"We Think of You"

We Think of You from KC Bull on Vimeo.

K.C. Bull and Dave Wilson (Ribbons) spent several months visiting RCA beach in Bolinas, studying the space, and organizing a large collaborative stop motion event which took place on September 10th, 2011. Over 40 people contributed from sun up till sun down to make the stop motion film working under a 16ft tripod built by K.C. and Dave. Dave recently brought the film to Japan as part of a creative exchange. The field of radio towers above RCA beach was the site to receive the first trans-pacific radio transmission from Japan in 1913. The RCA event was a day to keep Japan's recent healings in mind and put forth a new transmission "We Think of You."

When I was in Japan, I was able to give copies of this little california transmission to all the people I connected with. It was also shown as part of the main event of the project I was working on there called "Open Harvest," you can read about and see about here.

and here's some photos by terri loewenthal of her experience partaking in the stop motion outing

I am in Japan right now working on a project with the OPENrestaurant family. it's been wild. folks are sharing some things about the trip here:

it's incredible getting to work in new places and find the way to communicate your ways and navigate and learn new ways.

(thanks to david king for sending me this perfect feeling image that he noted as "closeup of water behind a missionary ship, 1797").

I'm having a showing at the Mountain View Cemetery
5000 Piedmont ave in oakland...i just finished making a drawing there after 4 months so I'm going to show it in the context of where it was made before it moves to it's next home. you can find me and it and more in the Urn Garden just past the main mausoleum building.

and for fun, here's some photos that Headlands Center for the Art program director Brian Karl took of a walk I led out there a couple weekends back. we walked to a secret place and listened to a recording of coconut, and played with a wind sail on cliff, and then had quiet time. class dismissed.
