I make small, anonymous and slightly magical packages which I leave - one critic called it gifting - across the world; over 4,000 in the USA, UK, France, Cuba, Cambodia, Turkey, Germany, and Australia. My belief is a return to what I feel has been lost in art; surprise, chance, enchantment and a desire to replace art as commodity through interactivity and community. 

If you found one of my works I would love to hear all about it email metweet or instagram

Will-O-The-Wisp Magic Numbers a 2013 AiOP Project
200 tiny lights glowing in red, green, blue, orange or yellow made from LEDs, sparkly beads, liquid plastic, magnets and a little plastic box are being placed along 14th Street from Union Square to 8th Avenue nighty in groups of 20 to be gathered. These little lights with their numbers on the front represent that delusive or misleading hope that somehow with the evoking of a magic number all our dreams will come true.

If you found a Will-O-The-Wisp box. Click on YOUR magic number below and see what it really means! Then email, tweet or instagram and tell me all about finding your work and your magic number. See Me!

(Hey, if you want to reserve the light in your Wisp just open the box and un-tape it. Cool huh? If your battery runs out don't just throw it away. Recycle. AND, if you want to light your number back up Bed Bath and Beyond sells the batteries.)

Fifty-ninth series: shawabits, ed. 365 

I was in the Egyptian wing of the Metropolitan the other day and happened upon tiny turquoise statues called shawabits. They were created, one for each day of the year, and placed in the tomb to answer questions the dead pharaoh would need to ask once he awakens. I created my own from the casting of a small votive first communion figure I found in a Catholic supply shop in Louisville, a bit of paint, and some found objects – thread, string, trinkets, bells, beads, etc. They will be placed on top of ledges, tucked in corners, looking down on you from overhead beams throughout the subway stations, museums and streets - watching, waiting, there to ask and answer questions, beginning in late August.

Fifty-fifth series, Pilgrimage SeashellsA pilgrimage is a journey or search for moral or spiritual significance typically to shrine or other location to a person's beliefs and faith. It can be to a holy land like Jerusalem or Mecca or a visit to sites within a region or locale. I am using my pilgrimages for discovery and re-evaulation. I have devised a few paths to take and I will mark them as I journey. I have borrowed the seashell imagery of the Camino de Santiago (The Way of St. James or St. James' Way) in Spain for this project. I cast various shells have gathered on my travels, scallops, cockles, conches in liquid plastic and attached them to a bit of handmade or Japanese paper highlighting them with a bit of paint.
Did you see one? Tell me about your discovery.
