E X P O

April 13, 2010

Here are some photos of my recent exhibition at Igloo Gallery in Portland, OR. It was a blast installing the show. I received a warm welcome and so much help ‘n’ good times from folks in Portland.
The show is on view until April 24th (by appointment: 646-763-4905)

This piece is titled Shopping Cart Lounge Chair.
The idea for the show came about when I started thinking about an inventors convention (inventor with a small i) that would occur in the near future. I was also thinking about :
-addressing current environmental and economic concerns by imagining possible futures
-human ingenuity and resourcefulness and its relationship to commerce
-small victories
-progress as in finishing the leftovers
