Reading and Writing Compulsory Figures

Pet parasite is a transrelation of several compulsory figures that this exhibition considers.

Taking my new cloth scrap test friend pet for a walk in the park.

Ohhhh good looking rag beside gypsum pollen.

‘Rococo’ or ‘baroque’?

I say ‘baroque’ but I think you like the first one better, pet.

Baroco in a worm mirror...

Do you think the worms are the squirrels’ pets? Pets can have pets, right?

Good question. I think the squirrels are the worms’ pets. 

Can a pet pet a bigger pet pet?

A pet pet can pet a bigger pet pet.

Will a wet pet (worm) let a dry pet (squirrel) pet its pet’s pet? 

Yes.

Or is it better for a pet to let pet let?

You sound stressed. Sending you good pet vibes.

I gave myself a mild cold yesterday evening when I got in a panic but I’m feeling much better now. I may just need to get some sorta tonic juice before I venture out today. I am filming the garden at different times of light, so if you go to visit your dad let me know because I might like to go and film some worms and aphids at twilight.

This pet misses the other pet’s pets.

What about the title “Compulsory Figures/Pet Parasite”? Or do you prefer “Bread Teeth”?

That’s a hard one. Both of those titles deserve a chance. 

So many distractions today, it might be easier to meet tomorrow. I can just tell that my inner dolphin needs pet care.

Are we in 2018? 

Pets don’t care about that kind of stuff.
