dry humour

25th March 1996

A solo exhibition of my collages in Jordan finds me in the extraordinary realm of Petra in the south of the country on the Eastern edge of Wadi Araba.

Wandering through this desert canyon's ancient city, I stumble across a group of people bent over scrabbling in the sand. Being an archaeological site of great significance attracting scholars and students from around the globe I jokingly ask one of them:

"Someone lost a contact lens?!!"

"Yes." came the reply.
