A Book About Death

OK, I did it. I accomplished Goal #2 which was to make a piece for A Book About Death. If you remember, this group show is the brain child of Matthew Rose, a collage artist and writer living in Paris Each artist has to send their piece to The Emily Harvey Foundation Gallery, NYC in the form of 500 postcards. See my postcard, front and back above. The opening of the show is 9/10/09 from 7:30 - 11:pm. The show runs through 9/22. Everyone who visits is free to take postcards from each of the artists.
Here is a link to the blog about the show

And here is a link to the gallery
As of this posting, there are a total of 356 artists participating. I think the hope was for 1,000 artists. Maybe they will still make it. Perhaps not all the artists who are submitting work have sent their work to the blog? Anyway, do check out the blog. There is some really great art there.

DisCo Part Deux - The Great Reveal

I know. I know. We don't have to discuss it. I will start with last things first and progress backwards in subsequent posts.

You remember my piece,
The Measure of Breath? Sure you do. I hung my package out on the terrace on 3/14 and took it down on 5/1. Here it is at the end of its life out in the elements.
Ready. Steady. Drum roll. Here she is in her reincarnation.
Her name is
Souflee Renait (Breath Reborn). Dolls, music, boxes - 3 elements I enjoy.
Thanks again to Seth Apter of The Altered Page He always has such wonderful, intriguing ideas. Check out his recent posts and check out the other artists who have posted their Part 2 pieces. There are so many wonderful, talented artists out there!
