Like a pendulum, Rapunzel's weave of life swings back and forth, the arrival of her patriarchal prince infinitely postponed

The fall is filled with great metaphors for unrealized fairytales

Me after spending a week with Agamben's homo sacer: bleeding in the eye, the brain, and sanity.
Berrrrr.
Pain, the state of exception has usurped the norm. .

Wonwoo Lee's amazing interactive installation at Nars foundation open studios. Asked to submit a form for his Lost and Found station, I wrote down "basic income" as my lost item. This is what he returned me 🏧💲💰 Also his coco cola ball is hilarious

My stupid solution to artist huang yongping's censored piece at the guggenheim. Theater of the World, originally featuring live insects and reptiles locked inside a bridge and panopticon structure, is meant to evoke systems of power and the brutality of society, as the animals fight and devour each other. Under the pressure of animal rights activists, the animals were forced to be removed. In response to that, my idea is to crudely photoshop guests and the bar at the opening party onto the cages. A silly metaphor for the short, brutish, claustrophobic lives we all lead...

Had a great time at the #socratesannual today. Navigation of the physical and social no longer had to be confined to exhibition plaques, but can b found in natural backdrops and meandering pathways in the park. Some fave works are Moeinedin Shashaei's babylon tower made of casts of strangers mouths; Devra Freelander's virtual sunrise set against the manhattan skyline; Joe Bochynski's burial of #potus; Wang Xu's dynamic portrait-fountain of the resident gardener; Doreen Garner's hanging apothecaries filled with body parts and pearl...plus the unusual sighting of a burger backpack

Just some random crap i saw at #makerfaire over the wknd. Mega-elevated rave bike with added princess seat for the doggo (if i was a dog id be terrified to ride this), tiny racer bus (i want to take this to school everyday), diy 3d printer, and demonstration of personal property surveillance system (someone needs to make it into a horror film). Technology always occupies this surrealism realm, where it is constantly pulled betw a resistant diy ethos, and appropriation by social/state institutions. .

Still swooning over Spider Lilies, a taiwanese lesbian film i watched over the weekend. Isabella Leong plays this moody tattoo artist who dresses like a sociopath highschooler/ladykiller from japanese animes. Even though there was no chemistry whatsoever betw the two leading characters, i loved how genre-bending the film was, crossing betw horror movie, weerasethakul-esque tropical dreamland, and shakespearean tragedy. It is in all a moralizing tale: every time you have sex, someone close to you dies. Behold the power of forbidden love...

Have gold? Flaunt it! Thanks to @nbj.z for modelling their sadboy look. Dm me for deets!
