(1) A box of crayola – minus the black and white.
(2) An extra crayola box (cause I didn’t like to share)
(5) A small vial of iron filings
(6) Extra socks (why?)
(7) String (Again, why?)
This was according to my caregiver growing up. I visited her in Iloilo, Philippines. Mila is now in her late 80′s, ailing, but still remembers the contents of that bag. Amazing!
| THANK YOU | A very personal sculpture. Last February, I gave my personal thanks to my biological parents who brought me into this world. Here they are immortalized in the language of clay, a language that came to find me. It is true, alphabets can be made out of dust. Enjoy. 00
