London, 27 October 2011
This is such an autumn scene! I love the colours and the old phone box, which is sadly becoming a rarer and rarer sight. I took it while I was waiting for the doors to open at Union Chapel to see Ryan Adams perform.

Edward Muybridge at The Tate

this is a great exhibition, and shows a view into his work that is more than just animal locomotion. 

from the snippets of info on the wall i have become very intrigued about his personal life and am now on a quest to learn..

why did he change his name all the time?

how did he get away with the murder of his wife’s lover? was the trial the ‘OJ’ of it’s time?

what sort of man was he really??

all in all, a successful exhibition, in my book, as i have left with many questions that i feel compelled to find the answers to.

i was also blown away by fiona banner’s work

i haven’t fully digested it, so don’t want to say anything, i guess at the moment it’s all feelings it’s evoked that i can’t put into words.

a def ‘must see’ if you’re in london.

Historia at HOST opening

Last night’s exhibition opening in London went real well, it was pretty busy and there was lots of good feedback about how great the show looks. I find it real cool how the location can totally change how the same work looks. I guess the thing about HOST is it’s not a straight line layout, you have to go around corners, so that creates an interesting way to discover the next work. The gallery are real pleased with the show, and are so helpful! Really, a big shout out to them for being so awesome!

I’ve also created an artist’s profile on ArtSlant , where I am able to list any shows I am in, which hopefully will be lots! Anyway, if you are interested in my work, it might be a good way of seeing what’s coming up.

It’s kind of weird, I came home, and wanted to tell someone all about it, but the teen was at a sleepover, and no one was on FB to chat..I feel a bit of a post-opening night downer. It’s such a high getting the work done, and on the walls, and seeing people seeing it and liking it, then to come home back to reality. Well, I guess it spurs you on to get the next show happening!

My latest exhibition opens next week. If you are in London, try to stop by and say hi!

A new bed for the collection! This one is in London, where I spent the night before going outlet shopping.

Fun day out in London, with lots of new things to discover and photograph.

I love that one with the doorman with his arm in a sling - it looks like the crazy Nick Jonas fans did that to him yesterday! (who knows? They MIGHT have!) We go soon to see him in Les Miserable, I’d like to bring my camera, not to photograph the play, but to take photos in general, but I am afraid they might not allow cameras, then it’ll be a hassle. 

I laughed so much when I saw the sign on the door across from the stage door - ” No whores work here” “No, whores work here” ha ha ha

My favorite photos from each project are…

Beds  I have so many photos from this series I love, it was hard to choose! This was taken at the Columbia Hotel, London in 2005. I love the darkness of it, and the subtlety of the colors. I feel like you can really sense someone having just left the bed.

Window I love the light shining thru the mist on the right hand side of the frame. The green of the grass in the park is so vibrant. To me, this is a very hopeful photo, that the light is coming and the foggy-ness will soon be gone.

Bookmarks I love this as it’s a picture my daughter drew of me before we went on holiday back home to NYC. It goes so well with the title of the book it was found in “Hey Nostradamus!” which is by Douglas Coupland (if you have never read any of his books, I highly recommend you do! You can also follow him on Twitter - @DougCoupland) As I wrote before, it is the space between the text and the image that is important, and I think this photo clearly illustrates that fact. I really love this project, because there is not one bit of ephemera I have found in a book that does not somehow relate with the title! I must stress this was not a conscious act - I just pick up whatever is to hand around me. 

I’ll keep you all posted on how the bookmaking is going!
