These collages made from collected magazine imagery are the early beginnings of what has grown into the more developed series of site-specific collage installations. All the pieces at this earlier stage are scotch-taped together. This allowed me to work quickly and intuitively while I was getting acquainted with the material of collected images from glossy magazines.

This project would not be possible without the generous donations of used magazines from countless individuals. Special thanks to Philip James Salon and Twisted Scissors and Robert Jeffrey Salon.
