New Installation Page on Site

We've just added a new section to my website with information about the art installations I've begun making in the last year and a half. My first work of public art, 60.30.1 (pictured above in a photo by Matt Stacey), was set at 11 sites on Harvard University's campus in December 2008. In the summer of 2009, I took a great installation course from Felipe Dulzaides at San Francisco Art Institute and further explored this avenue of work. I see it as an interesting way to develop and present my ideas about the intersections between cultures, histories, and time.

Video and Pie in a Laundromat

My other upcoming show is an installation of my video 25th and Mission in the laundromat where it was partially filmed: 25th Street Dry Cleaners, 3416 25th Street (at Mission), San Francisco. The show will be up August 4-10, with an opening reception Wednesday, August 5, 5-7pm (when else can you have wine and cheese and Mission Pie pie in a laundromat)?

The piece looks abstractly at what the four delightfully diverse shops on this block have in common: namely, a rootedness in their community and the work of transforming and beautifying surfaces.
