transforming a traffic cone into art

always tough for me to make art depicting traffic cones - since they're so close to art already, hard to come up with something which amplifies their coneness. instead of trying to do that, will attempt to, in a piece, bridge the narrow gap between traffic cones and art.

here's a proposal for a piece which came out of the studio session last week. starting at the bottom, the image will become further removed from the original traffic cone with each repetition of projecting-and-painting. don't know how much degradation will take place, don't know if the top level will even be identifiable as views of a traffic cone - on the other hand, maybe there will be very little differentiation between levels - anyway, will know the outcome in a few weeks. right now, enjoying the not-knowing.
