feeling golden

what is your feeling on the state of humanity?

gold = positive and hopeful

teal = neutral and things are as they are

black = concerned and negative

as expected, had a golden time collaborating with the people of ottawa

the black marks were emphatic but the gold won the night

sending many heARTs to my many collaborators

it is a joy to create with you and the reason i am one thumb gold

the other is black until more of our energy is spent this way

my thanks to the museum of nature for the great event

next month i may come dance!


nature nocturne

tonight is the night

party at the dinosaur museum!!!

another collaboration in the works


Museum of Nature

january twenty-fifth 8pm – midnight

the intention of this project is to allow the night shape a collaborative inter-active piece in celebration of connectedness, both within ourselves and with those among us.

the museum of nature is an ideal setting to have individuals consider the state of human nature and contribute their creative energy to a painting made up of three different colours of thumbprint. a large canvas is prepared with twenty-three strips of fine paper. attendees will be encouraged to choose one of three colours: gold, teal, or black to make their mark. the colours are attached to the following sentiments; gold for a positive hopeful view, teal for a neutral laissez-faire attitude, and black for those with less hope. the image will reveal a temperature of sorts. the mood of the group at the event.

the transfer of the collective creativity energy should be interesting at least, beautiful at best.

hope to see you there

colours of Kahlo

this makes total sense to me. you?

Kahlo’s emotional frankness, bravery, and strength are long time inspirations

and their story together is endlessly fascinating

…also made me long for the food of Puebla

i am inviting frida and diego to my fantasy dinner party

and will get them to bring the mole

thank you toronto for the dose of urbanity


if you are in LA tonight


art for a good cause

p.s. my camera is broken

fresh start

the garbage shed is gone

vanished from my life

as gone as 2012

goodbye shed

i only noticed this morning

i am a little upset

but i am taking it as a sign

…a fresh start in 2013

(and a reminder to finally frame the shed series)

wishing you, dear shed

and all

the very best in the new year!
