they're making humanure commodes for everyone they know. cutting off a bit of sewer pipe to glue on to a toilet seat, which will set snug over a 5 gallon food bucket. folks will bring back bucketloads of the feces/sawdust mixture that will be used to create the grand pyramids of humanure. after they rot for a year or two they may start a humanure-powered csa. your box of broccoli will cost you $50 plus a bucket of fully digested organics.
this artist wants to make work that changes everybody's ideas about food. by using counter-intuitive humor they feel they can make kids be less uptight about eating decisions, and help reduce the incidence of teenage anorexia. they also feel that they can raise the profile of good foods that aren't worthy of corporate endorsement.
these folks were getting a little caught up in baudrillard's simulations and "the finest allegory of simulation", borges's cartographers. they thought they'd have more food if they made a full-size representation of their garden. sorry kids, it only works like that in the mind, man! then their art dealer stopped by and thought this would be a great expo piece. wanted it even bigger so it could cover the field in a sports stadium! folks will always be wowed by the big art.
this person is painting wisconsin death trip on an I-94 overpass just north of the illinois border. just did a project on wdt with the students...
alfredo did an awesome performance here. this segment may be the best sound piece i've ever contributed to.
here's renee's fox dance. this was a bit of a social experiment. two screens facing opposite directions with chairs set up. organized student disruptions. my kind of normal music, but to most folks weird-ass sounds, coming from the middle of the room. people stayed glued to the screens, man!
it's a sculpture of george segal in the style of george segal. it's suppose to help keep the foxes and racoons away from the chickens. but what mostly happened here is that mastering a classic sculpture technique really helped this artist gain confidence in all of their artmaking activities. plus it was something to do with the old wire net laying around the coop.
this is the coolest artist. this person gets naked in nature and then spins around and takes pictures with the holga camera. the blurry, uncomposed pictures reflect the fugitive powers of the natural world. nobody really gets very engaged with any of the images beyond proclaiming "this one is cool", but everyone knows this person is the best artist.
they're getting interviewed as some sort of swinging nudist artists. they're telling how that isn't really how it is. it's about the blank white canvas, the block of marble... but then freed from that and all other cultural baggage. there is no option but to perform all Art making in the raw. it is not nudism.
