We (Daniel H. Dugas and Valerie LeBlanc) are very happy that our project ‘Around Osprey’ has been accepted for the upcoming Electronic Literature Organization conference in Orlando, Florida, July 16-19th. The exhibit entitled ‘(gen)erations’ will be open to the public for one month at the CityArts in downtown Orlando. ‘Around Osprey’ was developed in Osprey during an artist residency with the Conservation Foundation of the Gulf Coast.

We hope that the Coronavirus will go away and not wreak havoc into all things.
