Palimpsest Stone in Box

Palimpsest Stone 2015
stone, antique paper, dictionary fragments, collage, ink, graphite, 

words from Conrad Aiken's House of Cards poem, cardboard case



"The pages of our lives are blurred palimpsest:New lines are wreathed on old lines half-erased,And those on older still; and so forever.The old shines through the new, and colors it.What's new? What's old? All things have double meanings,- All things return."


Conrad Aiken, The House of Dust, III. Palimpsest: A Deceitful Portrait.
