Today is my 1 year anniversary of moving to New York. I love it here.
Today is also the day I start my first art residency, at The Wassaic Project in Wassaic, NY.
My friend Joe graciously offered to assist me and be my co-pilot driving up there. We rented a car and packed up all my fabric and sequins and bike and clothes, and drove 2 hours out of the city to Wassaic, arriving just in time for dinner.
We made a mini-video-series documenting our road trip! I love it. Watching this is almost like hanging out with us along the trip – being right there in the car talking about art, relationships, snacks, friendship, the pursuit of happiness…. really great stuff here. A lovely portrait of a friend, and of a time of transition — moving into a new realm of art making and living in new york!!
(don’t worry I edited it so you don’t have to sit through all of our blabbering….)
