For the last several months I have known this article wold be coming out of the Washington Post. The process of doing a piece like this is pretty significant. Months of spending time with the reporter who is watching, observing, asking questions, putting a recorder in my face to get quotes and explanations to what I’m doing, and how it makes me feel. The complexity of the performance art piece you see here, The Last American Indian On Earth, is difficult to explain, and Kris Coronado captured it nicely. The online version of this went up today, and you can check it out on the link below. The print version will be included in the Sunday Edition of the Washington Post Magazine, which is part of the monstrous Washington Post Sunday paper.
If you are visiting for the first time as a result of this article in the WaPo, you can see the working movie trailer below, and see my visual art and other projects on my artist site greggdeal.com.
