Last night I found myself at a reunion of sorts being asked to represent exactly what it was that "I was doing now." I found it very complicated to represent the qualities of my life - to say "I do landscaping" didn't quite cover it. "I'm a trucker," while it went over well, is far from accurate. "I write poems" was not the best way to tell my story. I ended up just throwing my hands up in the air because to make a representation would've melted my (and, I suspect, other's) brain. What follows is part of that representation. Somehow. Somehow. Somehow, whatever it is that I do put me in the position to be working with (the vanguard of floristry) Ferncroft, in this off the map space, behind a camera. Like...Its a life. Its really amazing. I just super appreciated it today.
(Then our second wedding was at the Connecticut Street Armory! Another set of images...)
I'll stay brief, but this work is so complicated to me. Believe me, I delete 200 images to get 40 usable ones. In this space, people are moving all the time, the light is different in every part of the room, and trying to recognize what is important to focus on all in a second of time before the moment has moved on... I'm learning. Even writing this I am recognizing mistakes I made...
I'm including some images of Liz and Erin that on the one hand are less than technically "..." They have a bit of blur or movement to them...this is "error" on my part not intention - but yet, I still feel they are good representations of the process, speed, and movement of the installation.
