Relationship CXVII (SEND YOUR FRIENDS TO KILL OR GET KILLED BY LOTTERY)

This was completed on 1/20/16 on a used DVD while sitting at Starbucks on 4th Street in St. Petersburg, FL.
(double sided)

It was sent to fellow collage & mail artist RF Côté in Quebec, Canada around 2/10/16. (the mailing label is actually a Dunkin Donuts “sell by” sticker. I swiped a long strip of them off the counter one day while buying donuts.)
This was the first time I tried to send one of my DVD collages through the mail with just a stamp on it. When I first took it to the post office they wanted to charge me like $14 to send it in an envelope because it was “non bendable”. So I just bought the stamps that it would cost for the weight of a letter and dropped it in a mailbox. It got there just fine! Need to do more of these.

Relationship CXVI (IF YOU ARE NOT A WINNER, PLEASE BECOME PART-TIME GUN DEALER)


Completed ON 1/17/16 while sitting at Starbucks in International Plaza in Tampa, Florida. It is made by collaging found trash on a used DVDR.


Sent to & published in the Zine “Be A Pal” Issue 1
(along with sticker # 65)
published by Jude & Val Lobasso

(and I got issue #13!)

Relationships CXIV & CXV were completed on January 13, 2016 while sitting at Starbucks Park Place in Pinellas Park, Florida.

For this piece, I used an old used DVD+R (i think I found this one on the ground?) and I separated the top plastic layer from the bottom magnetic layer. This was to be a collaboration with RF Côté in Canada, so I sent him both halves to finish off and he sent one back to me. The center face part of this collage, was from a Pinellas County Sheriff’s office Wanted Flyer of a wanted criminal. The rest, I just tried to mirror in compositional elements.

This (below) shows the CXV half with RF Côté’s collaboration which I received back from him in April of 2016.

I left it in a little, transparent informational flyer box, just outside the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery at Florida SouthWestern State College in Fort Myers, Florida on 5/9/16.

I don’t think I ever saw how the other half came out.
