Movieland comes a-calling

I am flattered to report that an Austrian filmmaker has decided to make a film about my work!  Karin Wally has been in art museums and in the Austrian film business for a long time, but this is to be her first full-length documentary.  As well as doing some filming at Pygmalion Theater and my flat we have gone to meet her producers at Cinecraft (pictured), who are great guys, too.  We are also filming a segment at Sch√∂nbrunn palace gardens, (just down the street from me!)  In a couple weeks the crew is flying to St. Petersburg to film an interview in the Hermitage Museum with one of the curators I worked with when I had my exhibition there, Sergie Androsov.  Furthermore they will be coming to Montana this summer to film some more in my studio and surroundings. So cool!    ... I also just did a fabulous interview– maybe the best I've ever done– with  Kevin Hatton, who runs an in-depth arts site out of Ireland called Remote Viewing, which can be listened to here.  The interview will run in July.

I'm a sculptor/filmmaker living in Montana, USA. I am using art to move the evolution of humanity forward into an increasingly responsive, inclusive and interactive culture. As globalization flattens peoples into a capitalist monoculture I hope to use my art to celebrate historical cultural differences and imagine how we can co-create a rich future together.

I see myself as an artist/philosopher laboring deep in the mines of joy. I've had a good long career of exhibiting work around the world and working on international outreach projects, most notably being the first American to be invited to present a one-person exhibit in the Hermitage Museum. Recently I have turned my attention from simply making metal sculpture to creating films and workshops for engaging communities directly, tinkering with the very ideas and mechanisms behind cultural transformation. I feel that as we face tragic world crises, if the human species favors our imaginative and creative capacities we can cultivate a rich world to enjoy.

For me the deepest satisfaction in making art comes in engaging people's real life concerns rather than providing simple entertainment or decoration. Areas of conflict or tension are particularly ripe for the kind of transformative power that art uniquely carries. I invite any kind of challenge that serves people on a deep level.
