Original mixed media assemblage issued 1999
10" high by 8" wide (250 mm by 200 mm)
This was probably my first mixed media assemblage. It was wrung out of
me at the end of a brief and stressful relationship. After we broke up,
she mailed me back a package containing everything I'd given her. After
mulling over the contents for a while, I decided I would encapsulate some
of them into an "oubliette", the medieval word for a kind of prison that
consisted of a hole in the ground with a slab of rock over it. An unfortunate
prisoner would be chucked into the hole, the rock placed on top, and the
prisoner forgotten about.
