imaginary glory


So, imagine if you will.....

you have a shiny red apple and it is a holy object, an ICON, a thing to be worshipped and revered and placed in the most respectful of places where such reverence will be obvious and discernable....

got that?

good

Now, imagine if you will, being asked to build a structure on which to place said reverential object of iconicism.....

"how wonderful" I hear you say ...

"what an honour"

"so exciting"

The mind boggles does it not....bulging with ideas of shape and oh, the marble and gold and stained glass ......

Imagine, if you will, being asked to do this thing, to build an alter for such a purpose.....



out of bloody newspaper



such is my day.........................

I have done it! Such was my day yesterday stooopids....gosh. I will take a pic and show you my retarded brilliance for sure...did I also neglect to mention that it was a group exercise and four of us (2 of whom were boys with pimples and limited vocabularys)did build a very Inca-an piece of paper structure that was perhaps, a little boring but did work!
I shall be painting on toilet paper as finances do allow for this indeedy dooooooooooooooooo.
