What an honor to be involved in LAMAG's 2016 Open Call: Play!
My first re-commissioned PedalBump sculpture was pefect for this show where local artists interpreted the theme in myriad ways. The Nebula PedalBump was ridden, bumped and crashed by hundreds of laughing joyous people in bumper car derby races at Burning Man. Re-commissioned as a freestanding sculpture it now brings delight to all who pass by.
Stay tuned for more re-comissioned PedalBumps!

This recycled fashion show exhibition was the perfect match for my latest sculpture: The Future Will Arrive at Mach 5. Upcycled from the de-comissioned Mach 5 PedalBump (Original by Kevin Bourque), this fashion inspired creature embodies the speed and grace of the original Mach 5 bumper car and gazes back on the present with future secrets in mind. Many thanks to the amazing team at the Escondido Arts Partnership!
