When a local/national journalist, Ross Barkan, announced he was running for State Senate in my district, I did some research and decided to support him. When his campaign got an office, I pitched my idea to be the Artist in Residence in the space. I subsequently made a series of images from my Instagram postings on this work. In addition to bringing some furniture, my first action was to make two slogans (Tyranny Is No Joke, The Future Belongs to Those Who Organize), clean and hang my large print of lilies.
Sandbox off-site interview (#5) with John Avelutto in front of audience for the Re-Animator exhibition at Bay Ridge Art Space, where I showed the Sandbox diptychs.
For SAW 2013, I approached Mr. Safa of Al Safa, who gave me permission to hang two images, visible to the street, as well as conducting conversations by the open windows - on what it is that makes people feel at home in a place. As part of the conversations, I treated participants to Al Safa food with my SAW honorarium for materials.
