OPEN HOUSE 'hinges' on your support!

Support: We have created a house that opens up and transforms into a 100 community theater. Yep, thats right... a transforming theater here in York, Alabama as a public art work for the community here. We are funded by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Visual Artsits Network, however, recently an unexpected cost came up that is preventing us from finishing the last phase of the project. We cranked out a video and now have a Indiegogo campaign and wanted to know if you could help us spread the word. Thanks so much for your time

Park Spark Project

Project: Aug 2010

Installing the Park Spark project involving methatne digesters in dog parks
The Park Spark Project is the transformation of dog waste (dog poo) into energy (methane) through a publicly fed methane digester as an interactive urban intervention that questions our current waste system, and at the same time creates an opportunity for others to participate in the (re)imaging of the byproduct energy (methane).

Project: "Steeped In Exploration" -the Netherlands - March - April 2010 - is a teahouse powered by a methane digester in a remote community in the Netherlands. The digester transforms cow manure into methane gas, which will be burned to boil water for tea. Steeped In Exploration is an invitation to the local people to join me on public outings to gather edible plants from the local landscape to make tea. Funded by the Peer Group Show runs outside March 15th-April 5th 2010 (Smalle Ee, NL) then goes to De Galerij (Gallery) April 11th - May 30th (Drachten, NL)
