Operation Plumb Bob - An experiment in the art of collage, I started with the rather creepy photo of testing of what a small nuclear device would do to a Navy blimp many miles away.To this I added a plumb bob, my grandfather's pocket watch, dirigible plans and a censured stamp. Whats it mean? I don't know. What does it project psychologically? Creepiness and fear.

Grandfather - Lower left is my grandfather. Upper right is his travel pass for the entire railroad. These are mixed with the undercarriage of a locomotive and the plans for a coal fired boiler. Known to all as JBA he was one of the few people I know with two middle names. J for James, B for Burke, and a for Alkmaar which is a little town in Holland.
