A soundscape project I worked on in 2005-6 was just featured on NPR in the USA this week. Click the link for the 3 minute feature, or visit Soundtransit to book a journey around the world through sound…
this is what it looks like when you have a lot of patience and time…
This is called “repair”. #repair #browntabby @naritabby
No photoshop. No filter. Just pure Estonian countryside magic.

My father Steve (with my brother and another mad painter from Argentina named Sergio), Santa Fe New Mexico, circa 1981. People used to stop him on the street and would not let him escape when he told them he wasn’t Kris Kristofferson…
Dear Tumblr, having a blast. Wish you were here. D.
Current location: in the Estonian countryside, where the moon shines….
Extreme residency concept: alone on a remote island in Lake Superior, Michigan. I’ve been following this one over the years of their development, and although I haven’t been there (yet!), I would still highly recommend it if you are the independent type.
A few days ago the last of our 2014 residents departed from the island. They are now back on the mainland preparing their works and research for this years catalogue and exhibition at the DeVos Art Museum. 3 applications (6 artists in total) were awarded a generous honoraria to travel to Rabbit Island; to reflect on and challenge their practice in a remote forested wilderness surrounded by the largest body of freshwater on earth. Sound like something you would be interested in?
One month remains until the August 22nd deadline for 2015 summer residency applications. Visit the Art section to find out how you can live and work on the island next year, and learn more about the publication and exhibition that the DeVos awards each resident.
We are looking forward to your proposal.
DIY denim repair last week. Not nearly as nice as IndigoProof’s (but she has a special industrial darning machine), nor as beautiful as BandannaWandering’s (but he has a near-endless passion for hand-darning), these are just simple, machine-done repairs to help a couple old friends last a few moments longer…
