The oddest things make me anxious… like tonight, I was framing the final Polaroid Emulsion Transfers that I’m taking to the show tomorrow and I get all nervy about signing the mat! So I actually take a spare sheet of paper and write the title and date and my signature out as practice before I sign the real mat.
I genuinely worry that I’ll spell my name wrong.
Unfortunately, this, or similarly stupid errors, are not out of the realm of possibility: a good friend of mine has a photograph that I’d enlarged and framed for him at his request, that I cleverly signed “Edinburgh, Scotland 1988” when the picture was taken in 1998. I freaked and wanted to correct it when he noticed it, but he wouldn’t allow me to. Sigh.
