Yes to the exuberance of working with other artists- of being in the supporting cast of another artist’s vision when its all about taking on things that are outside of your area of expertise, in a group, in public.  My singing range is limited but I was an enthusiastic member of Joe Banish’s Universal Questions of Existence Chorale in Detroit in 1982-83.

SECOND SIGHT is a 24 month project to revisit, reconnect, and share 30+ years of my own studio work (drawing, works on paper, artists books, installations) and featuring work, ephemera and  projects of other artists that have enriched my personal and working life over this time period.


Via weekly posts that move forward by linking some aspect of the previous post to the current one and using tags as a creative way to search the ongoing entries – Second Sight will grow into an alternative archive.


I invite you to join me at any and all points during this probably odd but hopefully compelling voyage.
