Every time we decide to take a trip, it’s difficult not to choose Venice again. I discover something different every time I visit. I left three pieces during this trip.
Ray Johnson Fan Club Relationship LXXV ~ “Putin offers new information about the birth of the universe” was completed 3/22/2014 using only trash from the streets of Venice on the album cover “Sheherazade: Artur Rodzinski conducting the Cleveland Orchestra”.
This collage was left the same day on the closed-up “Salumeria” shop, between the fish market and floating vegetable market along Fondamenta Sant’ Anna.
See where it was left below.
RJFC Sticker #44 was completed on 2/27/14 using only trash on a rectangular label. I made it while sitting at l’Excelsior restaurant in Mons, Belgium.
It was left in Venice, Italy on 3/19/14, on an advertisement poster for Boggi Blue Code, in the shelter at the Giardini vaporetto stop (above).
RJFC Sticker #45 was completed on 2/27/14 using only trash on a CD label. I made it while sitting at l’Excelsior restaurant in Mons, Belgium.
It was left (above) in Venice, Italy on 3/21/14, on a metal utility panel, just below a devotional statuette of Jesus at the Santa Maria del Giglio church near Ponte Duodo O Barbarigo. Shortly after I posted the sticker, an old man stopped to look at it for a full two minutes. After which, he promptly tore it off the wall and threw it in a nearby trash can.
Dust to dust…
