Fantastic month at Elsewhere. And one month was not enough. I worked on both a visual performance spinning zoetrope-images live and a “motion portrait” of Flora Muybridge, the wife of Eadweard Muybridge, the “grandfather mom motion pictures”. 

 Detail from “Flora”, work-in-progress - final will be UV-cured pigment on polycarbonate and will animate when spun by hand, lit by a synchronous strobe.

 My wife and kids joined me for the last two weeks of the residency. We went standup paddle boarding in Black Canyon with fellow resident Caroline Cooper. Thanks Elsewhere for welcoming my family.
