Developed at Eyebeam:
On November 15th 2006 I started an 11 month fellowship at Eyebeam in their Open R&D Lab. Here’s a video of some recent projects at Eyebeam. I’m working with 3 other fellows and two senior fellows on projects for the public domain. Mine will focus on art works that involve sustainable energy production. I will post finished projects here, but if you’re interested in more work-in-progress details, the OpenLab just started a blog.
The space is in the Chelsea district of Manhattan and the OpenLab is open to the public at set hours each week. If you’d like to visit, contact me and we can arrange a time.
Building on last weeks theme, life and death situations, this weeks show carries over with a focus on killing and not killing. We hear from a Navy medical worker, a National Guard Recruiter, a former ROTC member, a butcher, and more.
This show features original sound work from John Davis.

On Saturday October 28th I will be on the Frank Prattle radio show hosted by Zeferey Throwell. The guests will be myself and Harrell Fletcher, one of my favorite artists. It should be casual and a lot of fun.
The show airs from 1-2pm on Saturday October 28th on Pirate Cat Radio in San Francisco (also in Los Angeles, but I’m not sure if they air the same broadcast) on 87.9 FM. Afterwards it will be archived on the Frank Prattle site.

The LAB presents
Some Assembly Required – An Artists Talk
Moderated by Mike Arcega and Steven Wolf
With Taro Hattori, Jesse Houlding, Steve Lambert, Francis McIlveen, Yuki Maruyama, and Dan Nelson
Wednesday, September 27th, 7 PM
$3-10 sliding scale admission
At The LAB, 2948 16th Street @ Capp, San Francisco
Please join us for a panel discussion in conjunction with The LAB’s first-ever juried exhibition. This project invited artists to submit work that requires assembly. This phrase is open to interpretation–it can be read as a play on the word assemblage, that the artist needs to assemble his or her work in some way. It can also be read, perhaps with the writings of Alain Robbe-Grillet in mind, to suggest that the work must be assembled by the viewer in order to have meaning. A broad array of work in all media with diverse content, including both objects and performance, is included.
