Chalk self portrait drawing on hospital appointment letter made into a badge of wearable misery art.

Private and confidential

Private and confidential

I was delighted to find out last week that this piece was accepted for Creative futures Tight Modern travelling exhibition which I heard about through DAO.  

It's a self portrait I made in 2012 on a hospital appointment letter. It got a new lease of life recently as a piece of wearable misery art when I made a badge out of it.

I really like the idea of someone I don't know wearing a piece of my misery... would that it might lighten the load.
