In two days, the Disintegration project comes to an end. Be sure to check all your favorite blogs to see their end results. Partipant links are on Seth Apter's sidebar. Over 120 artists took this challenge, including myself. I can't wait to see how disintegrated the elements made my book. Had I known, I could have just left it in my basement and it would have had basically the same effect .
