Repost from last week when I got to have a conversation with students from the Rocky Mountain School of Art and Design @vasdprogram about "Life Practice" on my public works at the GSA campus in Denver. Such a great visit – and the first time I've visited the Planar Pavilions since they were finished. (These works were the first of the planar inspired pieces that I'm making now)
Parallel Planar Configurations and Personal Panels at the Site Santa Fe opening last night
"Dopamine Regression" – an insanely intricate weaving that deconstructs traditional Germantown weaving designs and has motifs relating to the artist's response to her father's Parkinson's disease – by Melissa Cody.
A little hard to photograph through plexi, but saw some really wonderful weavings at the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts today. This beauty by Marlowe Katoney.
Beautiful solitary drive from Denver to Santa Fe yesterday…
Hey all you desert dwellers (I know there are a lot of you out there)! Our eleventh biennial HDTS event is happening over the weekend of October 21-22 and we are in need of additional housing for our artists and speakers. Do you have an airbnb or an extra room in your house that you would like to donate? If so contact us this week at firstname.lastname@example.org – thank you!
One day at home one I'm off again… giving a talk in Denver tonight for @vasdprogram
Flight delays giving me time to dip into this. For anyone interested in issues surrounding gentrification, the chapter "the Real Estate Show" is a great read.
Lava tubes made when molten lava poured around trees 20,000 years ago. At the base of the hole is a tunnel just big enough to crawl through that was made when lava poured around two felled trees.
