The pop-up drive-in, powered by a car, in the pitch black desert of Moriarty, NM, USA. On the right you can see the lights of cars on I-40, historic Route 66...
This was astounding!
Both our projects this year were truly stellar. It was an honor to be a part of Nova and Jessica's installs.
Penultimate airport trip of EbM 02012.
In four hours Amy and I drop off our rental and board our respective flights.
Albuquerque, we will return in a year with Scott Oliver and Travis Somerville to install permanent works in our desert retreats.

OMG! Brilliant barely describes it.
In the cooling desert outside Moriarty; in a field grazed by horses and cows; on a landscape riven with rattlesnakes, ants, beetles, and cacti, a copper screen chilled to freezing was coated in milk, taking on the appearance of an ice floe floating in the sky. Upon its surface flickered the sublime images of Jessica Segall in the arctic. Beautiful.

That's what the abq newspaper will say when writing about isea2012. Except no reporters have come out here yet.
Nonetheless, the first EbM project of 02012, Nova Jiang and Jamie O'shea's Cloud Vessels, is a huge success.
Thanks to all who made it possible, especially the brave folks who came out to our desert oasis!
Two mornings left to drink water distilled from the desert air of Valencia county, New Mexico. 10am Saturday and Sunday
Yesterday Nova, Patrick, and I drove up to Santa Fe. The wonderful and amazing Patrick Morrissey of Prairie Dog Glass blew five cloud vessels of glass in his shop at Jackalope. Nova directed, and together they crafted a stunning solution to the problem of additive manufactured clouds being lost in the ether.
I'm in Santa Fe now picking up the finished cloud vessels. Woohoo!
In the desert yesterday, Jamie collected our first water with the solar still!
At ten am this morn we will begin serving water from clouds in the midst of the barren llano outside Los Lunas, New Mexico!
