Midsummer Dream in Sweden

Posted on: Monday, June 24, 2013
















Thank you, new Swedish friends and family, for sharing in the constant light, subtle hues, and supreme organic magic of your beautiful countryside and craft heritage. This is just a sampling of images, but the seeds have definitely been planted – until next midsummer.

Toolshedding | Visual Research

Posted on: Monday, June 17, 2013


I am preparing for travel to Sweden tomorrow, so today's post will be brief. I wanted to make sure that everyone knew about my latest obsession – a simple site that I am cultivating called Toolshedding. The images collected are intended to show interesting intersections between craft, the handmade, fashion, and in some cases, installation art.

I am always open to suggestions, so please feel free to contact me with any ideas or finds that you might have. Next stop, Stockholm and Gävle, for some Midsummer's Eve festivities.

Complexity and Solidarity

I am in the midst of complex hands-on work at the moment, so this post will be more about those images and scenes that have floated into view this past week. We are all processing a lot right now with the unfolding of current events (in Turkey, specifically, as a neighbor of Bulgaria and a place where I have wonderfully talented friends), but as I gaze up at Mount Vitosha at the end of the day here in Sofia or walk along my neighborhood streets at dusk, there are signs of nature-based solidarity everywhere. It feels like the right time for change.
