2nd Happening, 'pinching the light fantastic" video installation event at Valhall Arts

Well, the second happening went well I think. I added a few minor additions to the installation, and broadcasted the event live, (or almost live) on This time, I had the power cord for the iphone to do this, but with my inexperience, I was unaware that the video would not shoot in the panoramic mode. (I was able to see the video fine on the phone, and learn!) So, all the documentary videos are flipped a 1/4 turn. Agh! So, if you are on a laptop, you can witness the event by visiting the site on Ustream,,
good luck, and pinch back with any comments! Thanks to all who made it out on a Wednesday night, and for the rest of you, You Missed It!

Inspired Art Denver

I am happy to be involved in another charity art exhibition. The Inspired Art Project takes poems written by Denver's youth and asks local artists to create original works inspired by their words. The Inspired Art Show exhibition and auction will be on April 29th, 2010 at the Space Gallery with proceeds going to support America SCORES Denver and Think 360 Arts. This project offers a new way to show the power and impact of the words of Denver students, and brings to life their creativity and imagination. See their blog for more info,

I am creating a new work for poem #6, Red Brick, and entering a photograph from my Water series for poem #10, Untitled. See their blog to read the poems.

The installation/happening 'pinching the light fantastic' was a success last night. Some visitors were startled and disturbed by being recorded, others relaxed in the playfulness of it all. Most were confused at first, but enjoyed the novelty of the installation.
I also did a few live streaming videos of the happening on Ustream, and uploaded live via Twitter. You can see the videos at this link I apologize in advance for the poor quality of some of the recordings, it is hard to talk about the work, while recording the work, without being rude.
Due to several requests, a second event has been added. PTLF will have a reprisal performance on Wednesday, February 24 from 6:00-8:00 pm. I will attempt to stream live again, and hopefully with better results.
