Studio Update and Pending Web Site Redesign
The new Art and Structure studio residence is approximately 70% complete, and continues construction now with Winter having mostly passed, here in the high basin.
A major redesign of the Art and Structure web site is overdue. Due to an incredibly busy schedule, updates may be a while coming yet. When the update does arrive, expect to see a significant change in the site, being organized into three major categories for the arts, thought, and charitable initiatives.

Construction of New Studio Residence / Now on Facebook / Pending Updates
After much deliberation with the City, County and other associated parties over the last year or so, permits have been approved to construct a studio residence also serving as the new physical location of Art and Structure in Klamath Falls, Oregon.
Additional information and progress on the project will be posted in the coming months. Excavation to begin May/June 2011.
Art and Structure now has a Facebook presence. If you are on Facebook feel free to "like" the facebook page to receive updated content there. This site remains the primary web presence of Art and Structure and will always have the most in-depth content. However, the Facebook page will include updates from here as well as additional content of related interest to Art and Structure, such as a recent post regarding the application of nature's design to architecture, and a video performance of Ralph Vaughan Williams' "Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis".
In addition, this website can itself now be "liked" by Facebook users via the button following this update post, or the same button on the home page
Lastly, this website is due a general update which, among other things, will include larger images to view along with new content lining up to be added.

Feeling and Intellect, and a Brief Update
Much time has been spent these last 6 months working on a design for a studio residence to also be the working studio of Art and Structure here in Klamath Falls, Oregon. The design is mostly complete and now moving forward on evaluating the project's cost and feasibility. In addition, a damaged computer has slowed other projects this year which should now be coming back on track.
My photography will no longer be on display here at Fred Meyer but other venues are being considered.
New photos have been on display at Gallery Karon in Ashland, Oregon including two new self portraits which will be added to the site in the near future.

New Photos / TileTouch Lite / Lens Articles
An update on the last 6 weeks or so, which included a trip to the northeast...
New photos are now on display at Gallerie Karon in Ashland, Oregon. This is the winter set, as the weather generally prevents any regular visits to the gallery until the spring. As such the gallery has more of my work on hand this time of year than any other. Among the works are three new photos from a recent trip to the east coast, which have also been added to the Man-Made Objects section of the Photography pages. Many more will follow sometime later this winter.
New photos were also briefly set in place at the Klamath Falls Fred Meyer, in the deli seating area by Pete's Coffee, but have been temporarily removed for the holidays. Expect to see the new photos again around New Year's.
TileTouch lite is available for download through iTunes™ on the App Store™.
If you do not have iTunes installed on your computer the above link should direct to Apple's site to download iTunes. iTunes itself is also a free download.

TileTouch Now Available for iPhone and iPod touch
Art and Structure is pleased to announce the official release and availability of TileTouch for the Apple iPhone™ and iPod touch™.
TileTouch is easy enough to pick up and play immediately, with a depth of strategy and addictive gameplay to fill a moment, minutes or hours. Tiles slowly build on the game board at an ever increasing speed. Remove tiles from the board to progress in either Standard timed play with 10 levels of 3 stages each, or survive in Endurance mode.
The increasingly frantic gameplay, instinctive interaction and subtle elements requiring ever more careful strategy unique to each player will keep you coming back again and again to set that new high score or last just that much longer in Endurance mode.
