Several other minor works seem to be possibly coalescing into a group I am tentatively calling Appendages. In some of my past work (especially the Parallax series), I have wondered if I am being too didactic. I just love the scenarios of wonder that those works, in particular, are derived from and want to share their stories in accompanying writing. Art lovers always have an individual choice whether or not to read paired texts, so it is not inherent in the works themselves that I feel this, but in how I have exhibited these works that lead me to this query.

One group of new works is derived from ideas of inherent human attraction presented in The Evolution of Desire: Strategies of Human Mating by David M. Buss.

The works are crafted out of vintage pornographic magazine images reformed using numerous origami butterfly patterns.  

Oh yeah. I was invited to a little mail art show at the Katonah Museum of Art in Katonah, New York buy my good friend Thomas Doyle. I made some Celluloid Transmutation-esque postcard pieces based on short films I love.
