As an artist I have many ongoing projects.(365 is one), but my main body of work is finding and photographing dumped burnt out cars.
www.johngarghan.co.uk/
During the last 18 months these acts of vandalism have been very low and when they do happen the cars are towed away very quickly. So when I found this car while taking Bonnie for her night walk I was determined not to let it get away and I stayed awake all night ready for the light and a chance to click. Even once I started I was looking over my shoulder for the pick up truck that would take it away from me. It must of came while I was catching up on my sleep.

Made for the "Secret Santa" game on the Artist-To-Artist Flickr Group.

I’m not going to post who this is for, as it wouldn’t be secret then, but someone will be receiving this in the next week or two!

Made, as usual, from found steel; both the washer and the large circular element were lying beside the road and were picked up for my by one of my students – a fellow cyclist.

Set with a beautiful labradorite, blue topaz and lapis-lazuli.

From the artist’s statement, posted onsite at Artomatic 2008:
"This book / sculpture is part of an ongoing collaboration with the Arlington Public Library, entitled Transformed Books. These are extra copies of popular titles, withdrawn from the Library’s collection, and intended for the Library’s ongoing used-book sale. I choose a book that looks interesting to me, read it for the first time, and then transform the interior by cutting, ripping (and in this case burning), adding paint and glue, and installing foreign materials, in order to reflect the book’s emotional core. …"

And here is one of the many passages from the book that I’ve gone back to read more than once:
"…Years later he’d stood in the charred ruins of a library where blackened books lay in pools of water. Shelves tipped over. Some rage at the lies arranged in their thousands row on row. He picked up one of the books and thumbed through the heavy bloated pages. He’d not have thought the value of the smallest thing predicated on a world to come. It surprised him. That the space which these things occupied was itself an expectation. He let the book fall and took a last look around and made his way out into the cold gray light." — on p. 187 of the 20th printing of the Vintage paperback.

BT Artbox – Lifeline

The BT Artbox Story
The good old British phone box was designed by Sir Giles Gilbert Scott to commemorate King
George V’s Silver Jubilee.
This year we’ve got a Diamond Jubilee and London 2012 to look forward to, so we decided we needed to do something to celebrate.
That something turned into BT ArtBox. It’s a campaign that thrives on the nation’s artistic talent.
Across London’s streets you’ll find replicas of the Gilbert Scott phone box, transformed by the
imaginations of some of our very best creative minds.
Then later on we’ll be auctioning all the boxes off to raise money for ChildLine’s 25th anniversary.

“Lifeline”
Artist: Hannah Monteiro for ChildLine
Location: Museum of Childhood

The phone box is the child who calls ChildLine.
It can be anyone and about anything, hence the mirror in the life ring, when you look at this you can see a picture of yourself. The front of the box is weathered and covered in rocks, stones and sand. This represents how some young people get to the bottom of despair before they pick up the phone. The words on the box represent some of the feelings thoughts and emotions children use to describe that point. Right on the bottom of the front of the box there is a message in the bottle – this will be filled and sealed with the stories of children who have anonymously called childLine.
The back of the phone box represents what happens when a child reaches out for the lifeline that is ChildLine. By reaching up for the ring they start to repair themselves and are repainted shiny and new.

“People are not finding jobs and still have bills to pay and mouths to feed. I have friends that didn’t have jobs, and I suggested to them that I see all these people picking up this stuff and turning it into money,” Towers said. “I said, ‘I’ve got a truck and you don’t, so come on.’ ”

Don Towers of Cocoa, above, also known as Scrapdaddy, says successful scrap collecting requires a willingness to get dirty, a sharp eye for value and hard work. / Craig Rubadoux, FLORIDA TODAY

The man known as Scrapdaddy gathers his hard-luck crew and heads out in search of treasure in the trash bins, driveways and garbage cans of Brevard County.

The 65-year-old Cocoa retiree, whose real name is Don Towers, once operated cranes at Kennedy Space Center. Now, on most mornings he sifts through discarded items, finding ones with metal worth extracting. He knows where to find bits of gold in electronics, how to strip copper from a television and where to bring an old car battery for the best price.

He once found a 0 ring in the trash. That hooked him on “scrappin’¤,” as he calls it.

“It is like a treasure hunt: When you open the lid and see something you can use and all of a sudden other things start appearing,” he said.

Towers, other scavengers and the recycling facilities that receive their handiwork have seen the field grow crowded as job losses and financial hardship drive more Brevard residents into the practice.

Towers, who draws an adequate retirement check, got into the business out of curiosity and because it was a way to help his unemployed friends. He has been a mentor to dozens of people who learned the business of scavenging metals from him.

“People are not finding jobs and still have bills to pay and mouths to feed. I have friends that didn’t have jobs, and I suggested to them that I see all these people picking up this stuff and turning it into money,” Towers said. “I said, ‘I’ve got a truck and you don’t, so come on.’ ”

On a good day, Towers and his crews of two or three generate 0 to 0 from the sale of metals and usable items.

“But it’s work around the clock,” he said. “You balance that off with the gasoline you’re burning and you may not be any better off. I’m retired and I’ve got a pretty good income; however, this economy’s sucking it down pretty quick.”

Towers generally splits the take and gets an extra share because he owns the truck the scrappers use. But he’s generous to those he works with, especially if they’re facing a financial crisis.

This past Monday, I met up with an acquaintance of mine at a house he and his wife own that has two apartments in it. One of his tenents died in January and left a whole bunch of artwork and art books behind. I was invited to rummage through the books and take what I wanted. These are a few of what I picked out and took to the studio. There are a couple more at home.

The apartment still had a ton of stuff in plastic bags and boxes and a whole room that was used as a studio full of supplies, sketchbooks, and art.

Even knowing that it was ok to take the books, it still felt a little odd going through someone’s posessions in the place they so recently lived in.
