Late one afternoon in 1999 Tim Wyborn and I found an old photocopier toner in the library bin at Victoria University. Seeing the potential, but having no idea what to do, we grabbed it and headed back to my house. On the way Tim decided to smash the toner on my lawn and came up with the formula: SMASHING STUFF = ART. That sounded like fun, which produced a second formula: ART = FUN.

While Tim was smashing the toner, it started to rain and black ink ran all over my front yard (much to the annoyance of my flatmates). While he was doing this I got the idea to lay numerous pieces of paper on the ground around him to capture fragments of the event in plastic form. Never exhibited.

    I had a feeling you’d like these. Been ages since I looked at them – kinda forgot about them and then rediscovered them a few weeks back. Thanks for the lovely comment!
