I've been pretty busy with a few projects lately, but when asked to participate in this interesting group show I couldn't decline. The show is called RECOVER, and basically I got to pick a vintage record sleeve to do whatever I wanted with (You can view all of the record sleeves they had, and who claimed which ones on TrickGo's flickr). The record sleeve that I chose was a split LP with songs from the musical "West Side Story" and "Flower Drum Song". I chose the sleeve because the buildings on it looked like something I might paint or make, so including the actual artwork would appear seamless. I wound up combining the building and pagoda shapes (hence the title), and I also pasted the text from the record sleeve on the back, rearranged to read as the title. Information about the piece is below:
"West Side Flower Drum Song Story"

Thanks to Gab, Maxine, Matt, Courtney, and the rest of the TrickGo family for inviting me.
