Cape Cod collection


















over the summer i visited the beaches of my childhood on Cape Cod. this is a shot of some yankee-style plastic pollution that i teased out of the seaweed tangle at the high water mark.

interview with the san franista, emily goligoski

i met local culture coverage/cool hunter, emily goligoski, at the indie mart last month. i was thrilled that she wanted to hear about my work. read the Q+A here:

http://emilygoligoski.com/index.php/deep_trouble/

she begins:

“I’ve been going to fewer art fairs in the past few months because the wares are starting to look the same: they’ve become a haze of quilted totes, oversized sunglasses, and animal themes (please bring an end to the owls). So it was refreshing to see local designer Beth O’Rourke’s Deep Deep Trouble in Potrero recently–her repurposed found items manage to be both entertaining and startling. Concerned that “plastics are poisoning our oceans,” she started crafting one-off objects featuring snarky language and trash (and yes, you will actually want them, despite how that sounds).”

indie mart booth!

what a great day: lot’s of sun, constant conversation, new friends, positive feedback, and plenty of smart suggestions regarding how to evolve the work and where to show it. many, many thanks to luke for printing and constructing the backdrop; it really pulled everything together nicely.
