Drew and I, under our project name Saint Flashlight, completed a work for the 2nd year in a row for the Crest Hardware Art Show. We originally wanted to place our haikus on the ceiling, but when we arrived at the store, we noted that the ceiling’s texture would not work with the electrical tape letters. So we looked around the shop for other locations finally discovered a shelf that had a wide front just right for Drew’s red letters. This shelf led right to a glass cabinet where I placed for my black letters. Drew cleverly thought we should pre-make the letters and bring them to the store on wax paper. A plan that went very smoothly!
Here are the complete haikus with mine first, followed by Drew’s:
The hammer goes BAM!
Nails quietly disappear
For the longer job
