Click here to watch the video that includes my piece Bandages: Pattern 1: CVS. Dr. Dreishpoon states, "I love this idea. Someone has taken Band-Aids and made a minimalist construction out of them. It's creative, it's got imagination, it's very simple, very patternistic and has the requisite obsessive quality that I really like. I like people who are a little on the obsessive side, I don't know why. I think it produces a certain kind of intense work."
