“Art flourishes where there is a sense of adventure.”
Alfred North Whitehead
A video walkabout of my show at the Carr Gallery in Idaho Falls, Idaho. We had just completed the set-up when I made this video. I explain the work a little bit, which is basically admitting I'm damned if I do, and damned if I don't. . .I think the real meaning of the work has so much to do with the experience of being there in person with it that any other presentation or explanation is verging on disingenuous. But, these videos are fun (I hope) and recreate the experience (I hope) to some extent.
I'm happy to thank the U.S.-Norway Foundation for Educational Exchange, the U.S. Embassy in Oslo, and the Viking Ship Museum, for their support of the creation of "Skibladnir," seen in this video, which was first displayed in Oslo earlier this year. "Skibladnir" has survived two Atlantic crossings, although the keel was remade for this exhibition.
