How I Plan to Defend Myself, 2008

This was the last piece I made before leaving for Bali. It holds the very last supply of junk stuff I had still left over. Planning to enter it for consideration in the 2009 Artists of Hawaii Show, I left it with Marc Schechter, my long-time photographer, for documentation. Alas, I never followed up with it. It languished in Marc's studio while we were in Bali. He even started using some of the tools. After coming back I decided to pick it up and bring it home. Now it is literally the only piece of art left from my previous life.
