Look here: I LOVE the work by Morgan Phalen. You have to zoom in for it to make sense.

I am very happy that the Lee Bontecou retrospective is coming to MoMA in July. I love her work, and I think she looks like the nicest person, which is unusual for an artist. Click here to see some more pictures of her work.

I like the way she uses velvet to make an infinitely black space.

If you'd rather see something two-dimensional, that is funny and well-designed, look at this.

I'm sorry I haven't been writing more. I've been very tired from my medication. I guess the idea is that you can't be anxious and depressed if you are in a coma?

A couple of phrases have come out of my mouth recently that I think would make a neat title for a graduate thesis, art installation or first album from an avant garde rock band:

Philosophical Objections to Seduction
The Pros and Cons of Fucking

I'm sitting at my desk coughing and blowing my nose every ten seconds because my head is full of snot and all I can do is make little apologetic sounds though my clogged up nose at my coworkers (because after all, they should not have to listen to my disgusting germ-ridden phlegm-noises all day). One of them just turned to me sweetly and said "don't die, Little Nell".

I know he meant Little Nell the Dickens character, but wouldn't it be great if he meant Little Nell the Rocky Horror actress?

"Circuit bending" sounds like the funnest kind of geek art project! I really want to go to the circuit bending festival that is apparently going on next week.

I think that Sascha and I saw a very highbrow example of this at the Armory Show...Kelly Heaton's scary Tickle Me Elmo coat.

And then there is the Barbie Liberation Organization.
