“Intelligence”: Image Blast!

Wow. I’ve got less than two weeks until install and I feel like I’m in a good place with the timing of it all. I’m going to tease you with photos! You know those stickers I’ve been handing out? You can see them implanted into this cut that I did. They are the security eyeball […]

“Intelligence”: Vinyl Cutter Open for Business

…sort of. I’ll be willing to cut stuff for you after my art show. I just wanted to show you my new toy. Well, mine and Ryder’s. We’re sharing the cost because damn, a 53″ vinyl cutter is not cheap. Why do I have a vinyl cutter? It’s for a nearly invisible set of art […]

“Intelligence”: Another Privacy Related Art Show!

Hey all! I’ve been hibernating! But I’m back just in time for the COLD WEATHER! I would never survive in the wild. Still, I’m here gearing up for my next privacy/data collection-related art show opening in February! I got a solo show dumped in my lap about a month ago. It sat there for awhile, […]

Ok. I’m… actually trying to rein in the sweets now. Trying and failing. I tell myself that I can only have one sweet per day and somehow I keep breaking my rule. My newly acquired dancer body is taking a hit, even with the dancing and all the walking and bike riding I do around […]

Furaidochikin Crossing: Marugame Uchiwa

My trip to Marugame was exciting to say the least. I’ve been anxious to go here for months, ever since I discovered the place on google maps after doing some deep research. The art residency I will be attending, Studio Kura, was chosen for its proximity to Marugame even though it’s still a good 4 […]

Furaidochikin Crossing: Return to Onishi

I’m dealing with that jet lag thing again. Keep waking up at about 3am. Last night I faded fast at 9pm, sitting among friends after an insane meal and a single glass of wine. As I begin to compose this post, I am in the middle of my one night stay in Onishi which, due […]
