EXHIBITIONIST!!!

the time has arrived. as i type and you read, folks are gathering in albuquerque at the +Gallery at Yucca Flats to view art, including my art. i was invited to join eleven other artists by +Scott Krichau for 12x12x12. scott sent each of us a nice finished plywood panel to do with as we pleased. since i'm not exactly a "painter" i decided my panel would involve sculpture. upon receipt i quickly decided that the panel itself would become the sculpure. the experimental bits and pieces i've been doing and posting were to figure out exactly what i was going to do with this panel (measure/design a million times, cut once--nicht wahr?!). so here's my contribution. hope you like it. here are shots of all the pieces in the show, as hung and shot by scott.

ghost in the machine

There is no political solution
To our troubled evolution
Have no faith in constitution
There is no bloody revolution

We are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world

Our so-called leaders speak
With words they try to jail you
The subjugate the meek
But it's the rhetoric of failure
We are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world

Where does the answer lie?
Living from day to day
If it's something we can't buy
There must be another way

We are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world
Are spirits in the material world

and the lines on the map
moved from side to side

apparently the big corporate serpent i'm riding was just consumed by a larger corporate serpent. i wish it meant something cool like getting laid off with a sweet severance. instead i just get to go from sounding like i work for the chinese mafia (triad isotopes) to sounding like i'm now singing with up with people (jubilant life). yay. i still go to work at 1am and still get paid shit, so um yeah (eventually i'll get a few new logo polo shirts, joy).
