Bxiie goes on about something

On Wednesday, May 5, I (which is to say, me, Bxiie) will be giving an online presentation about my art practice and specifically about the design and installation of Isolation, a large piece that I produced last year and installed in Jamestown, Rhode Island.  The arts group that arranged last year's show (Jamestown Arts Center) has asked me to speak.  I will discuss my work for about 30 minutes and then answer questions for about 30 minutes.  The stream starts at 7:30 pm east-coast time.

If you are interested, you should RSVP in advance.

VDF is a FREE sanctioned Burning Man Regional (except... the "region" is anywhere you can log into a free Jitsi link) with a Burner-built website... You can see and share all sorts of things: interactive art, dance parties, workshops, games, dramatic reenactments of events from burns past, virtual tours of "Portapotties of the Rich and Famous"... 

And there are ART GRANTS -- yeah, even though it's a free online event that you don't need tickets to join.

Daniel the Dark, First of His Name, Liege-Lord of the Weirdlands...

What's everyone else been doing while sheltering-in-place? We might have watched a few episodes of "Knightfall"... and then a lot of other TV while not looking at the screen the whole time.

Dan also created a device for winding steel wire into a spiral so he could then snip it into identical links. This chainmail coif is composed of approximately 5,500 links, made from ~ 450 feet of wire.
