People often ask about my inspirations and how I developed @the14thfactory. This is my story...
Story of The 14th Factory - Part 3
So, even with no solid venue or timeline was in place, production began for an approximately 100,000 sq.ft, multiple media, immersive experience. Independent and built from the ground up by collaboration, an art journey for an audience that would be quite different from any typically curated museum show or gallery paradigm.

In fact, the project is not really curated in the usual sense, as the work is not pre-existing and selected around a core theme, rather the project is made like a movie, a script fleshed out by artists, creatives, producers, location scouts, set designers, etc. So all the work is created to fit the framework from the ground up, so the entire exhibition becomes one huge, multi-faceted, work of art, with many artists sharing the credit.

It is one of the things I'm most grateful for, that all these people, and this extends far beyond just artists listed here, were happy and willing to give and energy to this crazy rollercoaster of a project and it is one of the things that keeps me motivated.
I have a huge obligation to deliver for that have helped me get this far and I won't ever give up until the new 14th Factory is realized and make everyone proud, and, hopefully, ensure that all involved over these many years benefit from the success of future projects.
