... themed sculpture and video project

... will be finished
Spring 2016
A series of seven stainless steel sculptures are being created… life sized, figurative, themed on the subject of dance.

The process of creating these sculptures will be recorded, from procuring the materials to displaying the finished pieces. It involves shooting scenes, editing video and sound, creating a short movie and showing it.

This activity is made possible with funds generously provided by the McKnight Foundation through a grant from the East Central Regional Arts Council in Minnesota.

with my dog "Suus", an energetic Black Lab cross. He takes me for a long walk every day, in winter pulls a custom built sled and soon we'll try skijoring. Squirrels, deer, other dogs... a trip with "Suus" is always a wild dog dance!#%

should be finished in late Fall 2015


... an interactive sculpture, actually a sitting bench that looks like a Viking ship and

This bench will be finished sometime in Oct. 2015... will post pictures

creates a space that will help unlock your imagination. The boat has a steel frame covered with White Oak planks, two seats, a steering oar, stem-post with figurehead, mast and sail. Being cut off at the waterline makes it look like it is floating on land. Snippets of Viking history and lore will be displayed.  When finished this ship will be moved to different publicly-accessible locations around Mora, MN.

This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the East Central Arts Council, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
