From the glacier fed streams of Norway’s Jotunheimen mountains, I’ve traveled this past week to the low, wetlands of Denmark. In fact, I’m living in a 300 year-old house alongside a castle moat. This is the artist’s residence for TICKON, the environmental art park I’ll be working in for the next month. Yesterday 20 tons of stone was gathered from field piles and delivered by the tractor-wagon load to the site of my construction. Today the outline of the work will be established and guide frames erected.

    @Chuck – Beautiful setting for an art installation. Wonderful people here, lending a hand or a tool at every turn.

    @TJ – Last Sunday was the worst flooding seen here in thirty years. The wheat crop is underwater in the fields and even the harvested corn is ruined in the flooded storage barns. Still, the project is moving along.

    Wow, can’t wait to watch the progress. I looks wet and cool. That tractor wagon looks a little low. And what kind of bone are in front of your residence? T.j.
