I received a prestigious award from the university to travel with Alice this summer and finish off the series "Wish You Were Here." I'll be soliciting suggestions on places to take her in the south and east. Going to be fun!
I'm proud to be showing my work in the project space of Harcourt House in Alberta, Canada this summer! This will be the first time Wish You Were Here will be shown in large format!
Wish You Were Here has been selected to be a part of a juried one-year "drawers" exhibit at Blue Sky Gallery in Portland Oregon. Neat!
Oouph... I hate news update sites that are not updated.
In October, The Distinction Between Being Grounded and Airborne was screened as part of the show "Whistling in the Dark" in the Shoreditch Town Hall in London. Cool! Except I couldn't be there. :(
I just received word that "Whistling in the Dark" will be screened again at the ARI Kings Gallery in Melbourne, Australia. Yay!
In honor of several proposals I sent out, i finally updated my website (after two years!!). Check out the new Projects on my Project page.
I have been working on a community-relations project with the Montana Women's Prison. Here are the links to the entries about it.
Live in the Northcutt Steele Gallery this Friday night, in conjunction with the Faculty Exhibition, Kristen Wilkins will present a new performance work about anxiety, longing and regret. The performance will take place within an installation of failed embroidery linens, drawings, photographs of crayon-drawn portraits, and archaic communication equipment, which will remain on view for the duration of the exhibit. Wilkins’ Friday performance will add components to the installation in a kind of compulsive creation without regard to craft. Using the last overhead projector available from Audio Visual Services, she will attempt to complete drawings her father made fifty-five years ago. Interspersed with these live-projector-drawings, Wilkins will also type free-form poems inspired by framed drawings of happy children.
I've been working on a landscape series for the last two years, which has appeared periodically on my various blogs, but isn't cataloged in the website. Here are some new images that would be in that section if I got around to making that section.
The following images are sketches for a new project. There are several artists who have done similar work, but I am interested in the domestic architecture, the voyeurism of the open windows, the variety of color in light, the ability of digital cameras to allow me to hand-hold night shots...
My collaborator, Jeff Eisenberg, is having a show at Swarm Gallery. Some of our pieces we made together will also be there. If you're in the Bay area, check it out!
I have failed to update the "updates" section!!
In addition to adding a "Performance" section on the main website, I have had a wonderful exhibition, "Stake Your Claim!!", in collaboration with Jeff Eisenberg, under the name M0bile Pr4ctice. M0bile Pr4ctice will be producing more work in the future, so stay tuned.
One of the showcases of this exhibit (at the Eric Dean Gallery) was a video game installation, programmed by yours truly, and conceived by M0bile Pr4ctice. Above is an installation view. More to come online soon.
This summer, I will be driving across the country in a 1964 Avion trailer. Follow along as I perform my journey on Twitter and on Streamin' Dreamin'.
The Divas Show at Robert V. Fullerton Museum has been extended until the end of the school year. Check it out!
Another year! What exciting things will happen? Time will tell!
The installation for "All Good Things..." has come down. It took four days to build and two hours to strike. That's show biz!
I am in the process of boxing up and shipping "Rapt in the Nameless Reverie" to Cochran, Georgia to open at the end of the month.
See a sneak preview of "All Good Things Will Come to You Soon." Check back later for a description of the project.
A reminder that Darkroom Divas, the group show at the Robert V. Fullerton Museum will be opening September 25 through December 13.
My video installation, "The Distinction Between Being Grounded and Airborne," will premiere at the upcoming KY7 Biennial in Lexington, Kentucky. The show runs from October 18- December 21.
The series, "Rapt in the Nameless Reverie," will be on display in a solo exhibition at the Peacock Gallery in Cochran, Georgia in January of 2009.
And don't forget the solo exhibition Time is Eternity that will go up October 27 in the Eric Dean Gallery, Crawfordsville, Indiana. This exhibition will feature the photo series "Rapt in the Nameless Reverie" and premiere my new video installation "All Good Things Will Come to You Soon."

On the Saatchi Online Gallery, I was picked by Ana Finel Honigman as her Critic's Choice of the Week! Um... last week. Somehow, I didn't know!
