finally thank you, somebody….
I rarely post articles about me (or at least I like to tell myself I don’t) , but I really like this article by inhabitat NYC, because of all the install photos. You can see what it took to make this happen. I could not have done it with out my hard working team. They also happened to all be super good looking…not sure how that came about, but I certainly wasn’t complaining. So thank you Tony Tuzzolino, Alex Howell, Nina Zacek, Marcos Torino, Ann Medhurst, Timmy Wood, Elizabeth Trieu, Catherine Cieslewicz, Liz Bucholtz.
And of course the two lovely Karen McClellan and Catherine Smith
And BIG thanks to Patricia, Luzmarie, and Guadalupe for the Herculean effort to knit over 300 different pieces.
Here are a few pics from the article… I know it is dated but still happy somebody wrote about it…..This was on the top of my list this year for favorite projects.
Friends over at MIXING REALITY sent this to me.. It is a collaboration with the amazing
Sarah Applebaum. It’s eye candy at its best with awesome music by
Seventeen Evergreen. enjoy!
I know I should start with the “finer” parts of this amazing and beautiful city, BUT….. if you do not know about cheesymite rolls, you must be enlightened now. It is a bread roll filled with parmesan and (pause) Vegemite, and it’s AWESOME. I am certain this is how Australians cure a hangover, because it is made up of all the cravings one has after too much. I will confess… I brought like 10 of these back with me. I became irrationally worried security would confiscate my bag of stinky bread at the airport….. as if I were smuggling something highly illegal. Fortunately, I returned safely with my beloved bread to Texas…along with UGGS for everyone…..yes, I know, I cringe too.
We arrived sometime before 9 am, dropped our bags off, and stayed very close to the opera house…..and in awe for the next 14 hours….
lovely first day….more to come….too much to tell….
