So I went rogue in Alaska and never quite came back to stationary life.
I'm going back out with a vengeance, and will be traveling for most of this year. If I'm feeling particularly ambitious, I might redo my website before then because it currently gives the mistaken impression that I'm predominantly a painter. Ha. I've been following some weird rabbit holes of late, and they seem to be perfomative genre-mashups that are difficult to explain. Here's a sampling of recent projects:
-Balancing books on my head with Eric Olson for Microsoft Research's Gigapixel Art Zoom Project
-Giving an educationally informative performance about bike touring, nutella, gangsta rap, and George Michael in Gotta Have Faith: The Single Lady's Guide to Solo Long Distance Bike Travel at Weird and Awesome
-Getting my mind blown by various On the Boards
shows and then and writing/performing responses. Here's the first one I did on my own
, and then here are collaborative responses with Eric Olson in which we did such things as play ping pong
, play paper telephone about Checkov
, and and talk about our deepest relationship insecurities while playing twister
(apparently we like to respond to performance art through playing games?), and I made a paper doll of Eric and brought it with me to the performance when he was out of town
-Being interviewed by Obey
-Staging a geurilla Bingo game
with Whitney Ford-Terry and Laura Elizabeth Becker at John Boylan's conversation series
-Taking a video crew on a field trip to the Zoo for an interview with Manifest NW
-Collecting hair ties for six months for What We Make When We're Not Making: An Exploration of Downtime in the Creative Process... As Explained by Hairties
, an illustrated performance at the Breadline Speaker Series
....and a whole lot more.
So... Yeah. Still painting, but not so much just a painter these days. And yes I am still working on my graphic novel about Antarctica.
But it's going to take me at least a few years, so I have no physical progress to show yet, just a lot of research reading.
If you'd like to stay in the loop about upcoming projects become my fan on facebook
or shoot me an email
so I can add you to my mailing list.
