Wherever

Wherever I am, at whatever place

On earth, I hide from people

The conviction that I’m not from here.

It’s as if I’d been sent,

to extract as many,

Colors, tastes, sounds smells, to experience,

Everything that is a man’s share,

to transpose what was felt,

Into a magical register,

and carry it there,

From whence I came.

Itching for a thought-provoking cinematic experience but dreading the astronomical prices that New Yorkers pay to go to the theater? Grab some popcorn and head over to the 14th Street Passage on the High Line to see Adrian Paci’s trio of video works now on view (for free!). Paci’s three works – The Encounter (2011), PilgrIMAGE (2005) and Turn On (2004) – are inspired by both Paci’s tumultuous biography and broader, more global topics of identity as shaped by politics and socio-economics. With only two weeks left to see the short films, we thought we would highlight how these three videos relate to Paci’s fascinating biography and captivating career.

For the last few months Minn of the Mississippi [1951] has been our bedtime reading. If you can get your hands on a copy, I really recommend it ~ some of the information is outdated, but it’s a really engaging read filled with river stories and facts. Colin and I both learned a ton from this little book!

A web search of the author reveals that in addition to writing amazingly detailed nature stories for children, Holling C. Holling also had a regular newspaper feature inviting readers to cut and paste their own educational dioramas.

Colin & I are thrilled to be bringing this new project to the Creative Time Summit in New York October 25th & 26th. #ShadowSummit is both a physical platform and a network-building project that will happen in parallel to the official Summit program of panels and presentations. The theme of the Summit is Art, Place & Dislocation in the 21st Century City, so we expect there will be a lot to discuss!

We’re working with the architects/designers at rogueBUILT in Brooklyn to create some big beautiful sandwich boards that will be used at the conference to enable the self-organizing and sharing of conversations and activities as they emerge.

Folks watching the Summit live stream can also take part from anywhere in the world. Follow the #ShadowSummit for updates from the backchannel.

I just listed our new 1976 Winnebago Minnie Winnie on Airbnb: City Camping in a Vintage Winnebago

Maybe you can tell that we’re completely making this whole thing up as we go? I have no idea how to do this, what to charge or what sort of trouble we’re inviting, but I figured what the hell?! We should share our love of Minneapolis-St. Paul and our love of the Minnie Winnie. And if we can earn a little scratch in the process, that’s great.

So … are you planning a trip to Minneapolis? Need a city camping staycation? An extra room in your yard for visiting family?

Be our Minnie Winnie guest. Updated pictures coming soon.
