The Nest Project installation 4/9/2011. This was a fun collaboration I did with my bud Heather Schmaedeke in the very cold water of the Potomac river. It was part of a fundraiser for the Habitat for Humanity at the Torpedo Factory.
I curated an invitational art show “The Art of Political Change” in Sept 2013 at MOCA DC in Georgetown Washington DC. It has its own website atwww.UnionOfConcernedArtists.com. Check it out. Below if a video I put together of some of its amazing art, artists and my friends. As an interesting note political art is in DC is not so popular. Many of my friends have made political art and were excited for the opportunity to show it.
Below is a video of a kinetic sculpture “When does life begin” I made for a fundraiser at the Target gallery in the Torpedo factory in Alexandria Virginia. I had just taken a workshop at the Fridge DC on kinetic sculpture and needed to put my new knowledge to work.
I was invited to be in an art show called imitation. The piece I did was a grand father clock that was a take off or imitation of a piece done by my friend Roger Cutler. It was based on some simple electronics (a simple resistor/capacitor) time constant to activate an electromagnetic. The parts were grossly out of proportion and totally exposed. Someone familiar with electronics will see the amusement and those not will become very curious. It was a great opening with lots of interaction and feedback.
Below is a cool night of pouring iron at the DC Glass Works where I made my first poured iron piece.
Below is me giving an explanation of part of my installation at Artomatic 2017 in Crystal City Virginia,
