USING TRASH FROM THE STREETS TO MAKE ART ON THE STREETS
“Ray Johnson Fan Club” is one of my Noms de Guerre.
I use only trash and found objects in my hand-cut & paste collages.
Then I usually leave them out on the street for anyone to enjoy (or destroy.)
I made and posted four stickers and one larger collage during a recent trip to Geneva, Switzerland.
RJFC Sticker #30 was actually made 5/4/2013 using trash found on the streets of London.
I made it while on the ferry from Dover to Calais.
RJFC Sticker #31 was completed 5/17/2013 while sitting at “Le temps d’un café” in Mons, Belgium.
I left it in Geneva, Switzerland 5/26/2013 on a dog poop bag dispenser at a little park in Place de l’Octroi in the Carouge neighborhood.
RJFC Sticker #32 was completed 5/25/2013 using trash found on the streets of Geneva. I made it while visiting there at our rental apartment near Carouge.
I left it in Geneva, Switzerland 5/26/2013 on a roundabout street sign on Rue Charles-Galland, between the Museum of Art and History and the Palais de Justice. (above)
RJFC Sticker #33 was completed 5/26/2013 using trash found on the streets of Geneva. I made it while visiting there at our rental apartment near Carouge.
I left it 5/27/2013 on a large rusty planter in front of the Microcosm center at CERN (European Center for Nuclear Research) in Meyrin, just outside Geneva. (above)
It was a fairly productive visit for me and I also made one larger, record cover collage.
