Well, a few days ago I left my hovel in east Flatbush and moved to my residency in Hurley, NY, a charming village three miles from Kingston. I'm staying in my friend Nina's house, an ancient sprawling former tavern built in 1709.
I have met some nice people in the area already and am currently holed up in this place like an art bunker. It's taken a couple of days to get acclimated to the space, but what a space! I love this house quite a bit.
I decided to start my project by playing around with the space a little. Since it's old and rather spooky, why not play the role of spirit?
I have spent a little time exploring the area as well. I can't get very far with a lack of car, but I did go up in some woods behind the house and came across some stone ruins. The cemeteries on either side are fascinating as well. There's rich early American history in this vicinity that I find fascinating.
