“Dan Hurlin enlisted me to create text for his large-scale puppet work, DISFARMER, which premiered at St. Anns Warehouse in 2009. Mike Disfarmer was a small town portrait photographer whose stark, raw portraits of 1940s-era farmers made him a name in the art world upon their posthumous discovery in the late 1970s. But we barely know anything about him. Disfarmer was a kind of Boo Radley-figure who scared the local kids, and didnt much respect his neighbors. He believed he was switched at birth by a tornado and later changed his name to dissociate himself (dis-farmer) from the working poor of Heber Springs, Arkansas. In this sequence, Disfarmer tries to leave town once and for all.” – SYLVAN
