The show at Swarm Gallery looks good, this show was an experiment for me to see if people really want "cheap art", or at least lower prices in the recession. I will hold out final judgment until the show comes down, but initial readings say that all people want are T-shirts... other people's T-shirts.

We went up to Willits CA. this last weekend to see the grand "Steam Up".
The place is a collection of steam engines and other turn of the century
equipment, most of which still works. "Big" is an understatement for some
of the stuff there. Some of the wheels were awe inspiring.

When my friend Benjy and I were doing an installation in San Diego,
we spotted the Google Street View car coming down the road. We
waved, and they finally posted the pictures. I think they fuzzed out
our faces... but Benjy is wearing one of my T-shirts, the one with
the Jager-woman on it.

I am always inspired when I look at the sculptures of Jean Tinguely,
"Eureka" is an awesome piece that is in Zurich, but I wish I could
have seen some of his "self-destructive" machines. Just read a
description of "Homage to New York" from 1960: "the 27-foot-high
assemblage came to life for 27 minutes before it was put down
by MoMA guards." Put down?!
