Depression, over consumption, global warming, economic inequality and a seemingly never ending list of problems haunt our society as we try to produce a livable and just social network around the world. Attacked individually these issues seem insurmountable, and yet this report by the PIRC and the WWF suggests that another simpler issue might be at the heart of each of these individual problems. You can guess what that issue is by the nature of this blog but I suggest reading this report for a better understanding of the systemic problems created by an overabundance of desire creation materials promoted by the advertising industry.

New Work For Art Basel Miami Underbelly Exhibition
Below are two pieces I made for the Underbelly Exhibition at Art Basel Miami this year. While I would love to go on about the Underbelly project, this may not be the appropriate venue so i'll just add a blurb about the work. Each of these pieces are made using a single book. In this case, Arizona is made with the Iliad and Lady Kaylin with the Odyssey. Each book is deconstructed and then reassembled as a single page which is then cut and reassembled in a relief layout. The drawing is made with ink and spray paint and fabric and the whole thing is illuminated with flickering LED lighting to give the appearance of an old broken fluorescent sign. This is then all assembled in my favorite frame appropriated from the streets of New York. Enjoy!

One by One, Marketers Plan for a Singular Event
The date on Friday will be Nov. 11, 2011, and the triple play of elevens — being rendered as 11/11/11, 11-11-11 and 11.11.11 — is inspiring a commercialized celebration on Madison Avenue. There are advertisements, promotions, events and even a party to be hosted by an agency named, yes, Eleven.
