Copenhagen Day 24: Mega-Post of Death

Image Description Here
I woke up one morning with a delightful electric shock style hairdo, so I matted down the sides into a fashionable 'faux-hawk' that the youth are so fond of these days. Deanna and I messed around taking photos of it...

It was raining on the days leading up to the opening, and I was very busy trying to finish painting the heads. Many 15 hour days stumbling out of bed to work and stumbling back into bed at 2 am. 3 days with only a paintbrush or spoon in my hand every single minute.

I tried to spray some coating on one head, and the paint started bubbling up. Disaster! The head was totally fucked up and I had to spend a bunch of time I didn't have trying to repair it.

On Monday, I had an interview for the leading financial newspaper in Copenhagen. Apparently, it is the place to go to read serious art reporting I am told...

So I sent them some of these Faux-Hawk photos that Deanna took and of course...

Here is me during the opening. The opening is my least favorite part of doing an exhibition. It is awkward for me. I get most happy right after we finish installing everything. Then I go into a mild depression.

At our after dinner at a Thai restaurant, I took this photo of our dessert for our pal Stacy. It turns out that the owner of the restaurant makes documentary films about Graf artists, who would have guessed?

Fuck you ed,that cocaine thing is mad matter,the magazine you know,mad magazine.Read a local newspaper the other day the frontpage with one of tese table photos.Title something about high number of people wasting their money on bad quality cocaine,I think it said,or a tall number of people.Anyway your art looks good.That one with the dung in the gut,is that your interpretation after you drank beer one time and it weint into your shit and souaked up into your abdominen,and it lasted till like thursday?Rain in summer so romantic.That couple is that your preferance that pawns carry chicks.Like school.

First thoughts were,yes im gonna sell it.Start a band call it barr.Skate rock.Not like those eighties one those heavy metal ones with whirling people around on the crowd,but skate rock.

Wow,they actually printed that faux-hawk. You,with your army of heads. Do you like watching people twist their heads and move around all funny to read what the heads are saying?Or do people not read them to avoid looking like a weirdo.

ed you got upper arms like a mans thights,there.Wish you could hold deanna up in one shot while waterskiing,while holding the other hand to your fore head like a soldier while holding the handle between your teeth.
