Thesis mid-reviews are going on today and tomorrow at SCI-Arc, if you’re into that sort of thing, drop on by. Get the location here.

Thanks to all the folks who came to the opening last night, hope to be able to post some documentation of it early this week…

In case you missed the hilarious interview with Ozzy Osbourne on the radio last night (on Rock Line, broadcast on 93.1 here in LA), here is a link to an also hilarious and slightly disturbing interview from 1982.

Also, remember the Commodore 64? My parents bought one way back in the day, and I played Zork on it for hours at a time. You can play it online here. (yes, I stole this link from themorningnews.org). Enjoy!

I don’t have an explanation for the Old School Painting fetish this morning, but Canaletto’s work is beautiful. The scale of these just doesn’t come across online though.

This one is for Paul. It’s not Canaletto though.

“Critics have said the soaring, swirling ribbons of metal Gehry puts on the outside of his buildings look like the contents of a huge wastebasket.” Which is OK apparently, because everyone still wants him to design their museum and/or gallery. Latest on his project list is the Corcoran Gallery of Art in DC. story here.

In other news, Rise Industries welcomes contributors Paul Wysocan and Michele Jaquis to the blog. As you can see below, Michele is a video installation artist working in LA. She also teaches video art classes at Otis College of Art (Los Angeles) and University of California Riverside. Paul is currently working on his Masters of Architecture at SCI-Arc, and has been known to hang around George Yu’s Design Office. He also may or may not have a few top secret things in the works, but of course I could not reveal them to you here or now.

Fuzzy out here in LA today. Sort of puts you off, since it’s just not supposed to actually act like fall in the fall.

Couple of things for you this week:

One is that Rise Industries contributor Michele Jaquis is having a show this Friday at the Hatch Gallery (Los Angeles). On view will be two video installations:

“Reparations”, in which mundane objects and activities are charged with the symbolism of a greater attempt to make amends for wrongs, whether it is within oneself, between individuals, or between larger groups of humanity; and “Missing”, a two channel video installation showing opposing views of separate airport arrival gates, placing the viewer in flux between the two. In the wake of September 11th, this installation that was originally about the artist’s relationship with her father, is given a new and broader meaning.

The show opens this friday night at 7pm, and will run until November 4th. For more information, see the Hatch Gallery/ Bastard Company website here.

The other is, Rise Industries welcomes new contributor Caleb Hammond. Caleb is a perfomance artist/director who creates and performs in large scale multi-media theatrical performances, most recently at the Yale Center for British Art in New Haven. Hopefully soon I can get up a better description of his work. He should be slinging some news about goings-on over on the east coast, New England, New York, and beyond…
