Run-in with the police.
They were all juviniles, which is really a shame. Hopefully this gives them a little humility and, if possible, some shame. But the fact is, there are few opportunities here. Turns out a friend of mine says the burgler had come to his resteraunt looking for a dishwashing job and was turned down. What's kid to do? I wish I had a good answer. I don't have my stuff back yet but I do have a good story. There's actually something kind of dear about it isn't there?- like a welcome party thrown by the local vandals... Anyway I'm happy to be home. And I'm glad it's not me in the slammer.
Tim Holmes Studio
- 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
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.
