of course a dark green background with either a copper or silver colored line. super dense style. my dad has a pin-striper painting tool that would probably work pretty well for this. also, it might be interesting to do a woodcut/lino cut print. that would emphasize the old meets new schtick that i've got going on, but why fight it?
i had toyed around with this idea in the past--specifically because it was something that i could have done with embroidery, but i think the scale of what i'm thinking really stopped me from stitching anything.
they could even be made into tons of other colors. blues would be pretty cool.

the idea is to create shrines out of old junked spaceship parts. the trucker would come across these relic parts along his travels and they would've become a kind of shrine either to the ship, passengers of the ship, or battle/accident that brought the ship down. the parts would be adorned with candles, produce, flowers, spices, and of course pickles.
i'm venturing off on this new idea and i've given it a lot of thought, but there's still a lot of things i have to figure out: are they presented in a gallery or photographed on site? if they're photographed on site, what kind of terrain are they in? is there an overarching theme to the gifts presented to the shrine? given the space of my studio, are they actual size, or are they scale models? what kind of a story do i present as background for the shrine? etc., etc., etc...

i was thinking how interesting it was that we never see the lower portion of the headstone--the part that gets buried underground.
john mccracken was making in the 60's. i love the simplicity of the beautiful minimal object (added to the fact that mccracken finished his with automotive finishes).
idea: what if there were headstones in space for people that died in battle.
what if this goo was somehow correlated to where the ground-line on an earth headstone was.
