Tutorials 22nd and 24th Jan

The start of a new semester, and after a trip to New York to visit the studio of the artist Luca Buvoli, a tutorial with the artist Jordan McKenzie produced some interesting conclusions.
His recommendation was to create work based on A-ha, and to edit the artist into the Take On Me video.
This was also insisted in a second tutorial with another lecturer, who said the same.
I would never have taken such a suggestion seriously, however, references to Baudrillard were used to verify the seriousness of this suggestion.
I concede that this idea would be interesting as an artist creating a piece involving collaborations with the band themselves; it has Las Meninas references....
Such hard work *sighs*

For taking part in Magne Furuholmen's Scrabble exhibition (also known as "Mange Magne") last Autumn (see below) the artist has been bestowed with a personally signed letter from Mags in gratitude for the contribution, and also a limited edition CD of the sound part of the installation. The artist reserves the right to play the CD to subdue boring conversations at will.
Collaborations with Magne are ongoing.
