FOCUS: SOFA. Not just something to decorate with ridiculously overstuffed pillows.
SOFA New York 2011
Posted a bit late on Crafthaus. You can read it here!
I'll hopefully get back in the studio soon since I need to make a few things for the upcoming Metalsmith Exhibit In Print which photos of my jewelry will appear in... The real "announcement" will come a bit later after I redo my jewelry/art website. So just forget that bit for now.
Some things I have learned about walking around with a ginormous camera rig & a badge with the word "PRESS" on it.
1. Everyone looks at you with pleading eyes, especially the artists.
2. I feel bad that I can't photograph & write about everyone/piece I want to.
3. I even feel bad about not photographing & writing about everyone/piece that I don't have any interest in.
4. If you are an artist. or more likely a gallery owner, and you insist on dragging me into your booth and making a scene about it I will take photos and record our conversation (I also utilize a very nice 5.1 surround mic/system for interviews). Once I step out of your booth the photos and interview are deleted. I don't like pushy car salesmen types.
In the meanwhile, in real life, Ive had to move offices which was hell. Hell continues as everything is still not working correctly and the A/C keeps breaking down. And some other things that I will go into at a later date when the issues are resolved. Hopefully resolved. One day. Or year. Perhaps in some parallel, and assuredly better reality, they have already been solved but I am not sure how to read that blog for within this reality. Sorry.
Here's a treat for reading. The backside of a cow. Cow ring that is. The front cost extra.
