Johnson creates different installations and spaces depending on the arrangement of the wine crates: towers, rippling waterfalls, shadowy tree-scapes, odd alice-in-wonderlandscapes, all are implied given the simple rearrangement of these craftily cut-out crates. Johnson, I’d like to volunteer my extended family as contributors to your materials supply. Now to tackle the trash created by housemates. Is there anyone interested in making a PBR can chandelier?
