Fuller,Noguchi and Me

I have been obsessed with this chromed out portrait of Buckminster Fuller by Isamu
Evidently Fuller and Noguchi were homies!
After seeing this I was inspired to create chromed out heads too.
Mine are a little different...

almond eyes


Some friends and I had a show at an empty church.The church was double booked the night of our opening, so after the opening ended we pushed our stuff aside for dance class! 
The exhibition was titled Hairy Sunrise

Here is the work I made.

(series of irregular ashtrays and A small modular shelf)

I gave a talk about Noguchi and other artists a couple weeks ago.
These are some photos from a research trip to the Noguchi gardens in Costa Mesa

A museological approach to made and found objects.

Some beeswax VHS Tape candles i made.


( A project from last year.)

After indulging in the simple act of googling my own name, I decided I wasn't famous.
There were a couple of other Ryder Jones' that were also not famous, but they sparked my interest.
I tried to research them but came up with nothing.So I started to assume details, fictionalizing their lives in my head.From this thinking I created a kind of fictional portrait of what I thought these other Ryder's lives might be like.
