We Outta Here

As you know, we aren’t just taking a boat trip.  We are driving 3,038 miles across the entire continent, spending a month on the river, hosting four boat open houses along the way, giving numerous artist talks, opening a major exhibition in NYC with dozens of new photos, new media elements, video projection, hosting another exhibition across the East River in Brooklyn, and then we are driving back. So…

3,038 miles to Whitehall, NY

That means that our TODO list is off the hook. So our original intention was to leave on Saturday. But here it is Tuesday morning and we are just pulling away from the Redwood House.

You haven’t heard much from us in the last few because we were consumed by all the preparations.

Benzy and I stayed up until 1am last night hemming the edges of the prints for the exhibition. More than 100 feet of hem total. We were stupid delirious near the end but it looks amazing.

We’ll post a few updates from the road. If you live anywhere along hwy 80 or 90 between the SF Bay Area and upstate NY, give us a shout out and maybe we’ll camp the shantyboat in your driveway.
