Afternoon at LACMA

by Wendy on June 29, 2011

Finally joined the ranks of the goth gawkers for Tim Burton’s exhibit. Also viewed “The Mourners” (ghostly looking tomb sculptures). Favorite of the day was Christian Marlclay’s “The Clock”…spent 40 minutes watching the video montage but could have sat there for hours.

Art In the Streets

by Wendy on June 27, 2011

Ran around downtown and visited the Art in the Streets exhibit at the Geffen. Next door to the gallery Levis has set up a Film Workshop so we created some turntable animations¬†. They have some cool workshops and nice list of guest speakers coming up. Rounded out the afternoon eating sushi in Little Tokyo while be entertained by “Heck Yeah Karaoke”.

Pontus is one of our favorite local  artists to visit. His work outgrew his Venice space and this is his new studio in Inglewood.

A day scouting museums

by Wendy on June 17, 2011

Saw some interesting work from sculptor David Smith at LACMA, a neato cardboard exhibit by Ann Weber at the Craft and Folk Art Museum, and an entomology installation. All that wonderful art, but we must admit that the most fun was had playing in the BCAM freight elevator!

 

 

Venice Art Walk

by marky on June 03, 2011

May 22nd was the annual Venice Art walk and auction.

We loved watching people respond to the birdhouse. Even though the organizers didn’t hang the work up as it was designed, it drew a lot of attention and operated fine just sitting on a table.

flip book 2

(or was it number 3)
Building a flip book requires a lot of experimentation.
This is a 36 frame ditty that makes us smile… I made the flip book mechanism, but it’s waiting for the right frame.
