Welcome to the new website! It’s been a long time coming and it was a huge undertaking but the result was worth it. You’ll find a vastly expanded site from the old one with new work added to older projects like The Untitled Project and Floating Logos, as well as entirely new projects in the media of photography, video, installation and 3D.
Summer 2010 is an extremely busy one with travel, teaching, public art projects, a residency and a baby on the way in November. I will be teaching in Madrid the week of July 5 at EFTI school for photography. The following week I will be in Paris working on photo and video material for the Pulse project. Many thanks to Rachelle Friesen for lending me her Canon HD camcorder so I can execute a dual camera video piece while I’m there.
During the first half of August I will be attending the first ACRE Residency in Southwestern Wisconsin. My ten days there will be spent in their wood shop working on sculptures for the new Structures project. I don’t know exactly how long these things will take to make but I hope to complete at least one and make significant progress on a second. I’m still learning about the ins and outs of fluorescent lighting.
All the while, my three assistants, Kim, Alice and Ilwon, have been working on finishing more Chinese pieces for The Untitled Project. Currently there are three completed that are now posted on the website. Ultimately, there will be 12-15 pieces in that chapter of the project which I’m hoping to finish out by the end of the year.
There are two public art projects coming up this summer if you are near Chicago or Vevey, Switzerland. I will have a video installation piece in an empty store front in the WPB Make Believe exhibition in the Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago. I will post documentation of the piece as soon as it gets installed but you can see a rendering of the idea on my Public Art page. The exhibition starts around the middle of July and runs until October.
I am also participating in Festival Images in Vevey, Switzerland. The organizers will be displaying pieces from Floating Logos and The Untitled Project outdoors on public advertising displays. The exhibit is up during the month of September.
Now that my website is easier to use and update, thanks to the talented Ian Whitmore, I will probably be updating this page more often in the future.
