The collaborators in Studio-Glow, Riki Moss andRobert Ostermeyer, live and work on the Champlain Islands North of Burlington, Vermont.

We make sheets of abaca paper from a banana plant harvested in the Philapines and exported to Brooklyn, the pulp is overbeaten for 7 hours in our Hollander beater. What emerges are sheets with magical qualities useful for reinventing nature.

My half is a body shop. Masks, limbs, angels, flora, trees, fauna, leaves, fruity-things, pods, lights - the parts kits for curious life forms. Not only ours, the ones we intuit but never see.
