The Tarantismo Summit Art Show 2013 blazed by a couple weekends ago at Chris Ilth’s Ravens Nest. I was offered a space to set up an installation/photo booth of sorts for the entire weekend and the cargo elevator seemed like the perfect little spot to roll a tree stump into, lay some sod, and let the smoke rise. The place was jammed with all kinds of eye bulging art from way-out and underground musician types like Jimbo Easter, Mac Blackout, Ben Lyon, Christopher Ilth and so many more. A few people commented on how much they liked the “nature installation”. I was genuinely thrilled to inform them that it was a photo booth and that they should have a seat on the stump and let me work my magic. It was a wonderful weekend! I’ll be setting up another installation later this summer at a gallery space in Logan Square. More details soon!
