"You just think lovely, wonderful thoughts and up you'll go."

Still trying to sneeze out the remainder of a cold & still up in beautiful Troy NY for Brent's residency! While I am on the mend Brent is doing every crazy thing from testing out brain controlled flying machines (seriously?) to painstakingly hand drawing animated frames picture by picture. Speaking of flying (?)...Gravity had it's Spanish premier at the Punto De Vista International Documentary Film Festival of Navarra (congrats to all the winners there!) a little while back! And the upcoming British premier is just around the corner at the (seemingly awesome) Flatpack Festival in Birmingham happening at the end of this month! And, to make us even more worldly, our South American premier is set for next month at the Buenos Aires Festival Internacional de Cine Independiente (BAFICI!)!

Also recently came across this beautiful article written by a grad student in Arizona who saw the Gravity set when it was installed out there in the desert (pictures by Olya of the set in Arizona seen here). Their take on our project was stunning and so full of ideas I too have had about Gravity- specifically relating it to the concept of "...works of art that concern themselves with other human lives is the way multiple 'personal adventures'—those of the subjects, the artist, and the observers of the artwork—become braided." A layering that I find inherent in Brent's work and a very, very important part of cultural understanding and progress, building our lives through & with eachothers is the very foundation of art to me. But, all this might be, as Emily says, my feverbrain talking...! Quiet you feverbrain, quiet! Vitamin C anyone? (falls asleep on keyboard)
