Hologram/Video in Space

Broken Social Scene just came out with a music video that uses a hologram-like projection in a space. I can’t embed it, but here’s a link to the only place I can find it online.

Marina Abramovic Made Me Cry

Portraits taken during the MoMA’s exhibit of performance artist “Marina Abramović: The Artist Is Present”. Abramović sits at a table in silence, and museum guests can sit across from her and stare. Some people couldn’t handle the heat.

An interesting performance in a specific space.

Ideas for Bird House

I am searching for material ideas for my next installation. I need to reproduce a form the captures my overarching theme. I like these house for their use of recycled paper.  Drawback: not weather worthy.  What do you think?Handmade bird house- Tamar Mogendorff, Artist

Project 2 space decision…

A decision was made by our guest critics about the allocation of spaces for project 2. The critics want to put things into your hands (for a designated amount of time). So while everyone will be at the opening you are all charged with determining who gets which and what space. 

As with before you have both galleries. As part of university gallery we will also include the gallery office as a potential installation space (furniture will be moved into the basement storage space). 

If no decision is reached by the end of tonight’s opening. You will be forced to deal with our back-up plan.

Beili Liu, miasma.
"…made primarily of wool and thread, extols the virtues of the transfixed state. Mystery shrouds the work. It could be made of many a thing: hair, cotton, shredded rubber, etc., and in its presence, one feels at a great loss to know the many stories it could tell. Yet it is the X factor ingredient of acrylic medium that pulls and stretches the wool and thread into an unrecognizable and unworldly realm. Both erotic and ghostly, the hanging strands mark an arrival at such a precise and wonderful choice of materials that you almost give up trying to figure the thing out." —Steven Irvin, Buzzine, LA
