The Early Morning Redness in the East

100 x 72 cm

Not For Sale

Part of an ongoing series of CGIs entitled “The Artist’s Studio as Encryption Lab,” mostly reconstructions of my apartment turned virtual memory architecture, this one with an erupting Mt. Vesuvius and a Fedora hat floating in the Gulf of Naples.   Video artist & friend Dieter Froese used to wear such hats. As did botanist Frank N. Meyer, bringer of the callery pear from its native China to the U.S in the late 1800s. In his photographs, he sometimes placed the hat next to exotic plants to gauge their size. He died an untimely death in the Yangtze River - whether by accident, suicide or murder remains unsettled.
