~15 WARREN . .
this is SPENCER, I believe he is also a musician, or is a musician, but . . he made that large, primitive, folk art like woman’s body, from just under the waist, that towers over the exhibit’s ground floor.
it had a great sense of flair !!
but it was also, very . . ‘bio’.
it could be seen as a metaphor for the TWIN TOWERS, it could just be a funny folk art riff, it sure was way more . . your momma, the mother of all things . .
than your dream girl !!
but . . funny thing about it !!
somebody who works at, or is friends with somebody . . who works at the EAST HOUSTON, LOWER EAST SIDE, NYC branch of AMERICAN APPAREL – must have seen it !!
because check this out: American Apparel displays . . stir up CONTROVERSY !!
so . . ‘bio’.
tell me . . life doesn’t imitate art !! American Apparel !!, as if !!
Spencer . . . nailed it.
JOSH HARRIS, at the common ‘living’ area, at ‘QUIET’ . . the Pseudo-funded year 2000, million dollar $$ weeks-long . . total blast . . downtown MILLENNIUM NEW YEAR’S EVE PARTY, which took place in 2 old loft buildings in lower Manhattan, specifically . . yes, Broadway and Franklin Streets. yes: Tribeca.
the huge, 99 resident artists, 24/7 live-in, ground-breaking . . party, art show / installation . . was open to the public 24/7 . . and, had surveillance cams everywhere. the digital, and uncensored, footage was screened in ‘realtime’ through-out the event, and most importantly . . on smaller / personal . . multi-channel monitors in every individual ‘niche’ in the grid-like pod hotel . . housing the in-house crew, and the 99 ‘underground’ downtown resident artist/participants.
and truth be told, a couple of live wire hookers, as well . .
well, did we tell you about: LUVVY ?
this raw, and crazy ‘reality’ footage went on to form the basis of . . ONDI TIMONER’S Sundance 2009 award winning documentary . . ‘WE LIVE IN PUBLIC’.
JOSH HARRIS, is considered by many to be the father of live streaming reality / social media.
aka . . the guy who called, where the digital age was really, R-E-A-L-L-Y . . going to take us.
or, as the film calls him . . the “greatest internet entrepreneur – you’ve never heard of.”
