Ken was just thinking about it.

Robert did it.

They talked.

So with Robert’s tablescrap as the impetus, we (Robert and Ken) invite you to make a collage using whatever is on your workspace right now – the scraps, the leftovers, rejects, and refuse -- and post it here to this forum. Maybe something that makes you chuckle to yourself as you’re doing it; or not. Quick and dirty. Little editing. What falls together. You don’t even have to use glue if you don’t feel like it. Just for grins. And a photo of your workspace along with the collage would be nice.

 

Here are mine.

First, the desktop workspace and a collage.

My pleasure Ken,

I should add that your prompt and my unexpected coupling has spurred a series. I am now collecting materials for a series of "marginalized landscapes." So thanks to you too!

Very Cool!

I share your thanks with Robert, he gets at least half of the credit/blame. Afterall, he did it, I was just thinking about it.

I trust we’ll get to see some of the marginalized landscapes posted here.

Thanks for posting. Seeing peoples' work space and the collages that come out of them is so interesting.

I made this one out of scrap yesterday while i was already struggling on something else for a couple of days. It took me around 20 minutes to put it together. Also a photo of my work space.

I was in last week in New York City. I working already as usual under the influences...

Thanks for the workspace photo. And welcome to the site. Will there be an NYC series soon?

ps: I lived in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn for 20 years (before it became the hip place it is today). Seeing the MetroCard makes me a little homesick.

:-) Thank you, Ken!

Brooklyn is a wonderfull place.

Well, I working on a little scrapbook to reflecting my days in New York. As I done in Barcelona and in Hungary at Lake Balaton. You´ll see it soon!

i love using scraps. i keep a collection of odds and ends i find on my floor for works that just pertain to scraps.

here is one that i just did a few days ago.

Matthew, welcome to the site and thanks for the scraps photo. Interesting how, through a process of selection and placement, scraps become more than just scraps. I have to admit, though, that the only things I find on my floor are old popcorn kernals, and unidentified pieces of broken black plastic.

ken,

thank you and glad to be apart of this group. i'm excited to have run into this site. i know a few of you from other websites and  contact with a few. excited to meet many more of you and engage and share my work with all of you. plus i get to see amazing work by others too.

scraps to me seem to have more possibility than intentional pieces found. its more about shape and color than content of image with scraps at least for me. plus there is a sense of problem solving with scraps. how to work them into a piece without modification of the scrap. its a very interesting process. i will post more pictures of scrap pieces. i'm actually working on a whole series for an upcoming show in October where i'm just using scraps and building more abstract collages. i will post a few of those very soon.

thanks again.
