FLASH: This just in from our friend:

“Geoff, I don’t know if I answered your question directly on the audience’s participation.  Hopefully what will happen is the viewer experiencing the artwork will feel useful and as much a part of the work as the artist or gallery/context.

Also, I must defend myself a little w/ what I said about the mixing of art and life.  I know how romantic it sounds.  I know it sounds like some softy, sensitive and almost cliche outlook.  In all honesty it’s this uneasiness and potential critical outside look that excites me about it all.  Then again it could be my own paranoia.

As a last declaration I’m looking for a site for this project to occur.”

All is well in Notes on Looking land, things are popping. If perchance you can imagine a project such as this taking place in a space that you… run or direct, jump on Wrinkle’s wish to exhibit – he’s easy to find. And imagine if you will – paintings to sell, people dropping their pants, Aaron twisting himself up trying not to appear too romantic – how much fun can it possibly be?
