I'm incredibly disappointed.
I've been looking forward to seeing the SAIC Advanced Fibers group show, Ano Viejo, all semester, but alas, last night during the the opening reception, I was in the Artist's Books studio, chipping away at the big assed block that is my final project and was unable to attend. I wanted to go support two of my loveliest friends, Alex "Ziggy" Miller and Alex Zak, as they'd been working all semester to create epic-sounding pieces. Ziggy made artifacts (and means of which displaying them) from a fictional archeological dig and A. Zak created an installation consisting of a hand-crafted log cabin and several looped video pieces.
I'm so proud of both of them and am so annoyed that I couldn't get to the Tom Robinson Gallery to check thangs out. As my brother Aaron sometimes says audibly, "sigh."
You're in my thoughts, fellas, for you've each accomplished a feat of badassery and I'm more than proud of and inspired by you.
