maiden voyage

So Paige and I are doing a project together.  We’ll be mailing things to each other that we fabricate and compile in our studios.  We’re replicating to some tiny degree the shipments made between John Bartram and Peter Collinson, botanists and statesmen in the new and old world, between 1734-1777.  We say to a tiny degree because our shipments won’t be on ships or take ages to get to one another.  We don’t think we’ll have to deal with mice nibbling on the contents or drunken sailors not watering the goods.  We’re making art and contributing to our friendship.  We even plan on having it all add up to an art piece due in Philadelphia 1 May 2013.  Stay tuned.
