"Why create a work of art when dreaming about it is so much sweeter?" - Il Decameron, Pasolini
A gleaner walks behind the harvesters and picks up the gleanings that are still lying on the field. When you work on a project, you leave a lot of ideas lying in your studio.
A tunnel from the National Bank to the florist’s across the street, a boat on the roof of a building, a collection of rat traps that don’t work, a collection of leaky footballs, a show that never begins, in which you die hundreds of times, a fox made of cardboard.
Could I put these things next to each other such that they tell a new story?
