5200 badges (inviting 25 artist -friends to design a badge)

Constellation sequence concrete pœm (a la Brazilian "Noigandres" group, Ian Hamilton Finlay, 
Lawrence Weiner etc) originally planned then realised as a maquette in the early 1990's 
(but as with much visual art work made then and later, unexposed at time or since). 
Reused (identical words typographic font, arrangement, colour-scheme etc) for Nico Dockx's 
'The Badge Project' (portfolio or ALPHABET of "tender buttons", from 26 invitees), 
as part of 'We Did Everything Wrong'
