"Eye On You" Trash Chaos Vessal ~ 1 0f 6 photos

This series of art (Trash Chaos Vessals) is my commentary about society: our over stimulating culture, bombardment of visual "noise" and attention deficits. Also being graphic, conversation pieces made from trash

.

This vessal is made from Sunday newspapers. One must have great hand strength to fold and process the papers, then be impervious to pain as the hot glue seeps out onto one's fingers while coiling the strips. After that, finesse is needed to get rid of all those pesky glue blobs and threads without damaging the newly created vessal. I use an industrial heat gun and hope I do not burn the basket nor the art studio down!
