A link to some information on the Many Mini Residency I did recently in Houston.

This is a piece that was shown recently at Red Space Gallery. This piece is made up of hundreds or pieces of kids artwork that has been given to make over the past year and a half that I have been doing youth out reach to under-served communities. The drawings and sculptures were cute up and re-worked to form a landscape. This piece is both a loving nod to the children that I have worked with and a comment on the way in which these children will shape the world that we live in.

I believe that in my lifetime we will see a dramatic shift in the way we live. Some people talk about apocalypse or something similar, but I see it more as an end of the world as the way we understand it now. I, of course, also believe that I will be able to survive it. I suppose that many people think this also, since there is quite a bit of complacency in the face of so much evidence.
Over the period of about the last year, I have been learning basic survival techniques in order to archive these processes for future me.
I have also been learning to use resources that constitute the new natural. Resources that can be found in an abundance and seem to be constantly renewing themselves.
