I'm super excited to be making work for the NEPO 5K again! Below you'll find this year's press release.

Alwyn O'Brien and I will be collaborating on a performance piece entitled Idle in which we will create a tree swing in Daejeon Park. We will swing for the duration of the NEPO 5K event, drawing inspiration from Rococo concepts of the idle that will be contrasted against the physical endurance of the act.

I hope to see you all there!


Get ready! This boundary-blurring, community-involving, city-loving art event is slowly sauntering into existence once again!

On Saturday September 7th 2013 NEPO House is proud to present the third iteration of NEPO 5k DON'T RUN, a 5km art walk from the International District to Beacon Hill. The route will be packed with over 60 projects: visual art and sculptural installations, interactive artworks, poetry readings, video projections, sound installations, music and theatrical performances. Artists will install and perform along the ordinary city streets, in garages, a pagoda, meadows along a bike path, below a bridge and under a freeway overpass. Every aspect of this walk is a creative happening – a visual and symbolic experiment in creating a more enjoyable world through active participation.

SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 7th 2013, 12 - 8 PM
ADMISSION $10 (children are free)
