Man on the Bike

Hey, I found a link to what Tom mentioned in the seminar this morning. This guy is really interesting, he makes art under the name Loren Munk and then has something called "the James Kalm report". He goes to all the major shows in NYC so you get to see them when you can't make it! Check it out RS

Pacific Standard Time

Hi all,

Check out this review in the Times about the epic exhibitions happening RIGHT NOW in LA. What I thought was most interesting was this bit at the end:

“Pacific Standard Time” is a great argument for museums concentrating first and foremost on local history, for a kind of cosmopolitan regionalism, if you will. It sets an example that other curators in other cities should follow, beginning in my mind with Chicago and San Francisco. If America has more than one art capital, it probably has more than two.

Is Saint Louis next???

KickA$$ handouts for printmaking

Hey y'all Today during the pronto plate demo Lisa mentioned Kevin Haas and how his website has some handouts about the different technical information in printmaking! They Look like they would be really helpful

Rinse Cycle Theater

As a service aesthetic project for my community, I set up a movie projector outside the laundry room in the basement of a fraternity house on campus. In doing so, waiting to move your clothes from the washer to the dryer (and eventually out of the dryer) has become a much more enjoyable experience.

*Prize to anyone who can guess the movie in this photograph

Service Aesthetic by KW

On October 17th, in the Athletic Complex at Wash U, I loaded up three vending machines with dollar bills, so that the next person that wants to buy a snack will go to the vending machines and find that it's already paid for.

Pop Goya

For myyyy service aesthetics project I drew various figures/portraits from Francisco Goya's series of prints: Los Caprichos. I then made stickers out of them and paired them with silly phrases that are commonly used in pop culture. I put them up around campus/University City in hopes that they would make people smile and/or laugh upon seeing them. At the same time, I hope they might make people more aware of Goya's work.

Here are a few of my interventions, I hope you find and can enjoy the others for yourself :-)


Service Aesthetic

For my service aesthetic I slipped post it notes into borrowed library books in the hopes that the next borrower will smile or be amused by my small notes.


anya's hair!

I know you all have been wondering who Anya's awesome hairstylist is... Cutting Anya's hair is a service aesthetic I have to live with. Someone please persuade her to buy a razor thing, otherwise it looks all choppy in the back (see today).


Service Aesthetics: Martin Stylez

While I was in Chicago, my brother was away from home visiting a college, so for my service aesthetics project, I organized his room so that it would be clean when he got back.

Pre-Crit Massages!

For my service aesthetic project, I gave back massages in the studio the night before our peer critique. It seemed like the recipients were quite pleased with my art:

Service Aesthetics

For our service aesthetic project, we, Jessica and Carmi, teamed up to offer free henna tattoos to fellow students living at the Wash U Co Op. While a large group of people was sitting and watching a show together, we made our rounds creating original designs for whoever was interested. We found that many people were very excited by the prospect of receiving personalized body art, and even those who didn't want to partake at least loved watching it happen.
