fantaSTICK!

one week exactly until ottawa’s second nuit blanche

excited. happy

a touch nervous

but mostly curious

my ‘crowd box’ project will be in the byward market zone at Social

NBOG13

i was delightfully reminded of last year’s nuit blanche ‘walk with me’ walking stick project with the arrival of a message from an eleven year old boy named Félix this week. he found the ‘school age’ stick in a library. he wanted to know if he could send the stick abroad. it had been a while since i had heard from one of the sticks. what fun! it made me happy.

…and i take that as a good omen for this year’s project

6:21pm til 4:22am next saturday the 21st

come out

be a part of the art

ALL of the art

the streets will be filled

if you cannot come then send me a tweet @heARTbeatgalART

tell your friends

tell strangers

help me connect with as many people as possible

woot! woot!

strange experiments in creative collaboration

good fun

brooklyn

my trip to brooklyn was long overdue

spent a couple of days wandering around dumbo and williamsburg

…the wellspring of hipsters

NY invented graffiti

art and creativity abound

the streets are quieter and filled with graffiti

i was in heaven, even before my mango snow cone and new cobalt blue leather mini skirt

i filled up on inspiration and bits of material for new work

i cannot wait to get cutting and glueing

(must get through NBO13 in just ten days first!!)

new friend

(here i am making friends with an artist on the street)

(his multi-media cityscape work made me stop)

i heART you NY!

thank you

be back soon…

oddball

i am a stand-up comedy nerd

so when i heard that dave chappelle, flight of the conchords, al madrigal, hannibal buress, kristen schaal, demetri martin and jeff ross were coming to hartford, connecticut with their oddball comedy & curiosity festival, i hopped in my car and drove seven hours. in a heartbeat.

here is the back of my head enjoying flight of the conchords

 

the back of my head enjoyed dave chappelle less

i was so excited to see him and for his big return

however

he did not perform

he smoked cigarettes

chatted with a lady in the audience

mostly he just told us we were a bad audience and left the stage after his contractual twenty-five minutes

i have conflicted feelings

it made me sad

so in sum, laugh, laugh, laugh, happy, happy, laugh, happy, confused, sad, still pretty happy

my many thanks to the other acts

a night i won’t soon forget

cuba libre

withered propaganda stands firm

fewer are the outbursts of graffiti
