A Message to... Paul Neal 'Red' Adair
I have made six drawings out of folded paper.
The drawings are now on the wall of my studio in London.
On sheets of white paper I have recorded each fold as a line, thereby producing six new line drawings.
I have given these line drawings to you and they are to be taken to Houston, Texas.
In Houston the lines should be turned into folds and the original drawings recreated.
The six recreated drawings should be burned and their ashes scattered in Houston Heights, the area where Red Adair spent his childhood, to commemorate his career extinguishing hazardous oil well fires until his retirement at the age of 77.
