It's always hard to get these kinds of things started, so I thought I'd kick off the blog with a couple announcements. First, I've left NYC for the time being after 12 amazing years, it was simply time to change perspectives and cleanse the palate. Second, I'm currently an artist in residence at the Bemis Center in Omaha, which is what gave me the motivation to hit the road in the first place. The residency actually has a theme, "Sci-Fi and the Human Condition", which is a very open field, really, across the vast range of fantasy, fiction, film theory, cultural studies, and of course in the real world where technology has taken such control over our inner lives & creative time. Many avenues to explore & plenty of work to be done.
So, the plan is to use this section as a kind of diary for the things I'm working on, looking at and thinking about -- the psychic noise here is significantly lower here than NYC by several orders of magnitude -- and given my natural tendencies towards distraction and wandering, please check back in periodically, to make sure I'm staying on point.
