So. Many people have asked me... what exactly do I plan to do with all these menus, survey responses, photos, roadtrips, just the whole project, anyway? Well, I do appreciate the curiosity, but as a rule I don't like to talk about something until it's actually done. On the art-process side of things, the work needs that kind of privacy in order to evolve freely; stating "how it's going to be" discourages change. On the publicity side of things, it can kinda suck if you've been telling everyone the fine details of Plan A, only to end up six months "late" with Plan Q; then people get confused, wonder if they've missed something or, in the worst case, decide you don't know what the hell you're doing. Trust me, I do know what the hell I'm doing, even if the specifics do keep wiggling around. Such is the nature of this long-term, multi-tentacled art project. I hope when you finally see Plan X, Y or Z you'll forgive me for playing my cards so dang close to the vest.

Meanwhile, I'm willing to tell you everything you want to know about my current show! This is a big ol' sculptural piece that I made back when the Chinese restaurant project was barely a twinkle in my eye. Although it is somewhat related. Anyway I think it's looking pretty good, if I do say so myself, so come on down! Oh... & there'll be fortune cookies at Friday's opening, too! (wink)
