I am an artist in residence at deFENIKS Art Center in Antwerp, Belgium. I am creating some new work, and making a few new instruments. I will do a workshop on cigar box guitar and a performance at the close of the residency. Below is a video and photo of a new Belgium Beer Can Guitar that I made here in Belgium:
