Laren Gaadman, Your Name Up On A Light
Procure a Fluorescent T12 U-Bend Bulb, 6″ spacing.
With connector pins at top, have person #1 write “loren” vertically on the left tube in red marker. Write “goodman” vertically on the right tube in red marker. Take casual photo of name on light.
Have person #2 make corrections to the letter “o”, in blue marker, by simply adding a line to the right side of the “o” to change it into an “a”. Take another casual photo.
Person #1 should decide how to install PDF in relation to U-Bend bulb and install it. Take photo.
Person #2 can make any installation corrections to the PDF or Object as they see fit. Photo any changes.
Loren Goodman’s A Man Of Letters, from his collection of poems, titled Famous Americans, parallels my use of specific letters. In this poem, Goodman favors the letters a, b, d, g, o, and p. Within my drawing construct, I tab the same letters with the exception of the letter o.
I suspect when Loren writes “I’m reading the Poems of Do Po”, he may be referring to me, as we were once Rutland Road house-mates. Did he read through my notebooks when I wasn’t around? Since Loren has mentioned me a few other times in print, I want to return the favor by having his name written, with corrections, on an unlit fluorescent light bulb. And since I don’t hi-lite the letter o within my gamut, all the o’s in Loren’s name are corrected to a’s. Hence Loren Goodman becomes Laren Gaadman.
