video 1:Making Kozo the IPad will not support video uploading to the blog, so I'll be posting and linking through another site.

Fish Bomb Boats in San Antonio

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.

Here is an initial low rez rendering of the first of the Fly-Throughs.  Some of the vegetation on the island did not render, and although only 2 minutes long and rendered at 10 frames/sec at 160 x 90, it still took over an hour.

Intransigent Time Lapse Footage

Time Lapse video footage over the two weeks of the installation by Sean Gaulager.


Site specific ephemeral installation created in Austin, TX,

The Dreaming of the Trees: The Ecological Imperative

Post I: Rubbing my forehead

Art that I make to satisfy some academic economic motive has become increasingly unsatisfying.

There is a small garden wedged between a house and a tall 'privacy' fence.  It is November and chilly but the lettuce has sprouted.
