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.

Manic Castle Hashes spotted in the wild

Back in 2020, I made a set of stickers using images from Manic Castle Hash, cut them from brushed-chrome vinyl on the same vinyl cutter I’d used to make the mural, and sent them out as a bit of art mail to some friends, colleagues, and awesome people. It’s been an unexpected joy to find out where they went, with the evidence still trickling in — only wish I had more of the rather ephemeral snapshots at hand.

Many of the stickers remained pristine on their original backing. But others seem to have been attracted to technological devices, doors and windows, David Bowie, and surfaces within arm’s reach of children. Could not be more delighted with these discoveries.
