I began framing the set a month ago. It must be framed because the thin 3 millimetre panels must be hung somehow, somehow attached to the wall on the same physical plane as the 24 millimetre mounted panels - for continuity, that theatrical order of gallery presentation.
I broke the rip fence of my table saw by placing too much pressure on a plastic part. I ordered the part and, a month later, it had not yet arrived.
John Snow said, when I was his studio helper and apprentice, "Artists make do."
Usually I interpret what he said as, "Artists make and do." That is because much of the art shown in public, art world galleries, are assemblies that have been gathered either as unconnected or, loosely connected found objects or, the work is mounted and gathered as digital files with no concern for the future.
Jack was not as unkind to the late modern as I. The dextral, mechanical crafts of artists are no longer of value in "the art world". What he actually implied was that because supplies for making art were rare, artists must make use of what is available and, importantly, of relatively high quality containing that most important attribute of art material: longevity.
