Big Small

My best friend likes to edit my facebook profile and for quite some time it has read

drag racing, getting tattoos, pumping iron, pimped out rides, heavy metal, sound systems that blow women's clothes off, hardcore poetry... pretty much just being extreme to the MAX, and butt hash.

Now, not all of that is true but I like extreme things. When I am designing something I like to do something that is either extremely large or extremely small. Or perhaps using a material out of the ordinary, for example freshman year I built a dog entirely out of peanut butter and toast. (Neither my roommates or I have eaten peanut butter toast since). So I like things like the piece by Raymond Hains above, which is a giant matchbook (93 x 80 x 45 cm)
