I have a habit of randomly selecting titles when I complete work. Some days, I pull a record album (real vinyl) and find a song title I like. For this one I selected “The Changing Face of Harlem” collection of Jazz music from the 40s and song title “Is Is” by Stuff Smith.
Oh yeah, the piece; has a cool reversing mechanism, a variation of the one used in the piece “Nothing is Done”. This one uses bead chain rather than gears.
I have a solo show coming up this March at William Baczek Fine Arts in Northampton so there should be plenty of stuff-a-popping around the shop for the next few months.
