BC: All the Rest Have 31: A one-month journal using thirty-one years of detritus collected while traveling. "I’ve always picked up bits of ephemera in new places – a discarded homework page found on the ground in India is much more evocative than any purchased souvenir. Thirty-plus years of gleaning had yielded boxes and boxes of stuff. The time came either to throw it all out or use it for something..." Ellen Ziegler A Project of In Lieu Exhibit Space Seattle WA

1: I’ve had the great good fortune to travel all over the world, a passion transmitted to me by my father – a steel salesman born in West Virginia, educated in Ohio, and drawn to California by the business opportunities that followed World War II. Travel was always encouraged and sometimes even supported. When each of his children turned nine years old, he took them on a trip from Los Angeles to San Francisco – a rite of passage. As an artist and designer, I’ve always picked up bits and pieces of ephemera in new places – a discarded homework page found on the ground in India is much more evocative than any purchased souvenir. Thirty-plus years of gleaning had yielded boxes and boxes of stuff. The time came either to throw it all out or use it for something. "All the Rest Have 31" was completed in a month’s time using thirty- one years' worth of detritus collected while traveling. It kept me sane when I was between studios, working in a dark basement with six-and-a-half-foot ceilings. Now I can start collecting more. Ellen Ziegler
