Years ago, one of the explorations in psyberspace led to the insight that the end user (and that was still a strange word then) could do what they liked with your layout on the web or in an email. The creator used colour perhaps, but the user could set everything to B&W for example, or green and orange.

Is that participatory art?

Sort of. It came up very early here in a conversation about the diversity of these sketches. The user can unify! In a way that is what Michel Allen has done by selecting 14.

There is an A4 limited edition of 25 on Epson paper of this print. Now imagine in addition:

  • The image printed on 1.2 meter wide canvas
  • A meter square lightbox
  • Printed by Adgraphix onto 2,500 tiles
  • projected onto a screen
  • video in you tube
  • a postcard
  • a postage stamp
  • a book cover
  • a Button – (Josh, can you make one?)
  • T-shirt, mouse-pad, mug etc at café-press

I took the train to Beacon to see the Dia there. Great day. I enjoyed the view from the window and the hazy nothingness of the Hudson as we left New York. While on the train I painted this image in my mind. Exactly like this. What surprised me is that 20 min out of the city there is hardley a house to be seen and there is bush, not farmland.

De Young – Bay Area Figurative – Richard Diebenkorn

On Friday We went to the De Young. I like the building. I even like the mesh now. There was one flaw, the top viewing deck is “elevator only”, ridiculous. We met a friend of Amy’s Joe Mangrum. Does ephemeral art. I liked the Hiroshimo Sugimoto exhibit, the suble siplicity of the seascapes and the art about art idea is present in his long warrior photo.
