I got to see my father's heart today and listen to it beating.
I got to see into his stomach yesterday.

I am in New Hampshire
in and out of the White Mountains
it is spring and
I think it is beautiful.

I meant to write this before I left Omaha, but it didn't work out that way.

I am now back in Western Mass. I left Omaha on Friday, April 30th. The last week at the Bemis was a flurry of activity, friends, cleaning, moving, packing, and documenting. I am now working with video footage that I recorded while at the Bemis Center and will hopefully have something cohesive to pull together.

Saturday Joshua and I went out to Mass MOCA. Maybe I have said this before, but I love Mass MOCA so much. I love the buildings, I really appreciate and am excited by the work that they exhibit, and I like going out to the Berkshires. I think it may have been the last weekend for the Guy Ben-Ner videos so I was really glad to catch them one more time before they left. Right now in the galleries are Material World, InVisible: Art at the Edge of Perception, and Gravity is a Force to be Reckoned With (IƱigo Manglano-Ovalle). At Kidspace they are celebrating their 10th year anniversary with Delectable Decade: Kidspace Retrospective and You Art What You Eat. And there is the ongoing Sol LeWitt: A Wall Drawing Retrospective.

I instantly was attracted to
Orly Genger's Big Boss, which is apart of Material World. It is large, red, and undulating. The piece starts out as neatly stacked large crocheted rope "sheets" that create a wall that breaks through a gallery wall to spill out and create a sea rolling material.

I am very excited because on May 29th Petah Coyne: Everything That Rises Must Converge opens.
