While I rarely take for granted the fortune of reaching great distances with my work, I sometimes forget where all it’s been. For example, the U.S. Department of State had been holding in the basement of the U.S. Consulate in Spain a collection of Instrumenthead leftover from a show they sponsored in Barcelona three years ago. It took me by pleasant surprise to hear they were going to dust it off February 5-26th to exhibit Instrumenthead at the EASD Valencia, a Spanish design school. The U.S. Consulate sponsored the event in the EASD’s American Space Valencia, a zone devoted to the promotion of American Art.

The show ran in conjunction with a design conference attracting creatives from all over Spain and I was honored to have been invited to speak about my process to both a class of design students at EASD Valencia but art lovers at the American Space. I am also proud to report they’re going to move the show to Madrid for another show in May. Thanks to everybody who’s been working behind the scenes at EASD Valencia and the U.S. Department of State and its Consulate in Spain for sharing my work.
