Shiloh Burton is a woman. :)

It's fascinating how the mind works, and what baggage and pre-existing mental pathways we're all equipped with. In a previous post I talked about Shiloh Burton, a photographer I've been assigned to as part of the Fling. I assumed, because I'd requested a male partner, that Shiloh was a man; but it turns out that's not the case. Shiloh is in fact a woman!

So now I'm about to have my mind expanded. It's uncharted territory for me to contemplate a relationship with a woman. I've had a few days to think about it and there are already all kinds of questions and musings in my mind that could be made into art.

Stay tuned!

Errr, I thought this was an artistic relationship and not a dating relationship? I can't imagine that collaborating with a woman would be very different, but I dunno.

When you played in Vegas, your backup band was at least somewhat female, although not exactly collaborators.

The Fling curators want all the pairs they've assigned to envision a romantic relationship between them, not just a collaboration. The art we make is going to be about a romance that we imagine having.
