today at my gallery job at JOAN OF ART, i picked up a wonderful PEACE necklace, as well as an antique, aqua blue IDEAL Ball mason jar with original lid and wire bail!
this PEACE neckpiece is by a minneapolis artist named Heinz Brummel.
he is a sculpture and jewelry designer with an amazing collection referencing the work of Alexander Calder (whose mobile at the MIA inspired my own mobile pictured a few posts below)!
Brummel even fashions mobile necklaces!
these PEACE necklaces are most stunning, though my version is silver.

i encourage every artist i know to visit the site of one of my most admired artists, Harrell Fletcher.
okay, this is truly a coincidence (and also very significant) that he is from portland.
i was introduced to him last year as he was a guest in my experimental video course at the U of M.
he has participated in whitney biennials for his work with LEARNING TO LOVE YOU MORE where he engages an expansive community to participate with assignments. An endearing collection of folk art! real grassroots. his process feels very genuine and the community he creates through LTLYM is almost visceral -- it is now a book, indeed!
I LOVE HIS VIDEOS. please view them for yourselves
i've noticed a unique sensibility portland filmakers are using. i believe it to be raw and honest, exactly what is appealing to me.
they are fun and accessible! touring my favorite city of portland. a giant playground!
seriously! this is YACHT
by SARAH SZE...mobile nouveu...my plan to start utilizing loads of important ephemera!
the last few ideas i have been working with involves motion and cycle.
i prefer creating installations and especially video!
(i have been thinking long and hard about the ways in which my blog will benefit the greater good of humankind.
most importantly, starting with mine own hardships with structuring ideas into finished work.
in basic terms, and of utmost importance, my blog will be in motion.
to contain collections, become public, and inspire further collections of resources, and so on)

welcome to my blog!
(even though this ends up being pushed away into a very unwelcoming position in history as blogs flow linearly and the new is stacked upon the old.)
i will make sure the featured material is increasingly exciting!
