September, Porto Alegre
Returning to Porto Alegre in September with three Xestospongia muta (marine barrel sponges) produced in the Sponge HQ. A long day at the studio to finish the Tetilla radiata species for the installation, "Gene for an Eye." A full team of cooperating artists is convened for the work: Luciane Bucksdricker, Francesco Settineri, Arthur Lang, Marcia Braga, Ney Caminha. Marcia's husband's churrasco barbecue keeps us fed and focused. Then, back at the Usina do Gasometro, working in the "freshwater tank," to make the river sponge, Drulia browni. Finalizing the installation, seeing the exhibition, visiting and joining in the opening festivities.
