HOW THESE PAINTINGS CAME TO BE
WORKS ON PAPER & COLLAGES
These one-of-a-kind gouache paintings are direct enlargements of little black "File Protect" buttons on the back of floppy discs. These movable black tabs on the back of old floppy discs were "Locked" into place to prevent accidental deletion. After shucking open 1,000 or more floppy discs, I had acquired a sizable pile of parts; springs, slides, floppies, outer shells and, sliding plastic file protect tabs. Upon close examination and magnification, these seemingly generic plastic tabs reveal true personalities and shapes. The title of each painting comes from the manufacturers number that is stamped on each different type of slide tab.
