I come by working with bits and pieces and found objects honestly; my grandfather was a general handyman and the Postmaster of the hamlet of Burdett N.Y. He tinkered, puttered, patched This with That, and owned a garage/workshop filled with "might be useful" clutter. So working with found materials was natural for me, and I have always been interested in history and mythology. It seems to me that most things and events are made from materials that already existed, whether it's clothing from old plastic bottles or monotheism incorporating older pagan beliefs. So there you go: preexisting materials, fragments of older cultures forming cognitive, cultural, or visual patterns. And art. Those overlapping things are the ground zero of creation. It's all connections and/or breaks in the pattern. Also, the universe is damn weird. Look at seahorses or how many horrific varieties of Oreo flavors there are.
