My next PURE EXPERIMENTATION online class is being constructed. I’ve aptly titled it
Shabby Scraps REMAINS OF THE DAY. While I toil away in the classroom cracking eggs and educating the fine young punks minds of tomorrow, at night I am building big bonfires (in my mind )and scribbling away in my writing journal. Diagrams, blueprints, flowcharts. Oh my! Since I have difficulty narrowing down my focus, I’ve taken my usual approach of more is more. Conceptually, this class will be a combination of a few shabby scrappy journals I’ve made in the last year. Not those exact journals per se, but a brand new one that will incorporate my favorite parts of each of those old darlings:
I dig going on archaeological scavenger hunts in my tiny studio and finding long buried treasure to use in these journals. I find all sorts of things that have been laying around – sometimes for years. Security envelopes, ledger paper, scraps of fabric, wallpaper, old photos, maps, book pages, and tons of other scraps. Every last thing found, assembled, stitched, and bound into a shabby scrappy journal. Disordered splendor at its finest.
