art in the warehouse

Wow. You need an assistant! Lookin' good!

Our cardboard machine was debuted last Friday. It was a cool show! I really love shows at non-art specific sites like this---seeing art objects mixed with other objects. Reminds me of Showtel, which by the of the curators for our show, Gretel, said she started the Hotel/Motel one night only art show phenomenon in Miami over 10 years ago, and she knows Kara Walker Tome. Funny, huh?
More on our completed project here:

Some other pics of the opening:
Karolina Gnatowski took over a spray room to show some new work.Bill Talsma performed a warbled lectured on all the places he's lived. His illustrations of remembered floor plans reminded me of your "homestellations." Bill was dealing with memory, but mostly playing with tropes of authority.
Furniture designers of Dock 6 Collective (the host of the show) exhibited their beautiful objects on a central runway. My faves were the works of Zak Rose and Dan Sullivan.
We got a lot of good feedback on our project. Most importantly, we made the Dock 6 guys (who work with the actual machines we were referencing) smile. :)

Let's chat soon!
