Don Driver assemblage artwork

Sculptor Don Driver is seen here in 1979 with one of his sculptures assembled out of familiar objects: in this case a Harp lager can, a doll wearing a feather headdress and a (possibly plastic) crab. The juxtaposition of everyday things in Driver's works created powerful and often unsettling effects.
