Hello!

Yup, that's me. Right Side of the Brain (Left Side when needed), Left Coast creative specializing in minimilizing ideas so that the average user/observer understands it, no matter what 'it' is.

Not afraid to take chances or learn something new.

Areas I Do It In

image_1

All surfaces and spaces be warned.

Simplify the Idea

image_1

In any form or medium the simplification process or the breaking down of the idea to its purest and most natural form can be a daunting task. But when solved can create a thing of beauty.

To be able to take a step or two back from what is placed in front of you and see the bigger picture trough the eyes of the user or viewer. To be honest with yourself and question if, when, what, how, why and who repeatedly and not get discouraged by having to start over. To test and collect information, and then go back and make changes. Test again and then repeat if necessary.

Failure is a good thing. Embrace it. Success is short lived. Embrace it also.

Choosing a Medium

image_1

When we begin to think of the changing ways of communicating ideas, there looks to be no end in sight on how this will be done.

As our hand held devices become as powerful as a laptop, the question arrises: what does this do to how we design?

Flash, CSS, HTML5, APK, iOS, Android, Nokia, Windows… Screen Size, Screen Resolution… Swipe, Click, Double Tap… Media Tags, Responsive Design, Fluid Layouts, the 960 Grid… Yes Please!

Sales of Smart Phones, Tablets and Notebooks are outselling what has become a household standard in Desk and Lap Top computers. In the last 4 years we have seen this incredible jump in technology and I find myself asking "what next?"

The future looks to be a challenging and exciting place to be.

Right Brain Project

I was approached by RACC (Regional Arts and Culture Council) to see if I could come up with an idea on how to have a student show that would travel throughout the region for 6 to 9 months. I have always wanted to use those moving PODS for something, and this was the project. A mobile (as well as storable) gallery that contained 3 monitor stations as well as listening areas.

Casual Construction

A two month show created out of painted pallets. The viewer was invited to move, stand or play with any of the 24 pallets. During the second month, the viewer was invited to become the artist by sketching out what they would do if they had 24 pallets at their disposal. Two ideas were then picked and created, lasting about two weeks each. At the end of the show, pallets were placed curbside, picked up and put back into shipping rotation.

The Love Show

Massive group show by Launch Pad Gallery in Portland. 100+ artists created works that were housed in a refurbished industrial warehouse and shown during the month of February. The piece you see here was created from six rings of plastic cups that sat on top of each other. It was one of the only floor pieces to be submitted to the show which made for an interesting place for children to play in.

Words Without Walls

This was a Caldera Arts inspired project working with students between the ages of 13-17. The project included a television wall which displayed videos created by the students; a 'Pod' wooden structure that projected the students poems and videos simultaneously; students poems printed on clear overhead projector plastic (this made the words hard to see unless something was behind the poem like a hand or a piece of paper). Shown at the W+K building in Portland and gallery space in Redmond.

Stores were completely bought out of cups and bowls for this project which consisted of pieces numbered in the thousands came in only 4 colors. Pieces included standing flower like objects (as seen here) to what I like to call a 'poor mans Chihuli' chandelier composed of over five hundred pieces.

Tiger Woods

A collaborative project with artist John Larsen. The idea was centered around the name Tiger Woods. The hole was a collection of abandoned pallets that were cut up into pieces and arranged to look like a tiger. The space itself was filled with a yellow glow to give the feeling of being in the bright sun of the Serengeti. This was my third Holocene Mini Putt Putt where past holes included an outhouse and a minimal one putt hole. Look for a new Tiger Woods at the Boca Raton Museum of Art in July 2012.

String Project

Several string projects exist throughout the city of Portland. Two office buildings have permanent pieces that measure over twenty-five feet long and three feet wide of rich colored string and thread. This thread is wrapped over and over to create thick bands of color that resemble ribbon. This tactile project is constantly touched by viewers investigating what material was used to create these wall pieces. Smaller versions which were called 'Portables' were also created around the larger pieces.

NoPdxAntiCon

Now in its 5th year with just over 1500 Santas and still true to the cause. A couple of weeks prior to the announcement that Portland Santacon was being held out in Hillsboro (2008), a plan was conceived of holding our own version in North Portland. In the mass confusion of where the con was being held and us as a group only expecting about 75 Santa's was quite an eye opener for the businesses as well as our changing our plans on the fly of the days events. By the first watering hole we had 200+, by the second 300+, by the third 500+, then we stopped counting. Promoting the event was all done through Wordpress and word of mouth.
