The proposal for the exhibition re:make at First Site Gallery was for each exhibitor to randomly draw from a hat the name of another of the artists in the group. I drew Sue Buchanan and then selected one of her existing works to re:make.

I make memory devices using repoussé to record landscapes or events on reclaimed steel containers. Last year Sue gave me an unusual heart-shaped steel tin her husband had received at a conference. Handing it to me, Sue said 'I think you could do something interesting with this.' For the re:make exhibition I used this tin given by Sue and accepted her invitation to meet her in Eagle Alley by making for her a 'site specific body object.'
The tin in its original condition.
