A Pinafore That Is Just Out Of Style

This is my final task for the year to be completed before my 30th birthday.

PURGE & PROPAGATE PROJECT
Take every noncommittal work of art that hasn't been finished up until this point and enact the following 7 steps on them immediately.
-
1. Cut work into as many 5" x 5" squares as possible.
-
2. Burn all parts and pieces under size and place ashes in a glass vitrine.
-
3. Scan each piece into the computer.
-
4. Take each scan individually and reduce it down to a single relative color.
-
5. Draw a 1/3 porportional square in the center of each cut square.
-
6. Fill the square with a perfectly macthed mix of oil paint relative to the squares reduced relative color.
-
7. All squares not completed by 02.14.2007 should be burned and those ashes placed in a second glass vitrine.
