I had heard a lot of talk recently about the dirt cheep properties located in and around Detroit and started seriously entertaining the idea of what life would be like living there. When I found out that friends Monica Canilao, Harrison, Ben Wolf, and Swoon  had been invited to do a project with Power House Productions and Juxtapose magazine, it was the perfect opportunity to get down there and check it out for myself. $100 House ABC News

The photos of the remnants of abandoned buildings of Detroit city remind me of the desolate scapes of Chernobyl, beautiful decay and silence. Detroit seen here through the eyes of french photographers Yves Marchand and Romain Meffre who will be publishing this and other images in their upcoming book entitled “The Ruins of Detroit” (December 2010)


Pictured above is the blue house which has now been named “The Treasure Nest” in a certain stage of progress. So free and magical, an almost utopic idea come to fruition, creating a living breathing artwork, social sculpture. I’m so excited to be a part of building this project, this house, this neighborhood, this city….. when I saw it my mind started racing and hasn’t stopped. Above photo taken by Todd Seelie. I’m sure you will be hearing more about this project as it develops and if you are interested in visiting Detroit and or joining this project please leave a comment!

Faster, stronger, laster, longer! When I took my ride on the Regurgitator I went crazy fast but not long enough to vomit.

Doyle’s style of sculpture/performance/interactive art is something that has to be experienced and felt in person. His art gives off a very powerful energy that does not translate very well through print or even video formats. Doyle uses materials that have already lived an entire life previous to becoming part of his artwork which gives the pieces an eerie lingering soul that almost attaches to you during an interaction.

I was on tour with some Black Labels in Miami. The Cast: Doyle – artist and builder extraordinaire and the hugest member of Black Label bc. Mike Jirish – the meanest mf piece of trailer trash i ever met and member of Black Label Reno. Ian – an artist and curator who certainly knows how to handle it! We got some good hollas – a few “Brooklyn!”‘s and just as many “Zarah!”s

This is just one of the thrills I experienced at the Miami art fair this year. It was also filmed for Canadian tv – Discovery channel’s Daily Planet and me being the token Canadian had to be one of the first riders. Im not sure when the air date will be – should be within the next few months. This piece was shot and edited by Fountainhead Films’ Fredrick King – thanks for the great shots FK!
