Last summer I created a series of collages assembled from found objects off the streets of New York City. It was a small act of preserving the impermanent and the fragile. This summer I made a return trip to complete the project. In a moment of pure, accidental brilliance, I photo-copied my collages. The result is a homecoming of sorts. The objects are returned to the streets. Still ephemeral, the wheat-pasted copies of collage correspond with their natural environment, and will eventually get torn down, or covered over by other graffiti artists.
