    Seattle day Six, The Bumbershoot Piece…fin!

    I managed to finish the Bumbershoot piece within about 45 minutes of the scheduled press preview today, which had been a personal goal. I am content with the way the form turned out as it seems to have elements of the eternal return piece from January, some parts of the Los Cabos piece and the interior exterior flow of the sticks element from Sticks, Straws, Sleeves and Lids also in January

     
     

    Seattle Day Five

    Here are five images that describe day five.

    Since the Bumbershoot production folks install tracks wherever you ask, for the first time in a couple of shows I will really get to play with light and shadow across the space as most natural light has been blocked from the space.

    When you’ ve got signage you’ve got Read more...

     
     

    Seattle day four

    While working today I gave some thought to what it means to be making work in the Seattle Center. I thought a bit about it’s history as a worlds fair site and the tremendous spectacle that was involved in that. I really warmed up to the idea of doing my artistic magic trick in the place that was built to show the best ideas of the future, including the monorail I have been riding back to the hotel each night. Also the more the other visual arts shows begin to take shape the more I feel we are all doing our part to reflect the spirit and context of the Seattle Center in an interesting way.

     
     

    Seattle day 3

    The bumbershoot piece is shaping up nicely with only three and a half days left to work I think I may actually get through this in one piece.

     
     

    Seattle day two

    Jet lag be gone. I managed to get the general foot print of the Bumbershoot piece in place and now I just need to keep on trucking. I am hoping to finish most of the ladder work by tomorrow night, and begin integrating more of the woven panels for the lower part of the structure.

     
     

    McColl Day one and then came Bumbershoot day one

    Charlotte Day one, was devoted to getting a layout set and blocking things in place so I can just focus on making the work when I return next week
    with my game plan in front of me I was able to set the scene for what is to come.

    Of course I couldn’t miss another opportunity to Read more...

     
     

    Cross Country Weaving, back tracking, then stacking and weaving

    An old crate packed with 4 framed prints, 1000 coffee cup lids, some sleeves and odds an ends. on top of the crate is a box with the sleeves from Sticks Straws Sleeves and Lids, my show that was in January, re-stacked in sections to be assembled next week at the McColl.
