great piece on the show by the hundreds. (thanks for dropping by, fellas)
coverage to come on current tv and juxtapoz.
BTW, some images of the art are floating around…it’s too bad you can’t really get a feel for the pieces from the images online. most of the pieces are around three to four feet tall. the one that you see on the splash page (and the background here) is called “ICON.” as you can tell in the close-up shot, there’s a ton of detail that you miss when you’re not standing in front of the actual piece. ICON is 8 feet tall by 6 feet wide, slightly metallic, and made up of thousands of dollar signs. yes, i placed each one by hand.
the show is open at the japanese american national museum now through august 3rd. please drop by and check it out.
