Road Trip: San Antonio to McAllen, Texas


In a little over two years, I drove more than 35,000 freeway miles: all of them along the same 250-mile stretch of coastal plains and tropics that lay in deep South Texas. Saying that I am not severely bored with the drive would be an understatement; it was one heck of a commute.

Moving the Wedges


Artist Mark Cloet. I didn’t take this image, too bad Marc is looking away. 🙂

Video of Cloet’s exhibit at the International Museum of Art & Science.

This video depicts director and curator Joseph Bravo arranging the “Wedges” at the exhibit. Visitors were encouraged to move maquettes of the “Wedges”, and periodically Bravo or Cloet would come by and move the large “Wedges” in the same arrangement. This is what Bravo is doing in the video. The “Wedges” were made of sheets of steel cut and welded together. Notice at the end of the video how Joe “appears” from behind the wedge like it is a telephone booth… and he’s Superman with iphone on ear.  Makes me smile.
