A Reminder from Selective Service. Collage, paper and glue. 1984.
My earliest self-published work was seized and destroyed by a middle-school teacher in 1978-1979. My self-published work between then and 1987, when I started publishing OVO, is not well preserved. This is one of very few items that remain.
I registered with the Selective Service in 1984 when I turned 18 years old. In the United States this is required of all men and not required of any woman. The difference between what was required of men and women brought to mind earlier civilizations and their initiations to manhood, inspiring this collage.
