See Mr. Sewell’s towards-the observer 8 ½ x 11 book-like occurrences, sympathize with neopolitan-linear arrangements, be cautious near camouflage patterns, stand in proximity with locations, objects, surfaces, coloured tarpaulins & duct-tapes, extruded/cut foam-forms; sequenced: silicone and cable-tie connectors, cut/torn remnants, orange/black critter resistant-meshes…and (although hidden from view)… strong magnets which secure autobiographical objects into one story punctuated by a biscotti-cookie,  a yellow post-it pad, a large free-range egg, a Pliocene-smoothed mini stone, 2 Home Depot small bi-coloured clamps, 1 used black china marking pencil (with pull-string), 1 too-squeezed toothpaste tube, a 1940’s heirloom ice-cream scoop, and local-notations locale-spelled, laminated and locale positioned about: actual locational-words.
