Something from my other site:



(We have open studios in a week and a half which are pretty much the biggest deal of the year cause all the gallery people from Toronto come down to check out our stuff and listen to a famous artist give a grand lecture, this year it is Mike Nelson who won the Turner Prize and represented Britain in Venice.  Blah so much work to do yet among papers, teaching, marking, living AND BF birthday)

    You must have glitter in your hair/under your nails/stuck to your jeans all the time. I love the magma-ey orangey yellowey disc a lot. I like the way it looks wet and angry and festering (in the photo at least).

    Hahaha. Yeah. During a valentine’s day craft night kobi decided to glitter up her card. On the carpet. Yes. She drizzled glue, dumped glitter, and then DUMPED THE EXCESS GLITTER ON TO THE CARPET. As if carpet is an appropriate area to dump an excess of any detritus NEVER MIND GLITTER. Me and stanly (my vaccuum cleaner) had a pow wow. But not before I yelled at her (without shame, in front of everyone. I was supported as it was universally agreed to have been a silly thing to do)….

    I fucking hate glitter. Tmo’s boyfriend’s band (Topless Gay Love Techno Party) are gaining a lot of popularity around here. I would be happy about it except they have a habit of dumping BUCKETS of glitter on the crowd. Everyone seems to enjoy it but I personally did not love finding glitter for weeks in my bed, in my jackets, in my hair brush and under my nails each time I scratch my head. I fucking hate glitter.

    I can’t find a video with the mass glitter….but this is close:

    And (small detail) you have Gerry coming your way shortly to be there with you! So excited for both of you and jealous that he gets to be by your side while you experience it all.
    The discs (one raised one rather flat) both look as though they could be seen through a microscopic glass slide. They all have so much life to them. Nearly threatening.
    You sound swamped, but so engaged. Thrilling.
