I am flattered to announce that my piece, "Insinuated Map with Sound of Flight Paths" was selected for the Smithtown Township 32nd Annual Juried Fine Arts Exhibition to be held at Mills Pond House Gallery in New York.
The Juror was Joan Young of the Guggenheim Museum.
Thank you Ms Young!

Mills Pond House Gallery in St. James New York
is part of a series that is indicative of the Map as Object,
which incorporates conceptual innuendos of action and reading that engage in the viewers own perception of place.
Inherent messages are implied with minor clues that are reminiscent of socio-political relationships and feelings that enhance a story.
Specifically, the piece is shot with a 45 caliber hand-gun. The flight paths are calculated by randomly selecting locations from an atlas using the letters s-o-u-n-d as reference points.
A gun gives you the body, not the bird. - Henry David Thoreau
