Filth & I had been talking about learning to weld, and the notion continued to smolder in me... then I happened upon the course listings for The Art League (at the Torpedo Factory), and now I am going to learn how to weld. (Details to follow!)
Also, I got in my application for the DC Arts Center's Sparkplug Collective. I started to type, "so I'm waiting to hear," but I'm not waiting. I've decided to behave as if I am in. Deadlines and shared projects energize me, so I am tapping into that energy as much as I can. Getting my atelier/aerie more organized in the direction of making more art. And making more art.

DC Arts Center is holding its annual Wallmountables right now -- it's like a tiny Artomatic, all in one room! -- and you no longer need an appointment to visit (though I think you do need a mask).
Wed-Sun. 2-7 pm
through August 22nd
My stuff is on the front wall. "I'm Not Trying To Move You."

As long as I have to work the graveyard shift in this place, you may as well get a tour. Come see the nonrecyclable monstrosity the authorities have wisely quarantined in this isolation tent. Hairnets provided upon request.

We built, and burned the thing, and it was sparkly.

Virtual Del Fuego 2.0 is happening at the end of this month: May 28-31, 2021. Some of the things that I am doing:
- exploring my inner drag king
- building and burning a semi-pony effigy thing
- making a secret metal sculpture to hide inside the thing we are going to burn
I've also been making a ridiculous twisted plastic thing... the Utopia Monster... which i envision housing in a biohazard containment tent during the event. There will be tours, and opportunities to leave your own messages (PAPER OR PLASTIC?), and hopefully a discussion about our various eco-anxieties, hopes, furies, ideas and suggestions...? If not, it may just be me ranting on-camera by myself. That, too, is cathartic.
virtual.playadelfuego.org is where events will unfold!

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.
