Object Impermanence: When My Whole Studio Burned Down

It is with a heavy heart that I must report I lost my beloved studio and all its content on the Morning of August 9th in an early morning blaze that in one of the M0XY buildings. I am eternally grateful that nobody was hurt and everybody is safe.

I am heartbroken about the loss of work… about 20 years worth, but even more so for my studio mates and neighbors.

I was able to secure space for the build of the Gift-o-Matic in North Oakland (gift-oakland.com) build in North Oakland. This is mostly in thanks to folks who donated to my GoFundMe Campaign. Without them, I seriously don’t know what I would have done.
