    The start of Summer brings a bounty of splendor: beachy days and starry nights, barbeques and lemonade and moonlit boardwalk strolls.

    Crank a Fish & See the Origins of Consciousness at ISE Cultural Foundation

    Crank a Fish & See the Origins of Consciousness at ISE Cultural FoundationSpiritual fulfilment has often been represented by the union of the masculine and feminine.  The wandering, tormented male (Odysseus, Dante, Faust) symbolizes the desire for a higher-level life that overcomes the base and animalistic, while the perfect, pure or eternal feminine (Helen, Beatrice, Gretchen) represents the fulfilment to be obtained by that desire.  Mayu Shiomi seems to parody this…

    What is your background in the arts and how did you end up in NYC?

    I was always making things as a child. I would take anything apart and put it back together to learn how things were made and worked. I also learned that I could communicate human emotions though making sculpture easier than by using speech… I found a voice in making sculpture.…

    Archeologists have found an area in Turkey which might have inspired the Garden of Eden story.  Gobekli Tepe is a region which once had overabundant vegetation and animal life, attracting numerous hunter-gathering bands which lived lives of extraordinary leisure and ease there.

Truman’s correspondence to his wife (circa 1945), it seems fitting to do so. I’ve got my pad of paper at my desk, sitting in my…

    Dread Scott’s Slave Rebellion ReenactmentA few days ago I went to see a slide presentation by performance and video artist Dread Scott; the event was part of a summer program curated by Olga Kopenkina at Station Independent Projects. The subject of the lecture was Scott’s new monumental project – the reenactment of the German Coast Uprising of 1811, the biggest slave rebellion in US history. The uprising took place in Louisiana, on the…
