Tonight Missy and I, along with our fellow residents - writer Zebbie Watson, playwright Kevin Doyle, sculpture artist John Melvin, and visual artist Lynda Smith - had the chance to present our work to the local community here in Sheridan, Wyoming. We each gave a casual talk, showed some images, and had some time for Q and A. All of the artists and writers were very well received and the crowd was really engaged and supportive. Unchronicled Explorations got a great response. Thank you Sheridan!
I have a long standing fascination with the conspiracy board. This hidden map that you keep in private with visual theories tacked on to the cork board, usually tucked behind the county map or on the other side of the chalkboard. There is something both hilarious and psychotic about having a huge interlaced theory.. Mostly because it takes so long to create; the maker obviously spends a lot of time on these ruminations. This was something that I pictured Vostrum and Slobek creating, but not necessarily admitting to doing it.
Perhaps one of them has a bit of hypergraphia. Too many ideas to contain. There are shreds of concern about an archaeological dig with some stolen bones, some shady characters, odd findings, newspaper clippings, maps, weather reports.. everything that might suggest there's more to this than meets the eye....
