Bridgewater State University invited Kenji Nakayama and I to do a short residency at their main gallery on campus a while back. We transformed the gallery into our studio for a week, working days and nights creating a series of large collaborative pieces and several individual pieces which we presented in a formal gallery setting at the end of the week.
The opening was great, but it was even better interacting with students and faculty as we worked throughout the week. The informality of the interactions and the questions/insights from observing our process felt much more intimate than the usual gallery feedback.
Photos from of the finished work at the opening are below, and you can see some cropped/balanced shots of all the final pieces in my portfolio section under Collabos.
Thanks much to Jay at BSU for inviting us down there! It was a great experience, one we will not soon forget.
