to Deitch projects galleries with Taylor... first four shots
are all from Barry McGee's 'amaze'ing installation. Recreated
bathroom complete with graf artist animotronics.. from people
that he created. Arms moving from side to side to give illusion
of seeing them in the act. third picture is a detail shot of
the second photo. The following three pictures are from the
artist Swoon out of Brooklyn... who did these awesome 4-5 foot
tall woodblock and papercut images.. my photos hardly do it
justice. Next photo is from a small graffiti and wheatpost wall
that was located just outside the galleries. To the side of
that is the lovely ms Taylor,who i met through danielle when
she came to visit us both. Last but not least is an out of order
picture, taken from Gus's Pickles - actually not out of order...
as I took it the following day! Located near Essex St. - They
make a mean dill pickle!
& dog, the MET, and ripoff chairs oh my...
walking to the subway I passed the observing dog window, and
there looking out the window was his owner and hound. Had to
ask to take the shot- got it.. even had it printed later that
day, and gave him a copy. He thanked me for it, asked if i had
wanted any money.. after saying no.. he asked if i could please
move his bag of trash from the door out to the curb... The next
four photos were taken in the NY Met. Boy drawing armor... armor
looking down upon thee.. two people representing the argument
of picasso vs braque.. which painting is which?? And my special
limited edition New York sticker.. which was a fun handout..
girl at the desk saw my book, commented on how she liked the
sticker and it reminded her of the matiese work that was up..
later when walking through musuem and reaching 2nd floor i looked
down and BAM theres the sticker.. so had to document. BIG ol
line of people: all waiting for the lottery 12 tickets for the
musical WICKED- good luck everyone. Tears were had, shouts of
joy were heard, and dissapointment filled the air. Few days
later walking along Central Park with Sam.. passed this cheuffer
who had a very smart way to pass the time away. Below that set,
starts with a shot of Ali sporting a very very cool Mies van
der Rohe ripoff chair that we found on the curb, and carried
back to her humble studio. Next to that is the very creative
entreupenuraship (very misspelled)- of water being sold to the
2nd story of a tour bus. Last, a very relaxing cell phone conversation.
Spooky and 5 Pointz
tickets from FlavorPill
- to see a DJ Spooky hosted mixmash of great artists. The
first picture is a very cool camera rig used to document the
whole concert, it made extremely smooth pans around and over
the musicians. Below, is Dj spooky cueing some music on his...ahem..
CD decks...*cough*.. i am a lame hater.. he was a vinyl guy..
what happened? Below that- MC5 rocks the house. The following
five picts are from a place called 5 Pointz, located at Jackson
Ave. and Crane st.- which happens to be just across the street
from P.S.1 contemporary museum in Queens, NY. Last photo is
getting some desert in Parkslope at the resturant Sam was
working at... some particularly cool lighting on the table.
art and beer, wooosh, and bang on a can...
hopped, and found this very cool piece by David Moreno, simply
using speakers playing a particular frequency, with slinkies
attached to the cone, a very nifty visual sound was created.
Pure genius. After galleries, I felt it necessary to track
down this brewery of Chelsea I had heard of, and had myself
a pint. T'was fun getting to see fancy boats dock and hear
the 'WHHHAP' of golf balls being hit from the driving range
just to my right. Giacometti, easily my favorite sculptor,
with such elongated rough figures. Second to last photo, left
me wondering, why does someone need to be listening to the
audio tour, when looking at a canvas of red... oooh wait,
theres a white line through it.. *WHOOSH* over my head. Finally
a snap from this most amazing night of music by two Ubekistanies,
hosted at Tonic, and put on by Bang On a Can Allstars. My
concept of banging on a can, has been forever altered.
