I was so pleased to see this weeks word, "equipment". This is a page from my altered book. I did it just last week and as you can see it features a piece of equipment! I love the idea of machines, especially old ones, being used metaphorically. This made me wonder why I like to put machines or math or science in my art and I think it has a lot to do with the wonderful art of Roland Emett. The Ontario Science Centre has a fantastic example of one of his whimsical machines that always stops me in my tracks. He creates the most marvelously detailed and whimsical equipment. I have one of his books and when I was trying to find link for this blog, I was surprised to see how hard his books are to find. He should be much more famous! If you haven't seen his work before, take a look. You're in for a treat.
