Field trip!

I visited Tim McMichael, one of the artists in the 5k house show, at his studio in the David Shoe building which – at least for me – had quite the reputation as an artists hubbub. Most of the activity started 10+ years ago and was relatively short-lived; a bunch of the spaces were converted for living and studios but things got out of hand with raves hence the landlord kick most of the folk out. There’s a strangeness in seeing the abandoned lofts.

Tim’s old studio; a couple years back he moved to his present space. This is the pipe from the wood stove he used for heat.
