The light looks beautiful in the winter.
Our skin looks warm against the cool colors around us, grey sky and white ground, so many variations of grey and pale pale blue.
We have this time to go inside our thoughts, to conserve our energies, and to build our ideas so we can arise in the spring and the summer, burst out of our winter skin like phoenixes in the sun!

The Lot set up on Lawley Street this October to meet up with Luis Croquer (Director of MOCAD) and Joel Wachs (President of the Andy Warhol Foundation). It was a lovely get-to-together. Thanks to Jon Brumit across the street!
This marks the beginning of The Lot's transient phase, where the The Lot is a venue wherever the letters are. We are looking to partner with friends, strangers, and organizations in Detroit and beyond. Think about it! Let's come to your neighborhood!

Mary Beth Carolan & Robert Reese
Sat. May 22 6-10pm
(dance performance at dusk)
12138 St. Aubin
An interactive sculpture that will transform through two stages of
energy. The first stage will be a high energy dance performance.
Dancers silhouettes will be lit with high powered industrial lights
that draw power from the grid. The performance will be viewed from four
different sides of the cube. As night falls the sculpture will
transform into a quieter experience. Solar powered lights will kick on,
drawing power only from the storage provided by the sun that day.
Audience members will be invited to come inside, lounge around, and
gaze at the solar light show. (Dance by Tzarinas of the Plane)
Mary Beth Carolan is a multidisciplinary Detroit artist and is the recent recipient
of a 2010 Kresge Community Arts Grant for $9,000.00. In the fall she will be attending
the University of Michigan Masters of Fine Arts Program.
Robert Reese is currently an industrial electrician at the Ford Rouge
Center. Outside of "working on big machines and poking them with
probes and stuff", he's passionate about building projects. Recent
"volunteer projects" include a scratch built "vacuum forming machine"
for the University of Michigan-Flint's Engineering Science Department
and an "arc vapor deposition chamber, used to create buckyballs and
nanotubes" for UofM-Flint's Physics Department. This year he made a
personal metal-casting furnace and is working with metals. Upcoming
plans include a CNC machine that "uses an additive process to print
three dimensional chocolate sculptures."
