(No) Vacancy up at Hennepin and 7th.




I've got a brand new installation up in the second floor windows at the corner of Hennepin and 7th St. in downtown Minneapolis. This project is part of the Made Here initiative, which transforms vacant windows in visual showcases throughout the downtown district.

You can read all about it on the Made Here website. The piece will be up through October.

Cinco de Mayhem 2014


Last year, I made a "bunch of balloons" pinata for Burlesque of North America's amazing Cinco de Mayhem event. This year, they've stepped up their game and so have I. My life-size anteater pinata is filled with hundreds of - you guessed it - plastic ants! Make sure to swing by the Co Exhibitions space tomorrow night for what promises to be an incredible party.

New Piece for Digifabulous Exhibition

I just finished this new piece titled There's nothing to see over here... for the Digifabulous exhibition curated by Anthony Kling in the Quarter Gallery at the Regis Center for Art.

The piece is made from laser cut, CNC routed and vacuum formed parts. Materials include HDPE, PETG, polystyrene plastic, acrylic, faux fur, spray paint, servo motors and an Arduino. So yes, you guessed it, the eyes move!
