Parts for new sculpture and irl Mirror Chain coming off the cnc table. Metal chains are bent or welded to make closed-loop links; I’ve neither option with mirror sheet. Instead I went for a simple design with two alternating types of links: One link is a closed loop, and one link has a gap that slots to build up the chain. It’s funny how ideas emerge — the resulting chains have a binary pattern rhythm, a more interesting variety of views as one walks around them, and overall a different feel than conventional links would provide. Next solo show is sculpture, opens in October. Next architectural digital work is TBD, and whilst I grapple with its seeming impossibilities, who knew that the exploratory convos and doors they’re opening would be so much fun.

Bookish moments and a dream team

Bindery and book notes

It’s been so fun to work on the experimental exhibition catalog for Inverted Dome, and what a dream team. With all sorts of confusion on how to approach the cover, one afternoon I called Charlene Matthews — also known as The Binderess, bookbinder for the greats and exceptional book artist in her own right — and she invited me by her studio, pictured above. It’s a cabinet of curiosities every bit as fascinating as she. I went over the ideas and problems, two minutes later she had the perfect solution and we were testing away.

That’s one moment of many (others involved me being very puzzled with a laminator). I’m grateful to Salome Schmuki for her impeccable design, Michael Ned Holte and Chris Fite-Wassilak for their insightful texts and reflections, the inimitable curator Aurora Tang for her guidance and vision, and to all you, in deep-calls-to-deep fashion, for supporting the way as you do. The Inverted Dome catalog is available for purchase here, and I’ll be sharing a bit more about it soon.
