Say cheese

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.
