Protection Theory

I woke up this morning and knew it would be a day of minor artistic accomplishment, and it was. I exited my bedroom and carried the scaffold portion of HG downstairs to meet with the rest of its current pieces. I brought the scaffold or lattice upstairs to rest in the same room I slept in last evening, perhaps casting something onto it through the night. The video cassette vessel for HG was in good shape this morning. I need to add the center break, cut and glue the backer panel onto the total, prime it, and ultimately attach it to the master panel.

I looked into constructing or acquiring some wood pedestals for a minimum of 2 pieces for the show — DOS and MK. I'd like something that was at minimum 42in x 12in x 12in. Time is just my issue, as with most things.

I'm thinking about NACL, and after adding the suffocation device from HG to it, I will now look to add AC and RM visual figures to the work for the main focal point to run on top of the salt shelf. A new eight-part spindle top has been primed, and I have also added 2 side pinnacles to accompany the salt shelf. These pinnacles already have a great powder blue color that I would love to keep, but I will see as it comes together.
