17" x 31"
Framed under glass
I took apart an entire Victorian photo album to create this piece. I used the pages, the brass hinges, clasps, and leather which I very carefully pulled away from the cover. The lens mounted above eggs is from an antique stereoscopic photo viewer. Behind the lens are two children hatching from eggs taken from old postcards as are the other images in the album. The wooden box holding the nest and hand painted eggs were originally used by a watchmaker to store his parts.
We all come a very long line of eggs and this piece pays tribute to our "embryonic" heritage.
Do you see a family resemblance?
