I keep these scraps of cardboard around my studio as a surface to puncture my "Paper doll-Marionette-Fetish Objects", but inevitably they serve as space to write notes and ideas. As the turning of the New Year is upon us, I am finally getting a chance to file and filter these tidbits into information I can use. For example, Lyle Ashton Harris, appeared randomly on my cardboard, but was contextualized after a brief internet search. I am particularly intrigued by his use of self-portraiture as means to present various personae. This is something a I wish to explore myself- perhaps as a female drag queen...?
