work in Progress

This is a piece in progress. It's part of my Artforum Excavation Series. I have cut small rectangles out of the disco ball painting on the cover of an Artorum magazine. I am now in the process of turning a page into a cut spiral and pulling it through each rectangle on the cover. It's a time intensive process and it takes me about five hours to pull through ten pages. The piece is less than half done. Some of the pages spiral out to about eight feet long! The spiral section should be very full by the time I'm finished. As you can see, I'm only pulling spirals through the bottom third pf the disco ball. I like the way the spirals cascade to the floor! You can see the piece on my desk as I work on it.
