migration...

from otto piene's more sky

from otto piene's 1970 book, more sky:

migration: migrating artworks or groups of artworks can float or swim like fish, fly like cranes, or fade like the setting sun. migrating man carries portable electronic charms and receives universally spread tele-information. migrant apparitions could be planted into the sky like wandering clouds of snow.

i'm leaving this morning on a 3 day drive to banner wyoming for a residency, where i will spend the next four weeks with 5 other artists on a 1000 very cold acres, with my own tiny studio. yes, i will be bringing my portable electronic charms, and will be able to receive universally spread tele-information (on my computer but fortunately not on my phone!). i plan on also wandering like a cloud of snow (as there will indeed be many of them).

there's a good chance airforms will be heavy on the text and light on the vintage photographs while i'm gone, as i won't be receiving things in the mail, and there don't seem to be any flea markets near where i'm staying... nevertheless between the very large box of books that i'm bringing and the amount of landscape i'll be ingesting, i will certainly find at least a few nuggets to share.
