The lamp post at Domy got yet another sweater just in time for Austin’s annual E.A.S.T. pilgrimage. Make sure to stop by on your route this weekend – Domy’s hosting a reading tomorrow night with Bill Baird and Thax Douglas. Don’t miss it!
ps See the lamp post’s previous incarnation here.
The internet has shown some love lately – check out an interview on ACL’s official page about the temporary installation earlier this month. The Statesman has a great picture of my daughter and me installing the art sign at the festival. And Juxtapoz also picked up on ACL as well as my recent trip to Bali. Check out this flickr photo taken at ACL – I love it!
Unrelated to ACL… but this is way overdue. A big thanks to Art Yarn for this post on the Rome exhibit back in the summertime.
Another Austin City Limits – this time with a little ART. Big thanks to Emily Clark, Sarah Muench, Tony Tuzzolino, Patricia de la Rosa, Guadalupe Maria Delgadillo and Maria San Esteban… couldn’t have done it without them!

The chicken wire didn’t carry the light down the tubes as well as vellum… and why don’t they make fireproof vellum? Check out more photos on ACL’s flickr site. I love this one!
Magda is working up a BIG project at Etsy headquarters in Dumbo, Brooklyn. This is the beginning. We stopped by today to get a feel for the installation, make some friends and eat some amazing food.
Julie is coordinating the project with Etsy, and Arnetta is opening up new worlds over at the Fashion Institute of Technology. This installation could not be happening without these amazing people and many more at the Etsy Labs.
And yes, we even covered the protruding vents – it’s an homage to Granny Squared after all. Stay tuned for the real airduct cozy extravaganza coming up soon…

Marfa is a magical mecca for modern art in the West Texas desert. Unlikely? A little bit. Donald Judd immigrated there from New York in the 70′s, acquiring old ranches, military forts and other old west type buildings and reclaiming them with his art. Since his death in the 90′s, tons of artists have continued to trek to Marfa, or live there. Enter El Cosmico. It’s like a hotel of sorts, but the rooms are these nifty Airstream trailers. Last weekend Magda took a carload of knitting and friends to dress up one of the trailers.
So yeah – if you’re looking for an escape anytime soon, go stay in the knitta’d Airstream! Check out El Cosmico’s Trans-Pecos Festival of Music and Love coming up on September 24-25. Also, there’s the first annual Marfa 100 — a 62 mile/100k benefit bikeride for the fight against cancer. Continue reading
SKY.it posted a video with a sneak peak of Il Lusso Essenziale, the Roman festival I tagged this month. And yes – that’s right. My first gallery installation. The video is all in Italian, but the article is handily translated by google here. Thanks Rome, for being good to me.
More recap and pictures coming soon.
I’m in Rome, setting up for Il Lusso Essenziale [and on Facebook here], a Roman arts festival that celebrates “the rediscovery of the extraordinary nature of everyday life,” or, the luxury of the essential. This Smart Car is only the first bit of my participation…
Thanks for the love Austin!
