The Death Book Project
OPENING TONIGHT: 7 PM – 10 PM
For those in the NYC area – this Thursday is the reception for “A Book About Death.” Artists have been asked to contribute 500 postcards to create an unbound ‘Book About Death’ as an homage to Ray Johnson and a celebration of Emily Harvey. This is an exercise in a global interpretation of death.
There are only 500 books. Those who attend the opening will be able to take a book with them so that the exhibit itself will disappear over the course of a few hours. I would suggest getting there early. For those who want to watch online, a webcast will broadcast the event on Thursday: LIVE WEBCAST

For locals: Art Hop is this weekend. I will be at my studio within S.P.A.C.E. on Friday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. and all day on Saturday. Feel free to stop by and say hello. We are in the same building as the Art Hop juried show and the Conant Chair Challenge. The Art Hop will also coincide with the opening of our group show; “A Piece of Work.”

“Echo’s Lost is an exhibition focusing on the idea of Memory and an exploration of what is left behind when memories fade. Rather than look at specific memories, Echo’s Lost concentrates on the idea of memory itself and the space left behind when the memories are gone.”
This exhibition was put together by Australia’s creative group “Omnific Assembly” for the Melbourne Fringe Festival 2009. The show will be on display at the Circa Vintage Store on Gertrude St., Fitzroy September 23rd – Nov 18.
The piece I created for the show is a skeletal figure looking into a mirror that reflects a youthful self. You can see pictures of the piece here
