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.
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.
