It's not broken ©2005, 7 x 6.5 x 1.5 inches. Found objects, fabricated. I made this altar for a Bay Area Book Artists concept exchange. I used wire, nuts and bolts, and glue to attach things. The glue was very radical for me. I almost always use rivets or another mechanical attachment.
The concept exchange works like this: each person participating thinks of a concept for a book. All concepts are written on slips of paper and each participant draws one. Whatever you draw is the concept you have to make. The concept I thought of was "rocks, paper, scissors." Dora Grinnel drew my concept. She did some research, even watching the Rock, Paper Scissors competitions on ESPN. In the end she liked the idea of a paper doll book, so she made a Rock Paper Dolls with Scissors book. I get to keep the paper doll book (which is wonderful), my altar will go to the person who thought of the concept "It's not broken."
