  2. Hi David, thanks. The Cargo Cult is a fascinating subject and theme and I have enjoyed seeing the Field Study emanations and manifestations about it. The pictures above are from a project in 2006, part of a celebration of a local food festival. Of all the elements I recall getting very excited about, it was the (cheese) grater lantern study. I thought the ark lantern could be understood as a form of cargo cult lure or decoy - or even a mothership-garden shed come to land on your landing strip. While trawling the internet image bank via "cargo cult" I found this Ray Johnson link: http://www.artpool.hu/Artistamp/87-07/Chew/CargoTour.html
    I'm looking forward to seeing the 2011 Field Report and contributing to the 2012.
    All the best,
    Julian.
