During a two month residency at Bains::Connective in Brussels based on the theme Nomadic Structures, I cataloged all of my ideas and what became of them.

05/2007-08/2007
*As if watching clouds drift by.
-Return to Rome where I photographed Bangladeshi Illegal Immigrants, compare and contrast our respective paths over the last five years.
=my past dissappeared somewhere in Rome and resulted in The picture that I was too shy... to make 13 years ago.

07/2007-10/2007
*The Long Walk
-Work on documentation from a 650k walk across Norway in the Summer of 2007
=made one image for a show at whyandwherefore.com, beginnings.

07/2007-10/2007
*One from the East, One from the West
-compare and contrast my immigration from the west with someone who immigrated to europe from the east
=he never replied to my questions

09/2007-21/10/2007
*Sunsight and Sunclipse
-Two terms coined by Buckminster Fuller to replace Sunrise and Sunset. Contrary to popular belief, the sun doesn't move across the sky, the earth rotates. Thus, our language is 500 years behind in coordinating our senses with our knowledge.
=some how turned into a Geodesic dome

09/10/2007
*Song Line String Theory
-Strings tied across the banister of the upper level using a mathematical equation to determine their placement.
=just forgot about it.

09-15/10/2007
*Geodesic Dome Construction
-Became interested in the writings and interviews of Buckminster Fuller.
=started playing with tape

09/10/2007-present
*Taping perspectives
-Using the two dimensional view of a camera to create a perspective that in actuality is false (see blog).
=seemed to function as a catalyst for new thoughts

11/10/2007-present
*Something Amusing and Clever
-In a conversation with Elie Rabinovitch I said that I just wanted to make something amusing and clever.
=couldn't figure that one out

12-14/10/2007
*Framed reality
-Picture frame cut-outs placed on the street to create the impression that reality was merely a photograph
=too complicated and procrastination

16/10/2007-15/11/2007
*Three movements
-Triptych video images of three differing movements through space-time
=Learned to use Final Cut “Pro”, the images didn't work together as well as I imagined and technical problems

18/10/2007
*Various Walks
-Create different walks in order to perceive space differently, not so different from the Situationists International's idea of a Derive.
=I know where I would live in Brussels, and if asked, I can find a white rabbit and a top hat.

23/10/2007
*Steps in the Right direction
-asked several people where a step in the right direction would lead them
=couldn't figure out a coherent way to display the correspondence

27/10-05/112007

-A slide show presentation for Pecha Kucha, an elitist designer convention using only slide projectors.
=Couldn't be bothered to spend time making something didactic.

10-13/11/2007
*Existential Crisis
- the questioning of my existence here in the residency.
=found out that everyone else is going through an existential crisis too.

11/11/2007
*Nomadic Structures as thought processes
-Powerpoint presentation on my thought process during the residency here in Brussels.
=I really didn't want to "perform" anything

11/11/2007
*Disassemblage/Assemblage
-Taking apart a camper van and rebuilding it in Bains::Connective
=Just a fleeting thought

14-19/11/2007
*Enter Faust into the Congo Museum
-An absurd photograph from the Congo Museum absurdly large mounted as a light box in a constructed room in Bain::Connective(see blog).
=Couldn't justify bringing that large of an object into the world.

05:53 20/11/2007
*Simplicity in a Carousel
-Simply, a representation of my thought processes

Plankton bar presentation:
*Correspondence
13 Loose laminated letter correspondences from A step in the right direction
Distributed on tables in the Lounge.

*Theatrical Dwelling
3.5x 3.5x 2.5 meter triangle of black felt curtains.
During the three days before the Presentation I slept only 9 hours (9 of 84 hours), On the night of Plankton Bar, I finished my room off with a my bed and covers from home. With the curtain closed, a small opening was
made at the end of the triangle, lit from within. Inside, a slide carousel turns within a spot light, alternately displaying
the worlds, "Freedom" and "Determinism". Slept for a total of 16 hours and woke very refreshed to a
sunny brussels morning. Memories of Mariane Cosserat straddling me from behind and jumping while Domenico laughed hysterically, Christina Clar placing an envelope beside me, and saying good bye to Bettina Wind.
