#0763 One file
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 cafÃ©-press
- Fridge magnet
- Sticky labels

#0717 Hudson River
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.
#0623 De Young
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.
