Feel free to give me a ring, anytime! In the mean time check out a couple recent projects below:
THE CUT-OFF MEN
The Cut-Off Men are a group of nine players that each share a similar love for the game of baseball but whose baseball careers have each been cut short for various reasons. On June 12th, 2012 they came together as a team an gave their big league dreams one last shot. Read more here.
THE HAMMER YEARBOOK
The Hammer Yearbook was a year long investigation of the inner workings of the Hammer museum – the visitors that came through it, the artists that provided the motivation to come in the first place, and the staff that made it all possible – through the lens of a school yearbook. With regular visits to the museum, UCLA students acted as the Yearbook Staff and created the texts and documentation for the publication over the course of the 2011-12 academic year. The yearbook was published in June 2012. Visit the Hammer Yearbook online to see all the visitor photos or purchase a hardcopy here. Collaboration with Harrell Fletcher.
Diana Budde invited me to do a one-week residency at the University of Wisconsin Marathon County during the Spring semester of 2012. When Diana asked me what I wanted to do with her classes I wasn't really sure, but I thought it might be nice to have class outside the art building so I asked her to find a family that lived within walking distance of the campus.
During the week I was there we held Drawing, Photography, and Creative Writing classes in the home of Shannon and Amy Bird. After a tour of their home each student in the drawing class used blue painter's tape to tag 10 things they considered valuable or significant. After the first class there were about 250 things in the house that had value. Each class that followed worked from the objects that had been tagged and together we came up with a selection of things we would use to tell their story. The exhibition included things like Shannon's gun collection, an excerpt from Amy's recently published historic romance, a marshmallow tugboat, and Iron Man.
