The works created in India were done on two different trips in 1997 and 1998. I stayed about a month during the first trip and two the second. I was creating the pieces in a small room with the intention of combining them all when I returned to the states. Trash, newspaper, food wrappings, train tickets and museum passes were all used in constructing these works. Making the pieces at night after spending hours wandering around the streets was as important as petting the cows and feeding the monkeys.
