Dawson City is a thriving creative community. Writers, artists and performers abound here so it makes sense this hardy and eccentric community is equal to the task in creating a mid-winter contemporary art festival. (s)hiver is now in it’s second year and addresses the long dark of winter nights here through outdoor installations and various performances and exhibitions throughout the city. It’s already garnered international attention.
I’ll be participating with three distinct projects: a 2d work installed out in the middle of the frozen Yukon River, a roving performance and projection (wearable technology) throughout Dawson and a permanent series of text-based augmented reality installations.
If you happen to be in Canada’s far north-west that night, stop by and say hi. (I know that sounds ridiculous)
The future is more of the same.
Absurdity only takes one generation to be normalized.

These paintings, for me, embody industrial repetition through the aid of machines. They are endless mazes, not a labyrinth leading to truth. The sun now never sets on Hardt and Negri’s Empire; sprawl is power and environmental catastrophe is ownership.

Dawson City League of Lady Wrestlers: Grudge Match in Guggieville
Over 200 people attended Dawson City’s third annual League of Lady Wrestlers event on Saturday, August 1st. Billed as a “Grudge Match in Guggieville”, contestants squared off in a riotously fun atmosphere over the course of six scheduled matches.
Just three days ago I visited Escuela Normal Rural Miguel Hidalgo in Atequiza, Mexico. This is not too far west from yesterday’s shootout in Tanhuato. I felt it was important to publish this series quickly. A different perspective on Mexico at this time is needed, within my realities as a visitor seeing this place for the first time.
Especially thrilling for me was it was not some writer with and interest in arts (nothing wrong with that) but an artist and a writer named Micheal Ernest Sweet. His work has always impressed me and this interest from a very accomplished street photographer based in New York is very encouraging. Generally when artists and children like your work then you are doing something right.
Thanks to Pat Apt for her support, encouragement and providing me the space to exhibit this work.
