Sword of the Sun - Milwaukee

Installation views of Sword of the Sun in the Perspectives Gallery at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design this past spring. Huge thanks to Jon Horvath for the invitation and installation. I asked Jon to arrange the circular table of objects in the spirit of collaboration. Many thanks to MIAD recent graduate, Danny McCullough, for taking pictures of the show (I'm pretty sure that is his hand their in the second image). I love how this work evolves and shifts with each new gallery space. New works mingle with older pieces, table arrangements are always in flux from one show to the next. The first version of this work came together in 2014 at the Law Warschaw Gallery at Macalester College in St. Paul. I made a book version of this work as well. The book was an experiment in translating the spirit of the work into book form rather than simply making a catalog of the work from the St. Paul installation.
