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!

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.

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
