Macro to Micro

Photography in macro scale. I was blown away by my camera putting its entire processing power into this one blade of grass, while a 12,000 lb 120' long sculpture loomed behind it.

RePo expansion

Yes. The time has come, and not without frozen fingers and complaints of the impending winter. RePo will make an adition to the container, for the RePo People to warm their toes and brighten their days. The addition will be hyper efficiently insulated, and ultra awesomely decked out with modern conveniences for the most demanding employee. Cd Player, drill, and maybe a trash can will be included. Let the party begin.

COTTA or Community Outreach Through The Arts is a group of students proposing public art projects to aesthetically enhance the Village of Alfred. We are currently proposing the renovation/replacement of the bus shelter. We will present the Village Board with 4 concept models, and these are the rough drafts. Art will ultimately be intergrated into the physical structure, and we are determining appropriate places for artworks to be sited like cast bracketry, wood carvings, historical collages, and mosaics on the floor. Do you have a favorite design or any input?

oye yo the snow is coming..

As of November 2nd the Arches stand. The question now is if the art math and engineering will hold up to the elements. The 30 arches stand on top of a hill in Andover Ny. The weekend before we started the installation, 60 mph winds were present on top. Our prime rib stakes that hold the sculpture static are of concern, even if they are 4 feet deep and support the structure with cable rated at a combined 14,000 Lb breaking strength. We will give it one week, or until the next sunny day to de-install. This was a structure test, and we will use the results as clout for installing the arches on campus in the spring.

We are now halfway into the endeavor. The remaining duties are de-installation and a returning the poles to their original location. Hope it doesn't snow a foot...
