Duh, it's a skeleton. Well, Cro-Magnon Man, to be exact.
Here's a whole display of heads

Walking through the NYC Metro ~ The Fulton Street Station

Construction underground brought me closer to New Yorkers and tourists walking through the Metro corridors

In Imponderabilia (1977, reenacted in 2010) two performers, both completely nude, stand in a doorway. The public must squeeze between them in order to pass, and in doing so choose which one of them to face.

Walking through the William and Fulton Street Stop in the NYC metro reminded me of Marina Abramovic’s work (minus the nudity, of course). The daily grind, hustle, and bustle of the Metro alone made me think of this wonderfully complex piece on human interaction (or lack of it).

Virgin Flyer

Yes, I’m on vacation and still acclimating to time zones. I’m also blogging via my phone, which seems apropo and trying to capture the interesting stuff.

My first experience of Virgin America was great (and it didn’t hurt – okay, bad joke). I can see why people love flying VA!!

Red: An Interactive Experience really did engage me. Why? I believe it was due to the humorous caricatures going through the in-flight instructions to the multitude of games. Essentially, the flyer has a choice when it comes to food, entertainment, or even partaking in social metworking via seat-to-seat chat functionality.

Then again, is this much convenience necessary? Everything available at your fingertips? Yeah, sure (in moderation, of course). Again, more to follow…

Leaving on a jet plane…

Don’t know when I’ll be back again.

Actually, I do, I’ll be back in San Francisco before Halloween!

Anyway, I wanted to catch up on posts amd make sure you were able to check out the current exhibition, Revolutions per Minute: The Evolution of the Record, at SFO near the Virgin America gates. Pretty rad!! Also snapped a photo of some installation art as well. Enjoy and More to follow!!
