Come Play With Me
altered short stories
5 x 12 x 4"

Come Play With Me began with a book of short stories intended to spice up the sensual activities of the reader. They are playful accounts of couples experimenting sexually. The author acknowledges the use of language to titillate the reader. By taking apart these stories and indiscriminately placing all of the words in a transparent cylinder, new stories are formed. The viewer becomes the author, piecing together the words that stand out. While many words diminish without context, some words retain their power, offering much connotation even when isolated.
