Crazy Multiply – Archaioposterus – my first art show

Last weekend my photography was featured in Crazy Multiply’s art show, Archaioposterus!  After submitting almost 50 photos the curators picked 3 of my shots from Son Doong for Archaioposterus.  It was my first show and I can’t wait to join Crazy Multiply as they bring artists together a few times a year for a wonderful night of art and music.

Imagine for a moment that you are walking into Yogiga’s basement venue you were greeted with my photos immediately to your right and a nominal 5,000won($5) entry fee on your left.  If you were lucky enough to arrive early the venue was a nice quiet space to enjoy the art at your leisure.  Maybe even with one of the delicious craft brews or premixed gin & tonics for sale.

First you loop clockwise around the basement passing curator Marina Carsten’s unique embroidery on tobacco and other leafy DNA photos.  (find more of her art here http://marinacarstensart.tumblr.com/)  If they peak your interest they can be found on sale at the merch table in the back. _DSC4343

Next up is a celestial series mimicking a deep blue night sky.  Many patrons stood contemplated whether these pieces were based on real constellations or simply a figment of artist, Megan Ratliff’s imagination.  Pausing for a moment you can’t decide but know that you love the series.  It gets you thinking about the deeper complexities of the universe.

Korea Burn ’14 – Part 1

Korea Burn was my first Burning Man festival.  In fact it was my first hippie festival of any kind and it was phenomenal!   It was a weekend full of free-spirited art and emotion as people bonded through music and dance.  Body paint and unique sculptures were just accents to the costumes flaunted everywhere.

One of the key components to Burning Man is a distinct lack of currency.  Many people bring gifts ranging from handmade bracelets to food, booze or even t-shirts.  Others developed games with prizes and challenges that had us all laughing and loving each other.  I brought my camera and a notepad that I filled with fortunes; anyone who’s photo I took I gave a personalized fortune.

Enjoy the first half of the photos!  Part 2 will be out shortly…
