Incessant Journey Opening Night

I can breathe now with the opening over, or can I?

I took photos for those of you who could not make it to the show.

The setting and presentation of my work made this exhibition successful. Equinox projected on the wall was effective in showing my obsession as an artist with the banality of every day for 9 years. Projected images lower to the floor made it possible for the viewer to relate to the daily archiving of my life and environment—thanks Michael for helping to set this up. 

An artists’ books exhibition in Boise created a different experience for most people. Once, a common experience was established with each book, the viewer related interesting comments on their life and the relationship with my books.

However, I had hoped to display City Shields in a more cohesive manner. A wonderful shelf built for the show was not wide enough to fit the whole project. This created a side dish display of the volumes. The volumes should have been on the same shelf or a shelf below the manhole covers to help the observer in relating to the whole project. People asked—Why weren’t the manhole cover images on the floor?

I enjoyed sharing my obsession with collecting and archiving the mundane in a unique, creative, and dynamic way for the viewer to experience. A great show reacquainting people with activities that link us together and introducing artists’ books to Boise.
