Chatauqua Institute

I'm writing this morning from NYC where I'm traveling with my collaborator, Eve Beglarian to western New York for a one week residency at the Chautauqua Institute. Eve and I have been working on a project about Houston's Cleveland Turner aka The Flower Man and his life and art. So, we're visiting Chautauqua as part of that process and learning about the act of "vanishing" for the next week.

After that, we are traveling to Michigan and Vermont to do some video work on separate music/video project where we are visiting every city in the U.S. called Brandon. So far we have been to the ones in Vermont, Mississippi, and Texas. Next are Brandon(s) Michigan and New York!

Looking forward to developing both of these projects more and sharing, slowly.
