I created paintings using my hot rod lawn mower. Fiberglass inserts which fit between the blade and the frame of the machine captured bits of grass, paint and books as I ran over 50 self help books and whoopie cushions filled with house paint. A video camera, which was secured to the side of the mower at ground level, recorded the event. A video was created in conjunction with this project.
This work was funded by Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA.

"Royal Pine Tree" was included in "Yard", an exhibit at Socrates Sculpture Park in Long Island City, NY. It was constructed out of 5,500 Royal Pine car freshners, rebar and a 35 foot telephone pole. It had a very stong odor. This work was funded by Socrates Sculpture Park, Long Island City, NY.

"Evel Knievel Pinball Paintings" Entire games of pinball were recorded in oil paint while playing my 1979 Evel Knievel pinball machine. As I played, pinballs covered with oil paint moved across vellum fitted to the machine's playboard creating the paintings. A video, "Balls of Steel" is exhibited with the paintings.

In collaboration with The Lower East Side Print Shop in New York, I completed two variable editions of dry point prints using found graffiti-scratched New York City MTA subway windows as plates.
The windows I printed were taken from the Number 33 and 36 cars (The World’s Fair cars, aka Redbird cars).
Ink was rubbed into the layered scratches and printed onto light green paper cut to the shape of the windows. The prints were then collaged onto white paper reflecting the location of the windows on the original train. Each print created a unique image that is a visual record of time spent in transit in New York City.

"Subaru Rear Wiper Paintings" were created using the rear windsheild wiper of a Subaru Legacy wagon. Transmission fluid, engine treatment, motor oil and car wax were squirted out of the rear wiper onto paper cut to the size and shape of the Subaru's rear window. The motion of the rear wiper transformed these car fluids into toxic rainbows.

"Gunflakes" are repeated circular rubbings of handguns found in pawn and guns shops in New Mexico. Installed as a group, they form an impressive virtual arsenal that appears as a blizzard from afar.

These photographs are long exposures taken while playing video war games of the 80's created by Atari, Centuri and Taito. The photographs
were shot from video game screens while I played the games.
By recording each second of an entire game on one frame of film, I captured
complex patterns not normally seen by the eye.
