Airport security is not a fan of assmeblages with vintage scissors attached--and time was not on my patron's side. Knowing that it would make a good story and an even better blog post. Libby (aka patron) wrenched the scissors (can you wrench scissors???) from the piece and made it through security just in time to catch her flight.
Now, I don't reccommend you trying this with any of your own art, but I, myself was thrilled with the opportunity to revisit a piece of art with such a great story. Perhaps I can think of the whole thing as an "art happening"!?!
Uhh, what are the socks for? Well, dear reader, for future reference, I don't work for free.
I do, however, have a sliding scale and will do restoration work for adorable green knee-hi socks.
Please make note of that.
