Fine Messes

I had a great time celebrating SoEx’s Grand Opening and the opening of Bellwether this weekend. Great people, great space and a great reason to celebrate. Both nights ended with dancing in the street. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate a new home.

I was too busy taking in all the happy faces to bother with photos, but here are two… I’m quite fond of many of the works in the show, and especially of Jonn Herschend‘s work. I know a lot of people came to the opening but didn’t have a chance to see the video, and I strongly recommend going back for it. I’d offer some sort of bribe — cookies perhaps? — but the video in itself is reward enough. Yeah, I know, big words. So?

And a studio moment:

Dad's old saw.

Firing up dad's old circular saw for the first time.

Fired up a new hand-me-down saw. This one also dates from the pre-dustbag years.
