Hahahahaha, just noticed your comment about Eyediation and wanted to reply. Did you know Ben Banville? The vid was made in his Shelburne Falls studio. Way back when I lived all over Greenfield, born there in fact. Too funny. I used to butcher Vogue into Vague, a mail art mag early 80's, it was part of Ben and my 'movement' called 'Nebulism' which was invented on Chevalier Ave in Gfld on Feb 30, 1982. Cheers!
Area, region, stall, area, place of belonging, residence, may be given endless definitions of where one chooses to be, by place of birth, which spends much of life, gestate emotions, situations, feelings, making we like being there.
It is possible that we move for various reasons, which makes us to stop taking it in another physical space and its place in the World.
Or that our place in the world a small space like a room, house or a landscape.
One and only one set and choose where to belong. Where he expresses his wishes, his family or weapon projects.
So we always have "our place in the World, by choice or fate or whoever that knows things, we were up there. Wherever we say "this is my place in the world"
How, why and what's yours? Compartámoslo.

Coming from three generations of a shop family I really understand that! I never knew the difference between "stock" and "belongings" as a child and therefore got used to keeping everything crammed around me in pristine condition for when it was to be sold... Thus began decades of keeping everything in case it was saleable and eventually usable in an art work. I twice had the honour of going to Robert Opie's museum of packaging/collectables, have you ever heard of him? Your use of food packaging made me think of him. http://www.museumofbrands.com/
Thank you for your comment Michelle! People are usually terrified of my dogbabies. I have plans for some more... And maybe crow babies but that's another story. I find your collages interesting - it's a method I have never really experimented with. Where do you source your images/text? :) ~ Eleanor
Of course, I want to be your friend. I remember Virgin Prunes as a text and as one picture, because we make printing works. And the band played at the “Zeche” in Bochum, a discotheque nearby Dortmund and we worked for them. I thing everybody in Germany knows Nina Hagen - I do it too and I love her.
See you in the mail!
Nice to meet you. Thanks for the comment to “Für Peter”. Yes, the memories. This morning I had the chance to see some videos of Cabaret Voltaire on YouTube. I know the music but I never had seen a concert or a video of the band. So it was very strange - nostalgic and brand new together.
And today I saw also your collages - very cool. Respect!
Have a nice weekend - Wolfgang.
