All Consuming finally has a home! The southern end of Randall's Island, with an amazing view of the city from the middle of the East River. A perfect site.
Now the hard part: to actually make this happen, and with only 3 months and $10K to do it all! So no time to waste. I've been putting together budgets, researching materials and tools and heavy equipment. I've consulted with naturalists, engineers and architects and turf managers. I've made a thousand phone calls, a long detailed spreadsheet with extensive notes and expenses. I've made arrangements for a mini-residency at Sculpture Space in Utica to fabricate the arrow-frames. I've scheduled vacation time from my day-job at York College/CUNY (a full-time gig) to focus on the fabrication for a week in mid April. I'll take the rest of my vacation (and what ever other days I can get away with) to do the installation in May.
And there's a good chance I'll not get paid a dime for my efforts. Yeah being a New York artist is so glamorous. Welcome to the real world kiddos….
