After finishing grad school in May, I spent the summer traveling and visiting old friends. I've been living in St. Louis since the end of August, and I'm loving it. I collaborated with artist Andrea McMurray on a multimedia installation called Hello... for Articafest, and interactive arts festival that happened this weekend. Here's a picture and article from Steve Truesdell of the River Front Times:

What a great turn out last night! We had to move the performances outside because we had close to 100 visitors and there was no room for everybody inside! More pictures and video soon.

Since the beginning of January, I have been working at the Hughes Gallery in Murphysboro, IL as an artist in resident. Thank you to Mike Jones and the General John A Logan Museum for allowing me to use this space to build and host my MFA thesis show, which will take place on March 21st. More details soon.
In May, a friend help me build a top-bar beehive, and started keeping bees. I have been doing a lot of documenting with photos, video, and journaling, and I am working on a creative, digital story-telling project with all of this. Stay tuned!
