So because I am not on the web enough at every moment of the day, I started a tumblr for the blog. ;) All kidding aside though, I opened a tumblr to deposit all the Iphone pics I take on my merry way around the city (and elsewhere). There is a lot to see always and I wanted a mobile way to deposit and capture those things. So what you'll find on the tumblr are shots you won't see of installs or art shows on the blog, different views of said installs and art shows, street art I like, and anything else I find to be beautiful, special or as this world can often be, totally nuts. You can follow the tumblr if you have an account, or just check it out when you want. ;)
Seth Neefus & Mark Warren Jacques traveling project, Free Life Center has been moving all over the States and parts of Canada it's made its final stop here in San Francisco at Needles + Pens. I took a bunch of pics this week of the darling and woodsy structure, I'd move in there if I could. It will be residing at N+P til August 31st, stop if you can. You can see an interview with Seth and Mark here along with a video of the build out at Gallery Hijinks last month here.

My friend Caleb Neelon tipped me off to Luke O'Sullivan's 3-d works. His "alternate cartoon/ flatland" world is pretty neat. Plus he was born in the same part of Boston (Jamaica Plain) that I was...so that's awesome off the bat. ;) I asked Luke to talk to me about his wooden, silk screened sculptures:
"I have been obsessed with drawing buildings for a long time, it started when I was kid, and in some ways I'm still making very similar drawings, but now I play with power tools, because I can. And so [they are] 3-d! But seriously...I've been floating between making miniature worlds and making props from those worlds on a life-size scale. All of my 3-d work is a departure from a landscape print series i began in 2003. At some point drawing and etching on a flat surface felt a bit stale, I really wanted to be working more with my hands, building the cities and arranging them in space."
