I’m in Seattle today, getting ready to install one of the 3 sculptures I created for Eileen Fisher. Drinking a big coffee and reflecting back on my summer residency, I feel a bit melancholy that it’s nearly over. The Eileen Fisher team generously gave me studio space in their Tiny Factory to create the work. Situated in their warehouse, surrounded by endless amounts of second-hand clothing, I was right at home:

As an added bonus, The Tiny Factory is located in a building that was built for Cosmopolitan Magazine in 1895. It was designed by Stanford White, a notorious art star of the gilded age (I love his shop coat and ‘stache!)

Sadly, the other side of the building, which looked pretty much the same as this side, was chiseled off and faced with ordinary red brick. Someday I will try to find out how and why that happened.
