took the day off to do what I’ve been wanting to do – the most . . .
visit FEAR !!
. . . EATS THE SOUL – all alone and solitary.
soak it in – before it comes down.
get myself a bowl of soup – on a rainy day.
they were filling online orders in the T SHIRT SHOP.
everything in the ‘ATM’ gallery – was just as great – as I remembered.
chrome. koda-chrome. oh, yeah.
OMG – my dream come true – I turned the corner into that little ‘back’ office – and YES !! there was GAVIN – at work.
in my dreams, or what !!
a vision fulfilled. forever. smackdown, crackdown Nancy !! and the photo to prove it.
YES. BE BE BE VERY A-FRAID !!
ok. cold weather. . . . hard gritty city corner.
MARIA – who works freelance (design and production. architectural background) for the TIRAVANIJA STUDIO – dishes.
the kitchen feels third worldly. beachy ? definite – not new Yorky.
the sound system contributed to the Eurotrash ambience – or is that RIO ? some small touristy spot in Mexico . . . Malaysia ? I dunno. another galaxy. the alternate universe 7-11 ? you name it.
where the locals – can come put up – their art !!
SWEENEY, put your red dress, on.
SPENCER SWEENEY, sucking up to the boss ?
portrait of DUCHAMP as GAVIN, and back !!
yeah, was I the only one – who had resist the strong urge – to shop lift ? I bet no.
who else wanted to suck on that. raise your hand.
the soup was delicious. apparently Rirkrit makes it himself, and he is really into it.
oh yeah. rainy day, New York City. it didn’t feel like New York City. but it was in New York City.
and that’s what counts. April 2011.
