Hunting and Gathering

Posted on May 16 2017

This is not a typical summer for me. When it comes to travel I'm a bit of a slacker.  I am an unapologetic workaholic; very much a person doing rather than a person being. When I do travel it is usually to a destination that has a beach to comb, indigenous crafts, interesting landscape and architecture, a flea market, or something else that inspires my work. 

While my travels this summer involve college shopping they will take me to places that are on my bucket list. Portland is on the itinerary for Reed College and hopefully a trip to the Oregon coast for beach combing. It's rugged coastline, amazing agates and shells are my idea of heaven. Onto Seattle to visit friends and absorb the lush landscape that provides a perfect escape from the Dallas summer sauna.

Going cross country to western Massachusetts to visit Hampshire College. A visit to Mass Moca to see the Sol Lewitt exhibition will have to get worked into that somehow. 

August is NYC for business. There's a retrospective of Comme de Garcon at the Met, and finally a trip to the Noguchi Museum in Long Island City. This balances out the pain of doing a trade show. 

I'm kind of tired thinking about it. I could probably just go to the beach in Oregon and collect agates for a week; I would be completely satisfied, juice up my work and go back to the studio for the rest of the summer and design.
