The Mad Art Gallery in St. Louis was organizing their first benefit show for stray rescue called Mad Arf. What they did was they connected a selection of artists to rescued animals and the artists were meant create works having, in some way, something to do with their assigned animal. Mine was a nicely behaved, if a bit scruffy, old dog named Hogan. I came in one Saturday and met with him and his owner (whose name I forget) and did a roll of film with the intent of using the images in whatever I was about to make. "Lost and Found" was the result; an assemblage piece which incorporated the above picture with the hand in it.
