COLBY COLLEGE

This piece was inspired by a news cast where it was simultaneously reported that a small plane had flown into the White House and that a White Buffalo had been born in North Dakota, perhaps fulfilling a Native American prophecy that the birth would usher in a new era of consciousness towards the earth. At the time, I was doing a lot of work involving discarded household appliances, which along with wood carving, painting and hand formed metalwork became the assemblage altar.
