Ucross, Wyoming

March 7, 2010

I spent the month of September 2009 in Wyoming at a Ucross Foundation artist residency. I am so grateful for the experience I had there—I felt by turns open and somewhat unsettled, inspired, nurtured, and productive. The natural environment, the facilities, staff, and fellow residents were all amazing, and affected me personally and artistically.

One of my fellow residents, writer Edan Lepucki, has a great article at The Millions called "The Writing Dance" on her experience at Ucross and other artist “retreats,” and on the creative process in general. And I love the parallel she draws between the processes of her writing and my “Rivers” series that I created during my four weeks in Wyoming.

Flipbook Printer from DonationCoder

March 1, 2010

When making my Following Instructions flipbooks, I was searching for a new software (my first 12 books were made using a program that only worked with an earlier version of the Macintosh operating system), and was amazed to find this donationware flipbook program offered by DonationCoder. The creator was actually living in Champaign and his site states that he was inspired to make the software because he had seen my flipbooks in a local museum. 360 degrees.
