the dangers of fire

so, i have a collage class... this was project number 1.  I stretched a transparent fabric over canvas, thought it looked very american flaggy, so i decided to go for a kenneth anger punk rock americana sort of thing. I sewed, used hair, buttons, pins etc, lit things on fire, threw a bunch of junk at it, pennies, matches etc, and am ultimately pleased. 
A bit of a statement on consumerism, the value of material things, and how they can be eradicated, also the damage of smoking, and a continuation of the matchstick house on fire, metaphor for my life kinda deal.
