"I found myself an innovator" opening tomorrow night

I'm in a show opening this Friday at Diverseworks in the Flickerlounge. It's a new video and there's a clip above.

It's the regional counterpart to the exhibition“Now that I’m by myself,” she says “ I’m not by myself, which is good” which is curated by Rachel Cook. All artist included in both exhibitions are really fantastic, and I really enjoy their work.

I got to meet Yuki Okumura yesterday who is in town for the opening all the way from Tokyo, Japan. He is really nice and hiswork is awesome. I hadn't seen work byBrian Bress or Wynne Greenwood but they are both really great. And I super <3 Laurel Nakadate. It's so nice to see an entire video show here in Houston, and all performance related or based.

I'm sure the opening will be nuts, but go see the show another time, when you can spend some time watching everything. I'm sure it'll be worth it.

Outsourcing is the new future of art making

Or maybe the future is now.

Anyway, I'm really excited about this idea I've been playing with for a while, and I've come up with a personal term for it, consumer art. Generally I like to take objects, mostly consumer goods, that have inherent meaning and combine them in a way that creates tension. Or even doing a series of actions, like purchases and documenting them in a way that defines them to me as performance. I also like reveling in the mundane, exposing the cheesy and embarrassing nature of mass marketed items and the idea that these things make your life bettter. Whatever. I am extremely inarticulate when it comes to putting these things in writing so.. I'll just clue you in on the new project.

So my senior year book page is one of those things I haven't looked at in years, for the sheer thought of it makes me cringe. It's like this horrible snapshot of my life that I really rather forget and somehow I can't get rid of it. Almost 1000 people I know for sure have copies of it and have flipped to my page and felt sorry for me for being such a retard lame ass. This historical record of how pathetic I was at that time will probably survive me.

Ok, so I'm being harsh but I'm accepting it now. I'm spending time with it and a whole slew of memories related to it. Even better, I sent a scanned image of it to get painted in China, at a monumental 72" x 48"!!! Here's the proof they sent me early this morning. I could not be more pleased.
