Bxiie - Points of Contention Prototype

Last weekend I participated in a 'regional burn', a Burning Man-related event called Playa del Fuego held in Pennsylvania.  I assembled a prototype of a new work, Points of Contention.


The piece is constructed of 360 2x2x48 pieces of wood, fifteen metal tubes, and a few willow and birch branches.


With the help of my build crew (including EFAC Filth) I constructed the piece on Friday.  On Sunday, the piece was burned in front of several hundred assembled participants.  It burned beautifully.




The wooden spars for this work were milled on a CNC router.  This is a new tool for me but one that has already had a big impact on my work.  Here's a link to a video of me preparing the spars for this work.

That was my first show for this year.  I have a few other shows lined up already and a couple of other possibilities in the works.  I'll be showing at...

- Sculpturefest, Woodstock, Vermont - Opens June 30
- North Bennington Outdoor Sculpture Show, North Bennington, Vermont - Opens July 7
- LandARTlab, Woodstock, Vermont - Opens August 24

Each of these three shows will feature different largish outdoor works.

Back to the workshop!

Off Season, On?

I haven't been making art. It's been winter, and there were Things To Do. Starting to get that itch, though. Equinoctal urges?

Witness



Filthyhippie and I (Bxiie) have created a multimedia installation under the auspices of EFAC.  The piece is called Witness and explores the subjective nature of narrative and experience.


The piece incorporates technology and nature; not a big departure from the tools and materials I bring to my solo work.  The piece started out as something that Filth was creating on his own.  I provided some support work that sort of expanded into a full collaboration.  Not that I pushed myself into Filth's piece...  As things went along, it just became clear to both of us that this was a collaborative work.
   

We're showing it this weekend at a popup art show in Washington, DC.  I'm also bringing two other things; one half of a Swirl for the front yard and a smallish PVC/chicken wire thing called Vinylhenge.


I'm really pleased with the way this piece has turned out.  Once the new year hits, I'm going to start looking for a place to exhibit this in the northeast...  I'll certainly let you know when and where you can witness Witness.

I Shaved My Leg.

Far from the most interesting thing that EFAC members have been up to recently, but it is a thing I am personally qualified / cleared to share...

Notre November Writing Month

DJH is in the Aerie; 50,000 new words by December?! But there aren't any new words. And these are the only letters I have to work with? Even the "Q" is trite. #amwriting #unpossible #cromulent
