original reveal day
Today is the day we all reveal our paper bundles that were left out for nature to disintegrate.
A nasty windy thunderstorm took mine down one night and i had to find what i could of it and staple it together, then reattach to the tree. We've had quite a bit more rain since then, but it stayed put. it has seen hail, rain, thunder and lightening. Sunny days and cloudy days. I photographed it today, took it down and brought it inside. I put it on the kitchen counter and left to run a few errands. When i returned i found ants all over the counter and the paper bundle-yuk! immediately had to douse it in water-alot of water to get rid of them. It took about 20 min and i think i got them all. Once the paper dries, i know what i want to do with it since we are now to make an art piece with them.
fast forward a few hrs: still finding ants! they are hiding in the recesses of the papers...
