Last bit of summer in the canyons.



juliafae as a part of her recreated childhood bedroom during #TheIdentityProject.



Photo of a friend, fellow artist, and genuinely amazing person @juliafae as a part of her recreated childhood bedroom art installation that was shown this last weekend at the #TheIdentityProject. Julia has always been an amazing artist in the truest sense of the word and I’m incredibly grateful to have known her for as long as I have. I’m beyond sad to see her leave Utah once again, but I’m happy that we’ve been able to have the time to create the work that we have together.

"I used to make long speeches to you after you left. I used to talk to you all the time, even though I was alone. I walked around for months talking to you. Now I don’t know what to say. It was easier when I just imagined you. I even imagined you talking back to me. We’d have long conversations, the two of us. It was almost like you were there. I could hear you, I could see you, smell you. I could hear your voice. Sometimes your voice would wake me up. It would wake me up in the middle of the night, just like you were in the room with me. Then… it slowly faded. I couldn’t picture you anymore. I tried to talk out loud to you like I used to, but there was nothing there. I couldn’t hear you. Then… I just gave it up. Everything stopped. You just… disappeared. And now I’m working here. I hear your voice all the time. Every man has your voice."

“Be famous. Be a big social experiment in getting what you don’t want. Find value in what we’ve been taught is worthless. Find good in what the world says is evil. I’m giving you my life because I want the whole world to know you. I wish the whole world would embrace what it hates. Find what you’re afraid of most and go live there.”

 —Invisible Monsters by Chuck Palahnuik (via yaredship)



Printing, printing, printing in the darkroom tonight. Can’t remember the last time I slept. Will be showing these lith print lovelies Saturday at the Utah Clean Air Fair at the city library Saturday from 12-4. Let’s get this graduation business done, shall we?

was the inside just as cold as that which was out?
