Fund raising campaign

I'm producing work for my first solo show in San Francisco this coming July (for three months). I'm very excited to do this, however, moving work there from Portland and back, plus production is costly. So I've started a funding campaign at www.hatchfund.org/project/in_and_out

If you get a moment, take a look at the video a friend of mine in San Francisco put together for me. If anyone here can pass this along to fellow artists…

Conversation on Sound Collage with Alina Oswald, Art & Understanding Magazine

Help Us Beta Test

Hi All,

We're starting to work on having stuff for sale for raising funds to operate the museum programs (this website included that costs about 250.00 a year) The rents are expensive in Santa Fe and we have a pretty big space, about 2,000 square feet housing and exhibiting the archives containing thousands and thousands of works. The cost is about 2,500.00 a month out of pocket for rent, utilities, internet, etc. (Not very sustainable out of my own pocket.) We'll be running the…

From a work-in-progress, "Threnody for a Forgotten Plague", work concerned with the early days of the AIDS pandemic.

Collage versus colagem

(...) O conceito de colagem, a collage, foi pensado

durante o século XX por Max Ernst, ao qual aderiram muitos artistas

ligados a vários movimentos e principalmente ao surrealismo.

Historic assemblages

Many of us think that assemblages were first constructed one century ago, when Pablo Picasso

created cubist constructions. Other names, attached to the art form are Marcel Duchamp,
