En estos casos se sirvió de carcasas antiguas de televisión para construir la pieza básica de la sociedad- la familia o el hombre -uniendo tradición y tecnología, pasado y futuro, sin perder de vista el sentido del humor.
Se parece un poco a este mundo loco que vivimos bloggeando sobre nuestras cosas craftis, no? ;)
Los retratos de artistas y amigos suyos son buenísimos.
No he parado de coser en todo el fin de semana, ultimando las nuevas dolis, a ver si hoy descanso un poco... aunque es un vicio, me encantan los días de fiesta, podría estar así eternamente!
i've been always inspired by the work of this artist. He experimented on the impact of tv and technologies on daylife and created a new media culture. He used vintage television cases to build the man or the family, which are the basics of society, putting tradition and technology together or past and future, always mixed with a lot of humour. This reminds me our daylife, blogging about crafts! doesn't it? ;)
i love his artists and friends' portraits.
you can go until the 6th of June to James Cohan Gallery, if you're in NY, and have a look at the exhibition, the rest can enjoy his work and read about his life on his website.
i've been sewing for all the weekend, i'm finishing new dolls. i'm thinking about having a break today... but i can'tget over it, i love crafting on weekends! i could live weekends for the whole life.
have a nice monday!!
