This Puppet show explores narratives based on elements of the Yi-Ching Book of changes and the Divinatory system it embodies.
The main Character, Dr. Persey V. Further is a scientist specializing in the general field of Change, which ends up looking a lot like a fortune teller. They are a life size puppet made mostly out of recycled furniture parts, built around a Chandelier like core structure of a Yi-Ching Hexagram.
Partial performance elements of Perseverance Furthers participated in the Arcata PuppetSlam of 2022 and 2023.
This Sculptural Installation was part of the Junque Art show at the Morris Graves Museum of Art in Eureka CA. 2023
This large mythical dinosour/bird/beast is made with 100% recycled materials. Featuring in its belly made from a toy plastic drum turned mini atrium a Mango seed sprouting against all odds in the Belly of the Beast.
This sculptural installation at the Brenda Tuxford Gallery in Eureka was part of BackCountry MetaVerse, a group show exploring connections between AI / Virtual Realities and the ongoing degradation of our Natural Physical world.
The old scale under the fashionized Globe indicates the sad state of affairs our tangible natural world is experiencing under the weight of the Militarized trunk full of an enigmatic substance “Enforced Depletium Simplex”
It was my pleasure to conceive and curate this group show at Ink Poople Center For The Arts Brenda Tuxford Gallery in Eureka
Here is my contribution: The Shesh Besh Loom
Board games are a good way to pass time in between. And very few games hold the balance between luck and skill as delicately as Shesh Besh (aka BackGammon.) This millenia old stage is the scene of two tribes weaving in migration through eachother in opposing directions, their march dictated by the roll of a pair of dice.
A set of simple rules makes the flow of the game effortless… almost meditative… allowing the mind to wander free into other realms.
