Whatevs, as they say. Right now, it is all good. I would go so far as to say it is awesomesauce.
First up in April will be a participatory performance project of an alliterative nature done as part of The Brooklyn Museum's First Saturday program. I am pretty excited about this since approximately 10,000 people attend these events. Yes, you read that correctly - 10,000. Excited might not be the best word for how I feel about it, but let's keep it at that for now.
More on that project later, today I simply wanted to acknowledge that I just ordered sewing patterns for historically accurate dresses from the American colonial era as part of a video project I am creating. This is all part of the ongoing collaboration with four other artists on the subject of war, revolutions and the Battle of Brooklyn. A new group exhibition on the subject will be installed at the end of April.

Or because she knows her garments are made with 100% historical accuracy?
For many months, I have been feeling like my work is shifting in its direction but mostly that feeling has been just that - a feeling. I haven't taken many actions towards making it real. So plunking down cold, hard cash for costumes for a video feels like something.
Ideas. I have Big Ideas.
Where is this all heading? I have no idea but I guess we will find out.....
