My 2nd Serbian Interview

Some of the material was recycled from the other TV show, but this one was filmed mostly at the fort and you can see me and the reporter, Ana, walking around. I am not used to this sort of thing and it is pretty hard to walk naturally with a camera 1 foot from your face. This was for a lifestyles type show called Hedonist, not nearly as racy as the name implies. Thanks for Boris and Zeljka for setting this up, and Feabrik for posting the videos.

Some PR

I really need to update my website to have a PR section, but for now this'll have to do.

Contemporary Art Blogs - absolutearts.com - "Flounder Lee" by Michael Corbin An Interview I did with Indianapolis arts collector, Michael Corbin. He has published a couple of books on art collecting for the rest of us.




This is an interview I did for a Serbian TV show called Art-Box. There is a translation on the YouTube page.

$250,000 American Idol Type Visual Arts Prize

While I think any money going to the arts is a good thing, I think this competition has some major flaws. 1) $50 submission fee for one piece! 2) ONE PIECE! how can 250k be awarded for one piece? I think that having a body of work is much more important 3) while I think getting the public involved is great, the public also loves videos of people getting hit with baseballs, A LOT. Maybe 50% of vote from public, 50% from art critics/curators, etc.

I won't be submitting. yeah it is a chance at a lot of money but with the one piece rule in there it is basically a lottery, not to downplay the people that get picked but some work only works as series.

SAVE MOCA!


The Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles is one of, if not the, best spots in the US for contemporary art. Its second location, the Geffen, was my favorite museum in LA by far. Take some years of bad financial decision making and then add the current financial market and you've got a recipe for problems. Since I no longer live in LA, I want to help so if anyone reading this can go and sign the petition, we are at least doing our slactavist part in helping.SIGN HERE!

art for ads



Replace most of the ads you see online with art. I have no issue with unobtrusive ones, but most of them are big and flashy and pop up.

blogs

I subscribe to a LOT of blogs. I am wayyy behind on reading them but I did recently find two that I thought I'd share.

First off is onthecusp.org. It is a local Indianapolis blog about art. Good way to keep up with the local scene.

The second is Modern Art Notes by Tyler Green. I had the pleasure of seeing his lecture last night at the Central library. (I also met him and the writers of onthecusp last night also {well I'd already met one of the writers of onthecusp but I saw him and met the 2nd writer}).

I think I should be asleep not watching Survivorman....

1783 to 1842

I've been putting off shooting this because I never knew how long it would take, no estimate at all. So I finally get around to shooting it today and get 70 frames into a 380 frame shoot and my battery dies, since I have to move the setup to change the battery I give up and decide to shoot again once I get an ac adapter. I try and take the camera off the boom stand and it is stuck, it seems the tripod mount came loose inside the camera so it just spins around the bolt. Now I have a camera on a 10 foot pole....doh!

My work in Germany, Photosynth

Microsoft labs has this cool new program that takes photos from many angles and puts them together. I don't know what the long term appeal of this is, but it probably has some. Anyway here are three of mine. The first two are at the site where my work is in an exhibtion in Germany, the third is in Frankfurt. ps they seem to take a while to load. I hope you don't need any software to load them...
