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.

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

Sad Clown (Do Not Eat)

This assemblage I made for 2012 Artomatic has finally lost its tiny burned head. I will repair if anyone is imminently interested in it (comment at my Instagram), otherwise will stripmine for parts.

get lost in the harbor!

The Governors Island Art Fair opened 9/2/17 & can be visited every weekend in September (11-6, free). Take the ferry from Brooklyn or lower Manhattan. Explore weird and wonderful full-room installations creatively wriggled into old peeling rowhouses. There are also some outdoor sculptures...

Modeling the Liberty Memorial - In Process

I traveled to Kansas City a few weeks ago.  I was very interested to image a monument in that city; the Liberty Memorial that is the focal point of the National World War I Museum and Memorial.  I've visited Kansas City a few times and have always been drawn by the simple elegance of the structure and the striking effect the monument has on the landscape as well as the psyche of the viewer.

DC Arts Center - Wallmountables

A few of my things are in another open (unjuried) show -- currently on display Wed-Sun, 2-7 p.m. (plus anytime there's a performance on) at the DC Arts Center, 2438 18th St. NW (upstairs). Through September...10th, I think? (Adams Morgan Day?)

(That's my thing on the right. "Ways to Be Angry #2")

July: Wet Specimen

Me (djh), I'm trying not to bake in the underinsulated Aerie, trying to write a(nother!) book. I've been walking around my city finding tiny dead things. I haven't been looking for dead things on purpose; it's just a season of tiny murders, tiny calamities. What's everyone else up to?

Status Check - Bxiie

Hello!  I'm not dead, just quiet.

It's now spring in Vermont.  I've come out of relative art hibernation and it's time to get ready for the sculpture festival season!

never be empty inside

DH2 are pleased to report that we have sold a few things. Artomatic 2017 is ongoing, through May 6th (logistical details in prior blog posts), but the following items will now be observed to sport little red dots. It's not a rash! We thank our beloved patrons!

(Top to bottom: "Empty Inside," "The Galaxy of Rusty Tools," and "The Weight of Perfectionism," all digital prints on aluminum by Dan X Herr. "Now she knows she'll never be afraid," found-object assemblage with tulle and rust, by Dorothy J. Hickson)

DH2 in the [abandoned office building]...

Artomatic 2017 is in the planning stages! We will be back in Crystal City, right across from the metro, March 24 through May 6.

It's a weird disused office space now, but soon it will be preposterously transformed... Come and see!

I wrote this thing. It was therapeutic to write. I feel super weird about promoting it. Click here (trigger warnings: sexual assault; incipient regime).

I did not know anything about getting webzine-published; it was already live before I asked about non-stock photographs. I would probably have used this one? Which may explain why I am not editor of a webzine.
