The Buck and Luna Doors

The Time When


‘boys’  and ‘girls’ lavatory doors. encaustic window pieces; mixed media, chalkboard paint, graphite pencil, chalkboard chalk, graphite powder, original hardware. 2011 Lou Messing

There are two inner doors installed in each lavatory door. There are two keys to open each lock. I have two keys and the other two are locked in the door adjacent to it. This represents the potential we all have as children and the need for cooperation/collaboration to open up to each other as we all grow.

H4H progress

One week to go! Habitat extended the work time for the doors by a week, thankfully.

H4H progress, originally uploaded by loumessing.

Habitat extended the work time by a week; which is perfect. This image shows the doors at about 65% complete, maybe more.

The time when…

The time when the truth itself was suffused with ruminations and rumors of ruminations to a degree that effectually rendered even loosely- alleged facts beyond recognition after landing akimbo on either side of accusation and defense in an unfortunately timed letdown resulting in a dustup over a mixup in meetup (It’s complicated).
