Monument of Myself











A piece of simple cloth that measures twice my height has my name written at the top. I am working this summer during my travels to unravel this cloth thread by thread. Shown here is the first sitting of this piece, done In Venice. I sat for 3-4 hours and got through about a foot of the cloth. This work is the closest to getting arrested I have come on this trip. The people who run the business in the building near where I was working called the police who showed up and said that they would arrest me if I did not leave.
