Obsolete detail


8″ x 10″  Obsolete is an assemblage piece using found objects. The base is an antique telephone box with hinged door. Lady obsolete herself is made of an antique roller skate (yes, I had a pair like this when I was a kid.) a coil from an old Brownie Super 8 movie camera, a spool of typewriter ribbon and other odds and ends.

The text reads, “Over time, she and her world became obsolete.” On the open door is a semblance of a clock, made from more of the Brownie camera coil and the view finder. The front of the camera is mounted beside our lady, and below it rests an old television tube and antique cigarette lighter. Her world.
