Before

 

currents prepSetting up for opening on Friday, June 13th. Install turns out to be complicated by the fact that we purchased local bricks for the frame – and the best ones were different dimensions than the ones we left in Minnesota.  This changed the shape of the rectangle, which meant scaling the masking, which meant scaling the image placeholders, etc.. A nightmare really.

But better than burning all that fuel climbing from St. Paul (elevation 702 ft)

 

SleepCycle Version 1.0 Up

skinpillowsSleepCycle Version 1.0 is running (from January 3, 2014 until January 19,2014) at the 410 Project, 523 South Front St., Mankato, MN.

SleepCycle is a collaboration between myself and Mika Laidlaw. Seven slip-cast porcelain pillow sleep in the center of the floor on a bed of sparkling black sand. Each pillow’s skin texture slowly progress from youth to age.

Quietness is punctuated by occasional dreams that overtake one of the pillows. If there is no movement in the gallery for a few seconds, the whole set moves into a unified dream state, displaying pieces of an larger image.
