Fluids: a happening by Allan Kaprow

posted by on 2008.04.30, under Uncategorized


This past Saturday Jerri Allyn and I coordinated the recreation of Fluids: A Happening by Allan Kaprow. In conjunction with the exhibition Allan Kaprow – Art as Life at MOCA, LACMA organized this recreation at several sites throughout the LA area. The project was supported in part by an in-kind donation from the Union Ice Company (which rocks!) and by generous support from the Getty Foundation. The original happening occurred in 1967 as part of Kaprow’s exhibition at the Pasadena Museum of Art. Our recreation at the Westchester Park was completed in just over 2 hours and lasted untill about 2:50 when the west facing wall fell. The whole structure collapsed shortly after 3:30, just as the LA Art Girls were placing ice from Fluids sites at the Getty, Rios Clementi Hale Studios/notNeutral and A Place Called Home.

Hey – if you have not yet seen Muxtape, a nice little website for making mixes, check it the hell out. It has a great looking interface, and I made a lovely mix for you to listen to on it.

Lovely lovely mix here.

Orrin made one too.

GO make one, then send me a link, OK?

A visual search engine based on the way Apple’s Leopard and iTunes interface. The search itself is not as good as Google, but I bet this company is hoping to be another Google acquisition… Search for something using SearchMe.

Some Posters

Some posters I have designed over the past year or so. The Imagination one is older, and it won me a crazy-big old school video game controller in an online contest.

See our Flickr page for larger images. I may do a print run of some of these, we’ll see.

Dear Taxpayer,

Your contribution this fiscal year was put toward the maintenance of an F-15 fighter jet, which on October 16 dropped a bomb on the town of Ramadi, in Iraq, killing, among others, Muhammed Salih Ali (age six) and Haifa Ahmed Fuad (age eight) and Saad Ahmed Fuad (age four). Little Haifa and Saad were sister and brother; you helped accomplish their deaths by a jet very similar to, if not exactly the same as, those that fly over the stadium just after the American Idol winner sings “and the home of the brave” at the Super Bowl.

Thank you and congratulations.

{yeah, I stole that whole from a Ben Metcalf story at harpers.org}
