Ex-US Vice Prez, Dick Cheney, was said to be recovering heartily after a transplant of his original, tuckered-out ticker. Cheney trade in Frankenstein’s heart for a fresh one. Dick Head was also feeling full of piss and vinegar following some weekend repairs.
Presenting Trial 3 of You Are Here, my experiment in emotional cartography. You’ll find the full results below. This round of testing took place on March 9th, 2012, over on the Eastside at the Bellevue Arts Museum (BAM). Trial 3 began around dusk for the Members’ Reception, and continued into the evening, during BAMignite. I enjoyed several stellar conversations about the project and was dually excited about all the meaningful questions and new ideas. In fact, I had to create […]
Wa da ta. I’m a tad delayed revealing outcomes from the latest round of You Are Here testing. As you may know, a top-notch group of emotional revelers was analyzed at Sprout V on November 5th. Emotional cartography with live human subjects never goes exactly as planned – it is a fickle and experimental process at best. Since cutting edge technology, handwriting analysis and psychic octopi are used to thoroughly analyze the data, synthesizing an accurate visual of how participants […]
I enjoyed the dinner at Sprout V… as well as several of the presentations. Some folks interacted with my piece You Are Here and I’m cracking the code to unlock how they’re feeling. I’ll share what develops in a few days. In the mean time, here are the negatives.
What’s that, Smokey? You want to second that emotion? Alright, wish granted. I’m polishing up You Are Here for round two of emotional cartography with live human subjects. On Saturday, November 5th I’ll be setting the piece up at at Sprout V. I’d truly love to know how you’re feeling. You know how people always ask how you are, but they don’t REALLY want to hear someone answer anything except “fine”? Screw fine. Fine is not an option at Sprout. […]
I’ve analyzed the initial data from preliminary testing of You Are Here at the NEPO House. Participating 5k Don’t Runners experienced a wide range of emotion. The evidence leads me to suspect that people may be complicated. Feelings registered on the positive side overall, however some subjects experienced a sense of negativity, despite the presence of free tacos. SUBMISSION / FEAR / TRUST REMORSE / SADNESS / DISGUST OPTIMISM / JOY / ANTICIPATION LOVE / TRUST […]
Around high noon, my pal Blair and I arrived at the NEPO house. We were ready to spend our Saturday setting up my artwork for the 5k Don’t Run. Before any assemblage could take place, we volunteered to block off the roads. Power, authority, art, sun – it went to my head. Eventually the perimeter was secured and we started building, just to the east of a giant gold pyramid that would eventually give birth to Hulk Hogan… but I […]
The NEPO House Don’t Run 5k is fast approaching and I’m deep into art mania. Over the last week I’ve been whipping myself into prime creative shape… making 829 little markers for my piece in the 5k called You Are Here. Join the madness this Saturday 9/10/11. Don’t Runners who choose participate in You Are Here will be asked to select markers that appeal to them and tie those onto a larger structure of cord […]
