One Question Interview

Rafael Rozendaal included me in his project One Question Interview.
I met Rafael in Tokyo last January and we went for dinner in a crazy high rise restaurant in Shinjuku with a bunch of people including a Flash evangelist (someone's actual job title...)

I'm in some rather lovely company in the project - Cory Arcangel (who's Barbican Curve show opens Feb 9), Oliver Laric, and Aids-3D.

Nate Boyce

Popped into a group show at Vilma Gold 'Extension' and saw Nate Boyce's work for the first time. Amazing videos that I cant recommend enough. You can watch an early one (not in the show) here. The still above are all from his videos. Interview below.

Post Internet

I'm slightly in love with how well done I Heart Photograph is becoming. This essay by Artie Vierkant was very interesting.... and lead to me the blog Post Internet. Made me feel all excited again about how the internet is interacting with art again and revved up for the exhibition at MU i'm curating for April.....
