englishflag.gif  I’ve been quite preoccupied with wrapping up the administration of the department for the academic year and preparing to travel to England on a trip with fourteen of my students and my colleagues Dr. Marja Mogk and Stephanie Shaker. 

I expect the blog to take on a distinctly different flavor for a while, because instead of working in the studio I will be looking for source material, dreaming and exploring mystical and unusual places that appear to act as bridges between the mundane and extraordinary worlds. We’ll go to Avebury, Bath, Glastonbury tor, Dartmoor, Tintagel, Penzance and Stonehenge, to name only a few.

My camera and laptop are my constant companions. You are invited to come with us via the computer screen…

 

England

That’s it. The bottles have been packed away for their next incarnation, which I hope will be in the show at the Brand gallery next year. I ran into Alyssa last week and asked her about the tree in the courtyard there, she said that she would ask the grounds people not to trim it this year so there will be a nice full canopy.

Here my helpers Gillian and Sheena take a break after cutting down the bottles from the oak. It was far easier to get it all down than it was to put it up.

No trees were harmed in the making of this artwork…
