I forget that these are works that I have made. They seem too small a project to be works of their own. So I have placed them under the title 'forgotten works'

picture 1: 'conventions of mustard (with a grain of salt)'
picture 2 to 5: eraser frames
picture 6: frames and faces
picture 7 to 8: flowerpots
picture 9 to 10: drawing of my handmade reversible, cyanotype, box bag

A quote that goes with my mustard drawings (Picture 1):

'What about a modernist mayonnaise presenting itself to a formalist culinary critic's judgment of taste? He finds it awful, but he doesn't stop with his own judgment. This mayonnaise is put together in such a manner, he says to himself while tasting it, that something of the pure ingredients that make it up are to be found in the final results.'
