Original mixed media on hardwood box with found objects and narrative, which reads as follows: "I can still hear them laughing, sniggering, and in their conceit not just a few had chided me, insisting it could not be done -- the naysayer has such a thankless job. No matter that I rode Uncle Walghvogel's velocipede downhill at a fence of impracticable proportion, expecting no less than a cropper for my pains should I fail. This was my magnum opus, quite beyond their small minds, and by simply daring to show them that it could be done, I had forever parted with their company. For I am more than just an ordinary dodo; I'm the ever-expectant Dreamsmyth."
