A few weeks ago a wonderful blogger, Cyndi Lavin, asked to profile me for her fabulous blog Layers Upon Layers. I was thrilled, of course....it fact, her questions made me stop and think about "where I've been", "where I am", and "where I want to go". During all this reflection and future planning, I recognized the need to have a place from which access to my altered book and installation videos could be easily accessed. I created another blog: http:videosbysusanlenz.blogspot.com
I also realized that my son Alex and I never made videos for two altered books created last year. They'd been in a traveling exhibition for a year. So, they're sort of "making their debut" today. The books are called Becoming An Artist and Imagine Illiteracy. There are slide shows of each on Flickr!
I'm really thrilled to have had this opportunity to share not only my art but a little of my life with so many people.
There's also more good news today. One of my African Series (Happy) and one of my other altered books (New Song in a Strange Land) were accepted into the annual MOJA Arts Festival juried show in Charleston, South Carolina!
