Peace on Side

Working on a Peace Bench series for the Town of Princeton
incorporating them into parks and municipal lots.

Different spaces,places and faces
working out the kinks
seeing what can be created from nothing
or less.

It's a blunderful life

Still getting that gusset joint 
Cnc'd 3/4 ply painted and sandwiched to stringers.
Excessive racking
Beating a well worn path to this drawing board

Plucky fourteen

 Thirteen moons have passed since we started our one year artist in resistance foray at D&R Greenway, Johnson Education Center  
It was a great run
Appreciate all the efforts made by staff et al.
But we must return to Trenton, where this sort of behavior is more readily acceptable.
Sort of, sometimes, , kinda depends

That said, we will be suspending our full moon festivities until further notice as we prepare for the upcoming show next month at the Arts Council of Princeton

B home @ arts council of Princeton

Thanks again to all who helped and participated.

Sincerly Flattered, or whats the other option? Lets default to love

       People have been linking the B and Bee , a more upscale  music festival version, asking if they "ripped me off".
As anyone who has gotten within screaming distance knows how we  have been  designing and building structures very similar to these.

       Am I pissed off that someone else is taking this design principle and applying it in the real world?     Hmmm, not really, (emphasis on the really) as our primary objective, is in providing safe secure structures.
        Realizing  that , the more people that  explore  the shape and concepts inherent in hexagonal structures,  will lead to improvements through experimentation and cross pollination.

Our present design, lacks some of the elegance and luxury of our "completion", but we are more interested in exploring what can be done with the least. How can safe structures be constructed out of ubiquitous and underutilized materials? Or can it?

As we cycle out of D&R Greenway and spend more time at our Trenton facility, there will be pics and stories of pallets and cardboard, tires and bamboo and maybe a candle or two.

One size it's downfall

Shoving that hexagonal peg into any hole that appears.
Wether it b the global conflicts with the surfeit of refugees, or the local Anchor house bike ride to support runaway youth.

Or perhaps a cell could be constructed for a friend who provided countless meals and spiritual sustenance at the TA , now suffering from the ravages of substance abuse .

Or cells could be constructed along D&R Greenway trails as a rest stop / space to appreciate the scenery.

Or perhaps a backyard folly, to get one outside of the box of habitat , and offer a new perspective .

All of these , and more are what drives this project.
More being the operative word,
As they transcend shelter or sculpture in my vainglorious mind.
Creating compassionate community, I see it
I see it every day 
In every way
Healing helping with a humble hand 
An enclosure to contain and maintain.

MBH @AAN 2014

Lets see if i can recap this last dayz,
starts with a text that the Mobile Bread House has been towed from   Tamara 's show
 in front of the Gallery @219 E Hanover st.
Not a problem, i mean how difficult can it be to get a lapsed vehicle that is not registered in your name back on a Saturday?

Well, we all know how the story ends, and who needs more extraneous data?
