one million new links to friend art

Chris Purdie

Brian Thibodeau

i'm slowly finding even more of my friend's websites. the fact that these two seem to go so well together is completely circumstantial.

one million floortapedstripe paintings

Jim Lambie was here. We were there Friday.

Dear Hirshhorn,
How are you consistently so good to me? Thank-you for the Gober butter last year, the Ron Mueck giant in 2002, and for the Juliao Sarmentos when i first found you in 1999 as an eager an innocent youngster...and for the great time again just now. love, j a r e d.

thats my Burger King Starwars watch, the Luke/storm trooper edition. it served me well in this strange land without time or space.

Lauren Clay!

this hovering glitter laden eyelash form was suspended by two skinny belts and excited Aaron to no end.

Martin Puryear!

the Hirshhorn basement featured John Baldessari as curator showing things that interested him from the collection. There was an Anish Kapoor that seriously freaked us out - it was like a black hole and a sphere simultaneously in real space. Lauren got scared, Aaron got titillated, and i was hypnotized - sucked toward it like a zombie toward living flesh. after experiencing the inexperiencible i am prepared to give Anish the MacArthur Genius Award - at least he deserves it over whats her face that makes the complex technical paintings on vellum...oh yeah: Julie Mehretu.
there was also a great Anselm Kiefer show that we weren't allowed to take photos of and a meh Baldessari show that there was no point to take photos of upstairs.

and now the real reason for our d.c. trip: Joe McSpadden!

eat your heart out, Cassian. actually, it was so uncomfortable that you may not have enjoyed the opening despite your love of the McSpaddens.

the sweatband isn't any longer for show as it was in the Lambie room - it was a million degrees hot.

Aaron and Joe love each other like twins. i'm so glad they didn't dress exactly the same on purpose - that would have completely ruined the moment.

take us home tonight, mr. metro

thanks for the photos Lauren and Aaron!

one million near deaths in famous waters

Brooke was a sweetheart during most of "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles Across North America 2006!", but something about the falls brought out her meanie pants. maybe it was because we were on the canadian side...

Spiraling into the Jetty.

i can't take myself anywhere.

one million earth art portraits

one year ago today the Spiral Jetty looked like something out of Starwars V.

Chris Coy

Ruel Brown

Allan Ludwig

Gian Pierotti

Karate Kids I

there are snakes in them there desert hills

so make sure to use the buddy system and keep well hydrated

The Spiral Jetty comes with my highest recommendation : you will discover directions in the title's link and should go see it this month before school. If i ever figure out how to blog video you shall witness some more of our jetty adventures later... talk about the perfect weekend adventure right before leaving Utah to move to artschool.
