Today’s project was to work with a collection of objects you have in your home. In assessing the collections that exist in this rather small New York apartment, it became apparent that there are far too many for a home this size.
A pug counting contest at the end of a wine-filled evening (my friend Joe won and finally received his pug-themed prize last night) meant that an inventory of pug objects had been taken fairly recently, although it has grown by a few since then; the approximate count is 80. Baking cookies is a favorite hobby, and a collection of cookie cutters has amassed over the past few years; it now exceeds 100. Absolut ads have been accumulated since 1987, so it is by far the greatest assemblage at over 200.
Taking an object from each collection, and in keeping with the theme pug theme, a collage of pugs was assembled. It includes an Absolut ad of a couple and their puggle (ok, so a little artistic license was taken. . . sorry to you pug purisists out there), one of the 80 pug objects in the apartment (fairy pug- thank you, Francesca), and a pug cookie cutter.
An update on yesterday’s Pebble Pug project: the pebbles were still in situ this morning. In going to check on it, I noticed a security camera at the entrance of the cone. So, this project was likely captured on a video that no one will ever see as well as the pictures from yesterday’s post.
