"..And that's what I think the magic ingredient is: Wonder. Wonder is honest, it’s completely innocent. It can’t be artificially evoked. For me, there’s no greater ability than the gift of another human being giving you that feeling — to hold them still just for a brief moment in their day and have them surrender to wonder. When it’s tapped, the affirmation of being alive reaches you almost to a cellular level. And when an artist does that to another artist, it’s like you’re compelled to pass it on. It’s like a dormant command that suddenly is activated in you, like a call to Devil’s Tower. Do unto others what’s been done to you." - Andrew Stanton

"It seems to me that there are two basic ways of working: one is that the artist leads the work and the other is that the work leads the artist. The work ought to lead the artist, not the artist the work. For the artist to lead the work one must assume that the artist knows what he or she is doing and has something to say. When the work leads the artist, the process is one of discovery. I don't have anything I'm dying to say, but I do know that if I allow myself to excavate, to research, the process leads to meanings that could never have been logically imagined." - Anish Kapoor

Alicia and I had an amazing time in Albuquerque for the International Symposium on Electronic Art. All the folks at the Albuquerque Museum of Art and History were incredibly wonderful people and a pleasure to work with, and we're so excited about how the piece looks in the gallery. Here are some installation shots.

Once, in the backseat of my parents' car on the way to a wedding, I came across an American Flag pin that my mom must have just purchased from a dollar store. It came in a small jewelry-type box, and on the underside was a gold, oval sticker that said "Made In China". It blew my mind. Ever since then, I have always checked labels to see where things are made. I found this pin at a great place in Portland, Maine called Ruth's Reusable Resources.
