40 gestures, 40 days, 40 years

Back in the spring, friend and Seattle poet Melanie Noel and I worked this idea of sculptural poetry. Together we imagined that this kind of hive could be, contain and reveal a poem, much as a real hive might be built by, house and reveal its bees. This sculpture would conceal a small audio recorder and spill the words from within, hanging mostly solitary in a space. I continue to be enchanted with the idea of bringing this piece to live in multiple dimensions: as a linear written piece that wraps itself into volume and then penetrates the aural.

You may be the luckiest person alive to see the world in the way that you do, and to be able to turn your thoughts into such beautiful works of art.

Best wishes to you for a happy birthday!
