We have just bagged some really great smelling compost for Artshop!, Franklin Street Works’ popup shop to celebrate its 2nd year anniversary. This is our summer compost that has been curing in our Crown Heights lot for several weeks & recently got a shot of inoculum from Rodale Institute.

I finally had a few minutes to make a graphic out of the posters we installed in the Stamford, CT, storefront. This way its all legible. Hoping to find another use for them too.

The ExcessNYC project is in full swing. Our website is up and running. We just had a workshop at 3rd Ward last weekend. Next up: we build out our compost site at a garden in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

We have a few events coming up this fall. Will post here as soon as they are confirmed. You can join our Facebook fan page to stay in touch.

 

Browsing through the bookstore at the Museo Reina Sofia, look what I found! An Atlas for Radical Cartography was nestled in between an old postcard book and a book about urbanism. An Atlas has had a great run (I have a map included in the collection).

 

We are working on the web site for the project Excedents/Excess. In the meanwhile, I will post images from our install at Matadero.

And this announces our residency.

Ricardo Explaining our Research to Journalist at Opening

(and, here is the article from that interview)

 

Ricardo and I have been awarded a commission and residency from El Ranchito (a project of Matadero in Madrid) along with artist José Luis Aguilera and Beatriz Marcos.

The artist-in-residence at El Ranchito is unique in that it is available for artists who do not reside in Madrid (whether Spanish or international) and come recommended by artists and cultural agents who are city residents in order to develop a joint or collaborative project. The residencies can last from 3 to 6 weeks between May and December 2011. We will begin our residency in early December and remain in Spain through January.

More soon about the specifics of the commission, but here is the announcement on the El Ranchito blog.

 

This summer I am visiting several sites in western states (NM, CO, MT) with my large format camera as I continue production on my Superfund photo series. This past weekend I was in western NM — uranium country — and drove back through the most magnificent thunderstorm. How I love the sky and openness out here!

Below is a snap shot I took in Milan, NM. I will be speaking about this very recent work (and the photography series in general) hosted by the Santa Fe Art Institute this Friday at 6pm at Tipton Hall.
