99 KJs. Imagine.

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

What started as a lark ended up as a minor obsession; one friend thought there were 98 too many.  I give you “99 KJs“.  Position 4E is me and Keith Johnson in a Denver hotel bar each at different conferences.

I am not making this up!

Optical confusion at YUAG

Friday, October 10th, 2008

Karin Rosenthal, Belly Landscape 1980

First Doubt: Optical Confusion in Modern Art, a new show by Joshua Chan, curator at Yale University Art Gallery, with 114 pictures drawn from the Allan Chasanoff collection, looks at optical confusion in pictures. A topic that is often talked about in classes but rarely investigated as thoroughly as this. With pictures from Ansel Adams to Lee Friedlander all dealing with a confused optical space, the viewer is challenged to look out and figure out sometimes very beguiling space. The show is up through January 4, 2009 but will be reconfigured three times during the run. Worth a look.

450,000 Gallons in 22 sec.

Niagara Falls is an amazing site.  Visual, audible, tactile, and amazing all at the same time with 450,000 gallons of water right there…amazing.  Maid of the Mist was the intent.

Snake River Mating Dance

I post this with fear and trepidation, it is my first time based piece. It is a 27 second video that seemed so obvious at the time I made it. Click on the link and it will open in Quicktime.

This is the second time this piece has been shown: first at CEPA as a linear installation, 20×240 in ; This time at Kehler Liddell Gallery in New Haven as a 4×3 grid measuring 86×64 in. I think I like it best this way.
