This has been a fun experiment, but it feels like time to switch things up a little. From here on posting will move to a new address.

Advertising on advertising

Say cheese

September 14, 2008

The fabrication for the work Reclamation was a bit complicated and involved many discussions with the Fearless Installation Wizard, Ron Bernstein. Ron works as Coordinator Materials at the Jan Van Eyck Academie and is an artist also. Ron was amazingly generous with his time and experience in the many stages of producing the work, for which I’m very grateful. As he demonstrates in the above image, sometimes you just have to make a sketch with materials at hand.

Long time no blog

Long time no blog, because of this.

Amazingly, I still remember the login, so here we go again.

Super fun

I worked on the design and layout for this ad with Richard Woods, which just ran as a full page in Frieze. The exhibition is at Milton Keynes Gallery, full info here.

This modification to a sign is something of a landmark on Nevada’s I-95.

Brooklyn melons

June 28, 2008

I was in Brooklyn recently doing some preliminary work on a commission for the Brooklyn Historical Society. Here are some fruits of wanderings deep in the borough, including a real and counterfeit $10 bill, and (the last image) the dilapidated-but-charmtastic Avenue Q subway stop.

The dream imagined

June 26, 2008

Sign for the still-in-progress residential development of Goldewijk, in Almere, The Netherlands. The tagline is indeed: The Dream Imagined.

Below, two dwellings from Goldewijk. I’m impressed to see that the Dutch have so fully embraced postmodernism in their quasi-suburbia; these two piles are just down the street from one another, practically neighbors.

And the band played on

With that foot wedged up in there, resisting the drum kit’s urge to crowdsurf.

Work it girl, liven up that public sculpture

May 11, 2008

Public sculpture with interpretive dance by Raquel Welch and some spacemen. The site is the Ruta de la Amistad sculpture project from the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City. Watch the clip here.
