I'll be lecturing at the Medium Festival of Photography in San Diego on Saturday, October 24th at 1:30PM. The festival is in its 4th year and continues to be one of the best photography festivals around. It's a 4-day event and happens downtown San Diego at the Lafayette Hotel. I'm excited and honored to be invited to talk, and I hope to see you there. Register here!
Work from "G.U.T. Feeling" is included in this wonderful group exhibition at Honoré in Paris. Other artists include Alec Soth, Jim Goldberg, Larry Sultan, and many more. If you happen to be in town, please stop by and see it.
This past summer I participated in the Waabizipinikaan-Ziibi Filmmaking Residency, also known as WZFR. The fruits of my labors will be screened alongside the films of the other residents on Saturday, September 26th, 2015 at 7PM. The screening will be at Lily Springs Farm in Osceola, WI, with the films being projected over Mud Lake. More details here.
I'll be at the MN State Fair this Friday, September 4th--all day! I'll be in the Fine Arts Building coordinating and documenting an experiment designed to test whether or not the human mind can affect the outcome of coin flips and dice rolls. Stop by and take part!
Over in Paris I'm happy to share that a portfolio of my on-going project "G.U.T. Feeling" was published in Le Monde's special magazine (July-Sept. issue) to commemorate the 100 year anniversary of Albert Einstein's theory of relativity. Order a copy through Le Monde.
About six months ago, the fine folks at Leav commissioned me to do a series of short films for their platform. I'm happy to announce that the project debuted as part of this year's Northern Spark festival and is now available for anyone to experience.
This is a project unlike any other that I've worked on. For one thing, it's totally digital. You have to download the Leav app on your iPhone in order to experience. Secondly, it's site and time specific, meaning, you actually have to visit the locations in Minneapolis where I filmed at the same time I made the films. So, if you want to see the "Golden Hour" film I made in Loring Park, you have to go to Loring park during sunset in order to watch it. There's no other way! I know, kind of frustrating, but also kind of genius.
There are five films total. I encourage you, especially if you live in the Twin Cities and have access to an iPhone, to download Leav, experience "Golden Hour", and check out all the other great projects on Leav while you're at it. Special thanks to Leav and Northern Spark for making this happen.
I'm working on a new series based on my dice experiments and research into scientific archives. Tentatively titled "Die", I'm planning on unveiling this series at my studio this summer. Limited edition prints and a zine will be available. Sign up to my mailing list to make sure you're among the first to hear!
If you haven't seen the spectacular show at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts yet, you've got a few more months to check it out. The first room features a massive installation of Blue Line of Woods reproductions hung in collaboration with Karl Blossfeldt's work. It's a great combination and I couldn't be more proud.
