Thomas wanted to build the Pan America building

,Thomas Pringle wanted to build something more complex. We agreed to use card board for his project. He asked me to assist him making a model of the Pan America building in San Francisco.

Thomas is besides Larry the only artist participating in the wood workshop, who wanted to create something specific. All the other artist just went for the scraps of wood and started intuitively to assemble semi-abstract objects, open to free associations, depending on their ability to handle the materials.

Some pieces might look similar, this could be related to the same work method of the majority of the artists and the availability of the same random shapes of wood. This is a scrap wood workshop and unless an artist has a concrete idea, the created objects get a kind of universal appearance unless one enforces his own ideas. Like in Normans case, if I wouldn't have suggested to help him make "Beatles" guitars, he wouldn't have participated at all.
