“Sonnet,” a Work by James Spencer Russell

This is a written draft, a “Sonnet,” that forms the idea for a finished piece constructed by Jim.  I especially enjoy his mention of the Fugs and we get just a tiny peak into his thoughts about Cornell and Nevelson.  Jim developed the draft into a fully realized work of art full of imaginative code.  (Click on the photographs to enlarge.)
