Ochava Solstice as Print-on-Demand Book

March 18, 2013

About a year and a half ago I made a blurb book for my Ochava Solstice series. I recently made the book publicly available on Blurb’s website. The link is here. The softcover version is about $10 to purchase with a roughly equal amount for shipping.

I made a Blurb book for my series Ochava Solstice. I used Blurb’s option with cream-colored, uncoated paper and black and white printing. It has a very lo-fi quality, almost like a zine or a Xerox. The book’s quality seems to mimic the mimetic quality of the buildings themselves. I also like it because it doesn’t look like a typical Blurb book and is cheaper to boot!

Ochava Solstice at Step Gallery

March 13, 2013

I was very happy this past January as I was able to exhibit my series Ochava Solstice at the Step Gallery, which is part of Arizona State’s School of Art. It was a real pleasure to have the chance to see the work installed and get reactions and thoughts from visitors. Here are a few pictures of the work installed in the gallery.

For the opening, I selected triangularly shaped foods.

Visitor’s spontaneously created this negative triangle within the larger triangle of Hershey’s Kisses. No one wanted to wreck the “piece” and, amazingly, I was left with a lot of chocolate at the end. That never happens at openings!
