For The Last Lonely Adventure I completely unstitched two old camping backpacks and used the resulting nylon pieces as templates in order to create two exact replicas in burlap. The original external frames and all of the original hardware were reused, with the exception of the grommets. They were constructed during my residency at the Vermont Studio Center in May, 2008 To view the original backpacks, click HERE.
