A multi-layered composite consisting of the following: Layer 1 - Notes from the ongoing alice springs project data analysis of written text which have been spatter painted; Layer 2 - A black/white xerox transparency of a photograph taken during the Trinity Church performance in 1976 of the artist as Ophelia (one of the 7 characters portrayed). Ophelia wears white eye paint to signify the weeping or winged eye motif prominent within what has been referred to as the Southern Cult, a cultural phenomenon among the pre-Creek Indians of the southeastern US.
The photograph of Ophelia first appeared in the 1978 edition of Queen Stree t Magazine].
The Search for Life on Mars was sponsored in part by a Venture Grant from the Ontario Arts' Council for which I am grateful.
