    Field of Good Fortune, now very fortunate.

    Last night I was very honored to attend a public art funding face off in Columbia SC. My modest proposal was one of three finalist asked to defend our idea and the feasibility of it. At the end of the evening, after a brief deliberation, my project was announced as the winner. I am excited to say that this is one of those ideas I have had kicking around for a bit with no definite outlet and when this call from the Columbia Design league went out I saw an ideal site within the main street corridor of Columbia

     
     

    McColl Installation: Fin

    So the Have Sticks Will Travel Finale is now installed at The McColl Center and will remain on view through January 8 2011, I will remain in residence here through Mid November. I can’t say that I feel any particular sense of relief as I just got word that I am one of three finalist for a small temporary outdoor public art project which may mean that at some point in early-mid 2011 I will get to see my field of good fortune installation realized.

     
     

    McColl Day 7

    I am starting to round some physical and metaphorical corners with this piece and hope to finish with the work by Friday so I can document before the weekend.

     
     

    McColl Day 6

    Today was the beginning of some of the structural resolution which should leave me only 2 or 3 more days of work. Today was also the first official day as an artist in residence at the McColl Center but I can’t put on my residents hat until i take off my install mode hat.best part about lower sections, the switch from ladder work to chair work, I call this the casual weaver.

     
     

    McColl Day 5

    I suppose in honor of Labor day I have chosen to continue working on the installation. Although I did visit the 24hour french bakery/coffee shop here in Charlotte today, which is kind of like celebrating organized labor. That doesn’t make any sense I am going to stop laboring now until tomorrow morning in honor of exhaustion.

     
     

    McColl Day 4

    Today was pretty straightforward, I secured the structure a little more and finished my title wall. Tomorrow I can make some headway on the rest of the stick piece.

     
     

    Mccoll day 3

    Today a visitor in the gallery asked me if I was the artist for this work, and I told her no just the guy who makes it.there is something very meta about documenting work in the gallery with video made from previous documentation of work in galleries running in the background.

     
     

    McColl Day two

    Since this is going to be the end of the “tour” I am going to great lengths to include as many of things as possible, artwise, that were acquired during the tour. On the wall in the background is the stencil from the show at 18rabbit gallery back in march. This will serve as a sort of title wall within once room of the installation.
