Summer Twenty Ten

In May, I completed my graduate work at the College of Design at North Carolina State University. Immediately, I began work on a large scale exhibition design for 4-H NC, which will be on view in the Special Collections Gallery at D.H. Hill Library at NC State for the first half of 2011. It's been a busy few months.

In June, I debuted a video installation called HIGHLIFE — a collaboration with Neill Prewitt and Eleanor Blake — at Artspace in Raleigh. 

In July, my second solo exhibition opened at 311 W. Martin St. Galleries in downtown Raleigh. Dave Delcambre at the NC Art Blog did a nice review. New Raleigh wrote a little about it here.

Also in July, I did some guest blogging at

Art:21

 (a project of the PBS documentary series, 

Art:21—Art in the Twenty-First Century

.)

I talk a bit about my process and motivations, and take a broader look at the forward momentum of the art scene here through interviews with

Tracy Spencer

,

Shaun Richards

,

André Leon Gray

,

David Colagiovanni

,

Harrison Haynes

, and

Bill Thelen

.

And earlier this month, a video piece I designed with

Miles Holst

called "Radios Appear" debuted in the Block2 exhibition space at the Urban Design Center at the corner of Fayetteville and Hargett Streets in downtown Raleigh. It runs through September 20. The fall is shaping up to be jam-packed as well… exhibitions in Carrboro and Durham, SPARKcon in Raleigh, and the debut of a new rock band. Stay tuned.
