Hello again. I’m sorry it’s been a while since I’ve updated here, the past couple months have been crazy. I’m currently writing from Marfa, TX where I’m doing an internship with the Chinati Foundation. I’ve only been here for a week but it’s been wonderful. Some other exciting news: I got my first artist residency in Iceland. I’ll be there from Nov 2011 to the end of Jan 2012. There’s more info here, Skaftfell.
Ok, so what I’ve posted here is some images of my new work from the past few months at my studio in KC. The work has grown in size and I also made a larger-scale temporary installation called “Rubbernecker.” Enjoy!

These next couple images are of some “sketches” I was doing just before I left KC. They’re not meant to be finished pieces, but more like experiments.
