But I have managed to try out some new things, proven and written off a few ideas. I hope the next month can prove as valuable.

The main disappointment is that so many people will not be able to see the work. Experience the installation. I knew I was taking a risk... But to have it be over so quickly. Dang.
I've been asked to send out a second wave. And today I went and packed up this little group in the hopes they fare better.

So a few weekends ago I went to the cape split trail and installed some sculpture as part of Uncommon Common Art, an outdoor art event from June to October.
This installation has been very exciting to put together. One of the best parts is that the installation is collaborative, the way I left it is not the way it will remain. I've ensured this by placing small tactile objects unsecured into the landscape. I haven't encouraged my audience, but they've certainly been playing along.
I hope that when I go back to collect the work in October there will be some work to collect. These are all fresh new pieces that I'm very excited about, but if they fall victim to nature, weather or people... I'm prepared.
Trusting the world to take care of these little beauties is hard, but the engagement with the audience in this situation is much more visceral than a traditional gallery setting.

This spring, late though it was has been quite fruitful so far. A summer residency at Medalta has been secured, an outdoor showing of my work is lined up, and I even got my name in on a garden plot! Good things all round.

This winter has been hard. Late and frequent snowstorms, ice upon ice upon ice. And a cabin fever I have never experienced. I hadn't really made anything since the fall.
