This is my first press. My mom thought I may turn out to be a gay off-braodway dancer after seeing this picture.
I quit dancing and began taking copious amounts of karate. Yes – I was the world’s most dangerous fighter.
Got a job in silicon valley after school, hated it. Went to the Art Institute and started making some bad drawings.
and bad sculptures…
Did my first public performance whilst there – free ideas!! Yeah!
Got an artist in residence at the San Francisco Sanitary Landfill. Started making sculptures with all of the stuff I found out there.
How About a Burrito at My Favorite Place?
I posted an ad on craigslist.org asking people to join me for a burrito at my favorite taco truck in Oakland, CA. We met up at a specified time and ordered together. After ordering, I took a picture of my meal date with their food.
We then ate together, discussing whatever. When we finished, I took a photo of their “burrito sculpture,” (a.k.a their trash).
It’s nice to see the person, take into account what they do and who they are, and then see how they fidget with thier leftover food and trash eventually completing their sculpture.
