shot by Yung during the opening at Wayfarers. It’s always interesting to see your work and studio through someone else’s eyes… Go to his Flickr page to see all his shots from the opening.

Playing Catch Up

April 22, 2011

Been spending my first week in Virginia catching up on all the work I neglected for… well, the last month really. I barely managed to squeeze in time to photograph all of my new work before packing it (or throwing it away) but didn’t have time to edit or post any of the new photos. The first half of the week was spent adding several new pages worth of work to my website and now I’m set up to do the physical prep work of building fabric armatures before the residency begins in just over a week. I took a few shots of the new 3D sketches, but I’d like to share a little last minute experiment I conducted before leaving Vermont. This experimental photo shoot was completed at the recommendation of visiting artist Phoebe Adams and I had a great time doing it. Due to packing and moving, I only had a few hours to play around with this, but it was super fun and I’m sure will influence future work. I would love to do it again with better lighting, but a lot of the pieces included in this were thrown away or taken to storage so they won’t be accessible again for a while…

Science is Fiction remix 1

basically took all the elements from the show and remixed them

into these bizarre alternative tableaus...

here's a second remix

I would love to do this again with better lighting

except that at least half this work doesn't exist anymore and the other half is in storage...

Week 46 of 48 (11 Months!)

December 21, 2010

Not enough time to write a real entry! Juggling way too much at the moment so here’s a few miscellaneous things from the last couple weeks. To complete the final layer of paint on Belinda, I had to setup a make-shift spray booth in an empty studio since we have been buried in snow for what feels like weeks already and there isn’t a spray booth on campus (so annoying!). Then this past weekend, I setup a photo studio to photograph Dura Mater, the suit of armor, in its final form. Thank god for empty studios… Those images will go direct to the new website, which is almost done! Hopefully it will be live within the next week or two… More news to come soon…

Week 39 of 48

November 1, 2010

I finally gave in and set up a proper poor man’s photo studio in an empty studio across the hall. It’s far from perfect, but after several rounds of experimenting with both the lighting and my camera’s settings, I managed a few rounds of decent photos. I’m also in a building where it’s impossible to have total control of the lighting so despite taking all the flourescent tubes out of the ceiling lights, there is still some bleed from other studios’ lighting. At the very least, I learned a lot more about how to use my camera, so that was exciting. I’m also in phase 1 of the website refresh so all the new photos will show up there whenever I launch the updated site. Here are some of the better rejects from the photo shoot:
