Documenting my sculpturing in Posterous

I’ve begun using Posterous as a way to share images on Twitter. It seems more stable and easier to use than TwitPic. The result is an interesting photographic feed documenting my time in the studio.


The images are low quality, conveniently taken with my cameraphone, but they do the job. Posterous is extraordinarily simple. You sign up (you can use Facebook Connect if you use Facebook), choose which services you’d like your Posterous Feed to show up in (if any) and then use your email to upload photos to the stream. If anyone’s feeling generous, today is my birthday and I’m wishing for a Flip camera in order to take better snapshots and video of my three-dimensional works in the future (insert emoticon here)!

If you’re interested in the stream, follow the Posterous feed at, or my Twitter feed at I’ve also been doing a little more targeted marketing using both Twitter and Google Reader by following the feeds and blogs of storm chasers. The reasoning for this is two-fold. First, I hope to find some inspiration in the photographs and videos posted by the chasers. Secondly, I hope to reach out to potential patrons. The thought is that storm chasers might be interested in a sculpture of a thunderstorm for their living room or foyer.

We’ll see if that actually pans out.
