Three things that made me happy this week


1) My E-Vapor-8 show at 319 Scholes in New York last May was mentioned as one of the 10 Pivotal Moments in Digital Art in 2012. Blush.

2) Island Pavillion launched with some rather mouthwatering prints by some good young artists (including a few I have put in past exhibitions and projects Alexander Peverett, Sara Ludy and Petra Cortright) The digital psychedelic Peverett above was obviously my top choice.

3) Mark Leckey is doing a Artist Film Club event at the ICA Jan 9. I bought tickets months ago and am overexcited its almost here.
