it’s with my face
I spent 3 weeks in Detroit in May (2016) at Spread Art. While there I moved in two directions, mostly. The first was that of engaging in acts of exploration – walking, occasionally by bike, later by car and sometimes with people. This is Spread:
The second direction was towards drawing. I spent my time in my studio working on large drawings and my evenings, when I struggled to sleep, making small doodling and meditative drawings. Here are two examples:

Update: We have started filming the pilot episode – more info to come!!!
June 16 – July 6, 2015, Roscoe, New York
I created and participated in a number of performances and performance experiments. I am gathering documentation as I go.
Here is the second performance I did as a response to a peer’s first performance at the residency. I wrote and read something I wrote in response to the prior performance and presented an activity to symbolize change and forward motion. People were invited to put on either a wedding dress or a giant blue jumpsuit and dive down a water slide (it was fun).
And, I have a few pictures from the last performance I did.
Story Telling Machine
My story telling was powered by the physical activity of others. It was an experiment and the first enactment of a project I will continue to build on.
I’ll add more as I can.
I don’t think I ever added this to my website. Last summer when Dreamland (Artist Erica Thomas and myself) where curated and enacted a series of events at the temporary gallery space of Weird Shift. We were interviewed by Daniel Flessus on KBOO – so, here is the interview, officially added.
I’m going on a residency this summer – June 16 – July 6th. I need some help – check out the Indiegogo link and watch my video yo.
