inspiration...lovingly vandalized


I have mentioned in past posts that my favorite place in Vermont is Shelburne Museum. I spent a gorgeous day there last week checking out their Fashion: High Style 1690-2011 exhibit and Paperwork 3D exhibit. Wow.

Robert The had pieces featured in their 1800's Lighthouse building, reconstructed after being rescued from Lake Champlain.

"Obsession with the semiotic erosion of meaning and reality led me to create objects that evangelize their own relevance by a direct fusion of word and form. Books (many culled from dumpsters and thrift store bins) are lovingly vandalized back to life so they can assert themselves against the culture which turned them into debris." - Robert The 1995
