it even lost any bits along the way Diane. I have no idea how you always manage to make everything you touch so trashionable but pretty soon you may be on the run from the trashpoparazzi.  I'll be proud to say I knew her when...  ;) and I'll be proudly wearing my glittery D-KULT for Life…

Apfel Keks -- "Eat Art" -- from Off-Scene Akademie at Hamburg

Cans On Blue, from Katerina Nikoltsou

This is the second time Katerina has stitched a found can to a K.N. blue painting, but this time we have 3 at once:  There the piece is, now on a wall, as it arrived in a large envelope. Katerina may have thought I'd want to cut the cans free and eventually do something else with them, but this is a work of art unto itself from Kat.'s own mail-art sensibility, and I love it. It…

From Erni Bar, of course, but even extra variety:  Cameras in Maine don't like close-ups. Will Erni kindly include in a comment his photo of ALL the bottle caps laid out plainly and beautifully? It's posted now at the E.B. Fan Club, and quite wonderful.
