we collected a hand full of vintage made in USA sweatshirts, wrote a list of words and phrases and mailed them to our friend Brian Kaspr. he did us the favor of air brushing all the words and phrases from our list on the sweatshirts, along with tons of extra doo-dads and squiggles, and then mailed them back to us.
inspired by the Robert Rauschenberg work, "Erased De Kooning" in which Raushenberg took an original De Kooning drawing and literally erased it and presented it as a new work.
in the same way, we have made all the words airbrushed by Brian Kaspr
