August 2012, I will be exhibiting my Fish Bomb Boat (FBB), at the Satellite Space of The University of Texas, San Antonio located in the Blue Star Art Complex. Accompanying the FBB will be projections of Fly-Throughs of the FBB in an envisioned world wracked by global warming.
The large landmasses have flooded, leaving small sand bars, floating root-mass islands and the tops of mountains. The remaining humans have constructed the flying machines on which to live, the only available resource, what they can grown on the islands. Trees are scarce and but paper mulberry, reeds, cane, hemp and other plants are readily available. String and rope is processed from hemp, and glue to apply the paper is rendered from small mammal hide. Henna, a hardy desert shrub requiring little water, is processed for the henna designs, and shellac from beetles, is processed, diluted in crude homemade alcohol for the sealant of the paper. I continue to develop the mythos in both the evolution of the FBB and in writings.
