Mark,

Thanks, glad you like it.

Yes, the images are done on a flat bed scanner. It takes a while for me to
"get into the swing of moving while scanning" and I keep trying different
movements and refining ones that are close to creating the image I want. I
also wind up not saving scans that don't "work out" and then review the ones
I saved and make another cut.

I haven't performed much lately but had a great time when I did. Some museums
asked me to leave once the guards figured out that I didn't belong. Many just
went along with it. Those were different times though and in this political
climate I am certain that the response would not be as accommodating.

I'm especially interested in your performance work with the wearable
sculptures. I love the idea of self-installation! Do the museums ever hassle
you? That's similar to something I've been doing, which I call 'stealth
puppeteering'.
I'd love to hear more about your wearable sculpture experiences.
Peace, Mark >>
