In McAllen, Texas. I'm wearing my halo and wondering where the gallerist is. He took the key. I'm licked in. And the public is locked out. But the show looks great, I've got tunes, and I think this might be a wickedly hilarious performance piece if I'm in here and the audience is out there

Cleaned and painted last night. Beginning the install of A World Building Primer now. It's a beautiful space.
I'm giving two presentations on EbM in the South Texas College gallery tomorrow. Just a little nervous. Originally wrote a lecture on the co-evolution of art making and consciousness in early humans. But switched things up at the last minutes.
Now it's an hour talking about EbM.

We're creating a library of 12" x 16" dioramas, one for each site. It will take a couple generations, but we intend to create an HO (1:87.1) scale model of the entire planet earth. When all of the diorama sections are assembled we will have an HO scale earth. Which we are considering putting in orbit around the moon.

EbM's good friend Matt Weaver admiring the ceramic interpretive sign at Site 0001: Bledsoe, Texas.
Matt and Carson are out installing the sign this morning. Alex and I are finishing the install for tonight's opening at WaterSpace South in Slaton. We are introducing the town to the work of Scott Oliver, the artist we commissioned for WaterSpace Plaza. As well as documentation, we are presenting his proposal for the plaza.
We are also introducing EbM to the town with a smattering of member's works and documentation from previous installs.

We arrived in Slaton, TX about an hour ago. We're staying at this amazing gallery/studio, WaterSpace. We're laying out A World Building Primer, the EbM traveling show.
For this presentation we're dedicating one window to the work of the artist commissioned for Slaton, Scott Oliver.
The other window is EbM documentation.
Behling that window are a handful of works by the members of EbM.

The 12v charger in black is recharging my phone w a USB, and two AA batteries in a universal charger with transformer-style adaptor for all the world's electrical outlets. And that little stereo is my wicked portable stereo with mp3 player so cars without ⅛" inputs (I carry an ⅛" male to male everywhere for emergencies.)
I'll post pix on Flickr tonight of the actual site
At the Red Ball Cafe in ABQ, on our way to the EbM site in Los Lunas site New Mexico.
Last night we had a fabulous visit with Erin and Nancy of PLAND, a New Mexico residency and art experiment. They are fabulous. And PLAND is ridiculously inspiring.
A busy day today. We're documenting the Los Lunas site, visiting the Valencia county records office to gather info on the site, visiting the Torrance county records office for info on the Moriarty site, visiting the Moriarty site again, and visiting our neighbors out there: the Rockin' RC ranch and Club 203. Diverse.
Then this evening we're dining with the directors of ISEA2012.
Could we be luckier?

The reception for Jon's work went very well. We followed it up with Chicago style pizza. Then the wrangling of youth. Jon & Danielle's three young'uns and Stel & Angela's youngest. Three youngest saying goodbye with post-midnight yowls. Emma, the Whitfill's oldest was the exception -- very calm, reasonable, and pleasant.
All great kids. A great week had by all. And two new sculptures for the transformation of planet earth.

Anyway, we're enjoying candles, my battery powered boombox, difficult children, and a little chit chat.
