Many years ago, sculptor Davide Pan breathed life into a very rough concept I had for a garden gate at City Farmer. The gate used recycled gardening tools and was lifted up and down with pulleys. I wrote about that experience in the Diary in a chapter called Lust & Love at the Garden Gate. I have been a great fan of Davide’s since those City Farmer days. He has created public art, large and small installations on sites around the world, using primarily found materials. You can see some of his work virtually both on his web site and in his photo gallery. Or better yet, in person – he has a new exhibition called Defacing Objects of Desire. The show displays the first fruits of an on-going collaboration with 1-800-GOT-JUNK. Check it out.
