altered bits: the reveal

i created a compartment-box out of an old cigar box and went to work filling it with my "disCo bits" and other items that i had either found in the streets of portland or intentionally aged for the project.  it didn't feel complete so i took a drive to the oregon coast and found all of the remaining bits and pieces on the beach or buried in the sand — a small bottle, a rust spring of sorts, etc..  i also fashioned a book out of some of the papers from the scroll and a bit of the fabric from the arm bundle that fits cozily into the smallest compartment.  creating this piece was a fun adventure that required lots of outings, but i didn't want to use anything "new" or non-disintegrated.
