The Contact: New Nails, 84" x 38"
A shack made during the gold rush with discarded metal pieces has been restored, to give us a feeling that it is the real thing from the old days. The original materials are there, though rearranged. The giveaway, if you look closely is the empty nail holes-dark dots-that contrast with the shiny new nail heads holding it altogether now. The galvanized nails will hold up the rusted metal shingles but never match.
