All right, now I'm just being silly. Inspired by artist Hanoch Piven (mentioned yesterday), I decided to give myself the challenge of creating a scene using every object in the Ontological Museum Department of Objects, except for the three drawings at the end of the list. My self-imposed rules were that I could rotate the objects, but not reduce or enlarge them in relation to each other, and I had to use the whole object - and not just cut out a piece to use for an arm or a head, for example. I did pretty well with with this; I only cheated with the sun (from the nautical chart), and I used everything except the recipe booklet cover. Yet, that didn't go to waste, either, for I have named my masterpiece "60 Ways to Serve Ham".

So, go check out the other groovy stuff from The Ontological Museum (and have a look at things they need), and its associated site, the International Museum of Collage. Mmmm. Collage.

*singing* ham, ham, ham, ham... ham, ham, ham, ham...

Or maybe that's *hamming*, which is sorta like "humming", but saltier.

Cool site. I seem to have inadvertently collected a number of just such objects while taking walks or examining the ground in parking lots, driveways, etc.... I must send them right away!

Citrus Moon- bar none you have got to be the neatest person on the web. I will be back to visit and you are definitely going in my "devi" section of someone whose style I very much admire.
