Had a great show in Seville. It was quick and dirty! I only had three weeks in the AIRgentum Residency but I came prepared with the work I wanted to make. Martina pulled several strings to make the show happen and my lovely residency mates helped me install the show with literally only 45 minutes. It was intimate with 18 locals attending including my sweet friend that I met at the residency in Japan, Raquel. The gallery attenders had lovely questions and comments, and in the end, I feel very thankful for the experience.
A VERY special thanks to Michael O’Hanlon for taking the photos of the event.

A closeup of Floral Listening Device for Hair. I didn’t get to tell you about these before. I made bamboo structures for these lily-type flowers and covered them in red washi paper. Coming from the pointed end is a coiled earpiece that you usually see security guards wear. These were fashioned after the old timey ear trumpets made to help people hear better. The idea is that you could wear one in your hair without calling attention to yourself while listening in on private conversations. Prototype.

This is a meta picture that Michael O’Hanlon took of Maria Kim taking a picture of Raquel and I. Maria was being funny and snapping pics as she got closer and closer to Raquel and I, eventually making us truly laugh.
Gracias Martina, estoy muy agradecido,
