Two Months


October 16, 2002 - Heavy frost today. clear and pleasant but cold. this project started 18 months ago but the idea has been with me since 1983. the text remains uncorrected on varied papers, some with gelatin sized color. the two months are taken from Horace Smith's diary in the Archives Division of the Wisconsin Historical Society.

The images evoke scabs, pitiable scraps, and how these things become badges of honor. within days of printing the September 11 citation, disaster struck and it was impossible but to acknowedge the event by adding to the text.
