Post»September, MCA & DIA shows

Its been a busy month. Have been trying whenever I can to add more projects to the site. Its a slow but enjoyable process. Obviously trying to keep the site simple and easy to use. Trying to maximize relevancy and efficiency of information presented. There is so much content on the Internet, I am trying to add no more than is needed. How much more is needed? I don't know. Not too much. Just enough. The Internet is becoming this battle of content, drive traffic, be fresh, compete with other content, have the most, link smarter, rank high, digest, republish, push, feed. More. I hope I am not smothered by YouTube clips, MySpace jamsters, RSS dumps, RE Blogs, podcasts, keyword generators. I hope I can survive the big wave! "Less is More" may lead to failure...

This month I was juried into a show entitled 'Best of Colorado' at the Denver International Airport. I am happy that a canvas painting was recognized for this competitive exhibition (not my technology work). I attempt to divide my time equally between painting/drawing and software/technology. Sometimes this is possible, other times not - lately the gadgets have been winning. The painting entitled Datavis 1 will be on display in the DIA terminal until January 2007. It is in the main atrium, upstairs, just north of the food court, in case you are flying. I am especially happy that Burger King Whoppers can be purchased almost within reach of the painting. While a few of the 75 artists in the terminal, most of this show is in Concourse A, and it looks fantastic, but you need a boarding pass to see it.

I also have a software installation on view this fall. I was thrilled to be invited to the current group show at the Denver Museum of Contemporary Art. The show is part two of a Colorado artists retrospective entitled 'Decades of Influence: Remix'. I am showing a version of The Color Channel piece. This show is on view until January 2007. It includes some great Colorado artists such as Clark Richert, Lawrence Argent, Patti Hallock, John DeAndrea, Jim Green, Mary Ehrin, Bruce Price, Stacy Seers, and Matthew Larson.

My art is for sale in both exhibitions. Contact Me or Rule Gallery if you are interested in buying something.
