About the project: Ed Ruscha's iconic 1962 painting OOF is not spoof proof, but SPOOF PROOF is. Made in the same font, colors, comic spirit, and proportions as OOF, SPOOF PROOF seeks to take advantage of a found bit of text which looks like the back end of of a word. OOF seems to challenge the user to complete it. After all, it isn't really a word; it is a groan or grunt expressing some sort of discomfort. SPOOF PROOF attempts to fend off future spoofs as it front loads O-O-F with S-P and P-R. It suggests that the riff ends here, but art builds on art in unanticipated ways, so the riff never really ends.
