flagstaff pop up show (03.02.12)
step helped me install work for a pop show in flagstaff last night. it was the most fun i've had doing an indoor show installation. much of what i worked on were found objects including the functioning tv (that became a dog which showed "koyaanisqatsi" in the show window of the store), the stairs (on which i got to try my first lenticular) and the chest of drawers (which became the lamb + kid bed stand).
i used the show as an opportunity to talk about and attempt to fund raise for a project i'm working on called "the painted desert" which seeks to bring street artists whose work i love to the rez to paint murals and to teach mural making workshops to youth. the response from the vendors and the artists contacted have all been positive. so stay tuned for the painted desert.
