Inspired by Seth Apter of The Altered Page, I've begun somewhat of a mystery of a project called "Disintegration." The idea is to be inspired by the natural evolution of time, in collaboration with nature. I chose to use signatures from an old "1939 Supplement to French's Catalog of Plays" which I have been holding onto for quite a while. I have a feeling that our New England winter will be a wonderful collaborator! I have absolutely no idea how this will play out, but I look forward to the big reveal in spring, when I will figure out how to use the results.

2/26/09 -- Checked my bundles today and it looked like two of them were missing! There were four to begin with, including the cover of the 1939 booklet that I loved so much. And that one was missing.

So, I looked all around, and found both of the missing bundles. One was about 10 feet away huddled against a bench underneath my porch, and the other was hidden underneath a sled! How did it get there? Does it not want to be part of this project? Does it want to come back to the studio where it was nice and warm?

Anyway, I tucked both bundles back where they belong, and hopefully they will stay there this time.

what a wonderful tribute to Seth's creativity from his Disintegration Project. Love your pictures and look forward to seeing your 1939 Supplement to French's Catalog of Plays, through both time and the power of nature, unfold. Best- Jill

So whimsical to see your 1939 book planted in and among something that will promise to burst forth in spring .... it looks like a gardening secret .... who knows, maybe that particular planting will come forth bigger and better than any other year :)

I am so happy you will be joining this project. The shots of your pages in the snow are beautiful. Can't wait to see how they change over time.
