Toward Becoming a Scarecrow

1968

“Like a moving snowball the body slowly builds a skin, based on where it has been. After emerging from heavy foliage, I need not look back. The 1000' path is clearly read from my outer shell. My body has collected remnants of its past. I have become that direction.“ —Dennis Oppenheim, 1971
