I like this a lot. It seems very close, physically, to what I was doing a year ago. I still have a soft spot for this type of work. When I made it, it posed questions that I couldn't answer. It also abstracted my ideas too much. I wouldn't know how to get my thinking back to something like that and stay in the context of art. I need more training as a designer. Maybe I got into the wrong business. Currently, I make things people climb on and don't get paid. I could make things people climb on with federally imposed safety regulations and getting paid.

Wow... Tom Moody (of Tom Moody fame) has been doing a bang-up job as guest reblogger over at Eyebeam reBlog during the past couple of days. I wish he would do this all the time. He's the best guest I've seen over there. It looks super time consuming.
... p.s. I hope Artexpo Atlanta this weekend will prove better than a local craft show, which I fear it might be. Luckily, Saltworks and The Contemp are new.

Sacks on Stewart

Staying up late at night has its advantages. I get to see Martha Stewart's Living in the middle of the night. One segment today surprised me. Everyone's favorite neurologists, Oliver Sacks, visited to talk about cycads. This happens to be one of the best things ever. The author of books that I've actually read such as: The Man who Mistook his Wife for a Hat (1985) and An Anthropologist on Mars (1995), on Martha Stewart talking about plants. Who knew. It's like the time when I found a t-shirt that combined my love of math and juggling with a display of Shannon's Juggling Theorem, except I cant really wear a tv show (or can I?).

So, here's a little clip from the intro segment I made last night for my portfolio dvd. I'm thinking about selling copies of it. Not for very much. But enough to keep me wanting to do it. I figure it's a good option to get my work out, or at least drum up some interest. What would you pay for it? $5, $8? What do you think? Leave a comment.
