The room is filling up! We should have the floor covered by the end of the day today and be able cover it with giant Plexiglas sheets. Timing is tight, but I expect that we can complete the installation by tomorrow's opening.
See you there!

We have been told that the Map will be delivered to Summerhall sometime this morning. Teams of installers will be ready! I have estimated that it will take three days to complete the mounting. So, we should be finished by the time of the opening reception from 7 to 9PM on Friday.
Come on down! The show runs from Dec 7 to Jan 24. I'll post a link to their website. Hope to see you!

In the meantime the gallery, shown above, sits empty. By the opening on Friday it should be covered, walls and floor, with my work. In the photo you can see one of the sheets of Plexiglas which will be on top of that part of the Map which will be mounted on the floor. Visitors will be able to walk from Southport to Jackson!

Paul Robertson, the Curator at Summerhall in Edinburgh, and I, with the help of Holly and David, are madly trying to arrange for the shipping of the 3011 panels which currently constitute the Map. The show is scheduled to open on December 6, but the details of getting the monster over there are proving to be more complicated than anticipated. We'll keep you informed.
In the meantime David and I have copied about 400 panels which will give me something to work on while the originals are on exhibit.
Chris Miller and his brother Nick were here from Nashville and Charleston, WV, respectively. They interviewed me with the idea of writing something about the Map. It remains to be seen what direction their work will take.

Rows N1 through S7, complete from West to East, now adorn four walls of Brattleboro Museum and Art Center's East Gallery and will be open to the public this Friday, November 1. The show will be up until March, 2014, and I hope that many of you will get to see it.
If you come to the opening reception on Friday please be sure to introduce yourself! I look forward to meeting you.
Meanwhile plans are almost complete for a show in Edinburgh in December and January. I'll give you more info early in November.

I need your help once again. I will be traveling in a couple of weeks to help mount the show in Brattleboro, and I am in talks with a European museum to do a show there very soon. While the museums pay me a stipend to help defray my expenses their money only goes part way in meeting the costs.
SO.......I need to raise money by selling more prints and panels on Ebay. Kickstarting without Kickstarter you might say. You send money, and I send you part of my Map. Prices start, at the moment, as low as $3.20 and go as high as $300 plus for an original first generation panel. Click on the link at right and take a look!

A new Void has appeared in the city of Fields West this morning (map year 1086).
This largely unprotected city of over 700,000 souls saw the relocation of an estimated 15,700 individuals to the alternative dimensions inside the Void. This portion of historic old town will be greatly missed by the remaining residents.
