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.

narcissus

my ucla film school senior thesis. (well, i did go to ucla anyway. but this is just me trying to extract the tiniest sliver of joy from a miserable situation.) i ask only for six seconds of your time. i really like the sound the jar makes as it leaves my hand.

rule of acquisition #7

rewatching deep space nine and decided to take a stab at the trumpet theme. standard disclaimers apply: i haven't played my trumpet regularly in 28 years, soooo you get what you pay for (plus, i recorded it a little hot, since i still don't really know how to use my dr-05 properly, meh).

for +Max Rubenacker +Terry McNeil  +Drew McCarthy +Charlie Hoover +Shinae Choi Robinson +Daniella Arianne  +Zac Lowing  and any other trek geeks in my circles.

one more audio bit for the evening, a damped harmonic oscillator in the form of a ceramic plate balanced on the ridge between basins of a ceramic sink. headphones recommended. image is of the wave form, which i particularly liked.

steve-o, that is correct. the divider is about two inches wide with about one inch in the middle that's flat and a half inch that rounds down on either side. so that and the weight and dimensions of the plate work just right together. glad you like.

"driven to the edge of a deep, dark hole"

took the paved path (highest in north america) to mt evans today. impressive native flora (which require a bit of genuflection to appreciate, as they grow mostly close to the ground and have subtle (at first glance) colors). the road stops at 14,130. a quick scramble by foot gets you to 14,265. the germans and austrians were out in full force, kein wunder.
