//COOL TUNES

Sorry about the lame title.Let's just say it was necessary... Katie Paterson's " Langjökull, Snæfellsjökull, Solheimajökull" is one of those ideas I wish were my own. These 3 records are as the name supposes made from glacier ice,and are played until they've fully melted...

The artist's explains:
Sound recordings from three glaciers in Iceland, pressed into three records, cast, and frozen with the meltwater from each of these glaciers, and played on three turntables until they completely melt.

The records were played once and now exist as three dvds. The turntables begin playing together, and for the first ten minutes as the needles trace their way around, the sounds from each glacier merge in and out with the sounds the ice itself creates. The needle catches on the last loop, and the records play for nearly two hours, until completely melted

//THE KURT VONNEGUT POST


Kurt Vonnegut is definitely one of my favourite writers...I guess I l ike his honesty and the fact that he doesn't try to sound clever when making a point, but rather completely relies on his creativity instead...
This image reminds me of the novel Cat's Cradle & one of my favourite quotes in it....


"No wonder kids grow up crazy. A cat's cradle is nothing but a bunch of X's between somebody's hands, and little kids look and look and look at all those X's..."
"And?"
"No damn cat, and no damn cradle."



quote from the novel Cat's Cradle

//SKYWALKERS
been wanting to share this for months...

off the site : fwy studios

In 2006, FriendsWithYou opened Art Basel Miami with an event of epic proportions comparable to the Macy’s Day Parade. Toyota Scion commissioned FWY to curate and produce Skywalkers, inflatable procession celebrating the Earth as the newest member of the universal community. Skywalkers featured 18 giant blimps designed by FWY and various artists and included over 300 volunteers, a high school marching band, full event staff, and thousands of attendees. The parade illuminated the skies of Miami’s South Beach, which gained international attention and made the covers of the New York Times online, The Art Newspaper, and The Miami Herald among other publications. Skywalkers represents the magnitude and magic that only FriendsWithYou events can bring to life.

//UNTITLED

It's pretty much end of year again...this comes with clichéd emotions such as feeling worn out and simply needing a break. I suppose I currently find myself in this clichéd mode...
The other day I got the permission to destroy a gallery plinth...unfortunately I wasn't muscular enough, or maybe I was just too lazy....
nonetheless...if you need a break I recommend you break stuff...it might end up being as awesome as the art of SebastianWickeroth

//WOWEE ZOWEE or THE WONDERS OF PHOTOGRAPHY.
Yesterday, my amigos from welovepictures helped me out bigtime and documented my artworks for my end of year catalogue.I just love how good photographers can make anything look good.Trust me,...these artworks aren't quite as amazing as these awesome pics.Thanks guys...I'm blown away by your MAD SKILLZ.

Ohh....the goofy one of me was us sort of testing the effect of that mad industrial type of fan.It was so incredibly loud that I couldn't hear them instructing me..hence I guess I look so goofy.

guess it helps mentioning that I work with dust...might seem bit random otherwise.
