i need to run into MassArt early today — got to station myself for a day of Design for a client while also splintering myself off to accomplish a variety of important tasks that add up to some part + portion of my near-future life

don’t have a ton of time to put this ‘out there’, but besides my client work i am mostly focused on putting together 2 shows right now

the first — fauxShow — goes down on Saturday, April 23rd { yep, that’s the veryNight before Easter, purposely planned as the perfectly symbollic inBetween day in certain Biblical terms, right? the day that Jesus Christ Himself, according to the legend, was a little MIA — somewhere between a moved rock + a hard place — somewhere between death by crucifixion + resurrection — and this is why, in less ambitious terms at that, that i picked this date for the fauxShow — that + it coincided with the veryBeginnings of this year’s amazing Boston Cyberarts Festival } — i’ve enlisted the artists + artwork + now its just a matter of putting on a good show { which seems to come quite naturally, thank you }

the second — forensicEvidence — goes down on Tuesday, May 17th at The Bakalar Gallery at MassArt — this is basically my little thesis show — a show within a show, sort of parasitic in many ways, right? { although i’m not quite sure yet, perhaps its symbiotic, but it just doesn’t feel that way num, num } — i’ll blog more on that later, i’m sure … but for now let the record state that Carol has been helping me with the bottles for my pre-mythology-building + now quite conceptually infamous excerpt from what i am now rebranding as ‘a scene from laugh institute’ { website to come, domain already registered, thank you } — a collection of bottles, bottles of contained laughter, laughter that the viewer-participant helps release + pseudoScientifically analyze — and this is just one of several ‘exhibits’ on the list of collected evidence at my microCurated contribution to MFA Thesis Show 2011 { Show III } — i hope to see you there ;]
