…which my friend Emily planted and tends, is one of the things (along with the roaming sheep) I am most looking forward to on my next residency from late July until early September at that nirvana in New Hampshire…
…will be the site for my upcoming show called “Something for Everyone” (which will include a staff-managed veggie garden and compost pile at the entry, a dancing platform and architecture for flying squirrels out back, a Sundown Schoolhouse dome for workshops on the front lawn, plus the living room of a local residence in the ..
…are what I like to show as people are getting seated for my talks these days, because they make me happy and relaxed, and maybe the audience feels warmed-up vicariously through watching us exercise to Lucky Dragons (more on those awesome folks later) music. (Practicing Moving webpage and full s..
…(the alternative Los Angeles educational endeavor with visiting faculty from a range of disciplines – from law to science – established by Piero Golia and Eric Wesley in 2005) came over for potluck dinner and conversation this evening – they included Janine Armin, Carl Burmeister, Olivian Cha, Daniel Ingroff, Michael Kontopoulos, Anne Mathern, Lesley Moon, ..
…will be joining Will Allen (Growing Power), Scott Stringer (Manhattan Borough President), and myself in a conversation about the possibilities for publicly growing food in the most unlikely of places – on the streets where we live, in the middle of our cities, and in particular, in New York City – at WNYC’s Greene Space ..
…is where I am this morning – giving an Edible Estates talk to about 240 avid gardeners – which begins with a screening of the Lenape Edible Estate video, as told by Eric Sanderson (Mannahatta Project) – filmed in part on the grounds of the New York Botanical Garden – and afterward it is one ..
…is a smart little store, a highly curated museum of modest global goods (my sister Emily turned me on to it) that is actually run by humans, with everything they do having a real human voice and touch – which is hidden away on an upper floor of a Soho loft building on Spring Street ..
…is a soil fertility study on the National Register of Historic Places running continuously since it was established in 1911 – which I visited before my lecture at the university museum tonight – a talk and visit interestingly co-sponsored and co-hosted by the School of Agriculture and School of Art – the crop rotation field ..
…is so awesome, a group of my favorite L.A. ladies, dancing and moving together, less about being “professional” and more about loving and exploring dance and movement in all of it’s possible forms, mostly interested in what happens when they take it to the streets with friends – I’ve worked with them a lot, on ..
…which I went to see today in Pasadena, is an amazing, depressing, and outrageous (though one-sided) Philadelphia tale revealing a toxic stew of MONEY! (25 billion dollars worth of paintings), POWER! (‘charitable’ foundations, governors and mayors), TOURISM! (the ultimate Impressionist block-buster show), and ART! (that became too valuable for it’s own good, and well beyond ..
…will soon be published by The New Press, and I just received an advance copy in the mail because I first met the author, Stan Cox, in 2005 as the owner of Edible Estate Regional Prototype #1: Salina, Kansas, and since then I have been keeping up with his prolific environmental and political writings – ..
…the phenomenal peripatetic psychedelic video artist (perhaps you recall his brilliant break-out work A Family Finds Entertainment (2004) from the 2006 Whitney Biennial where it was unfortunately presented on a little monitor perched atop a pedestal adjacent to the bustling bank of elevators?) has an riveting/revealing/funny interview in the new issue of Butt Magazine. (more ..
…is where I am having dinner tonight before heading back to L.A. – my favorite place to eat in the Bay Area (762 Valencia St.@ 19th Street in the Mission, but there is also one in Berkeley), everything is so fresh and beautifully presented, and being vegan I become completely overwhelmed by the six page ..
…Yasmin Vobis, Michael Alexander, Hilary Zaic, Jose Esparza, Anne Menke, Sam Dufaux, Jenny Lie Andersen, Alexander Maymind, and Willem Boning is a super survey of fantastical unrealized city plans – 49 of them – depicted graphically in such a way that they begin to have a conversation, and there will be a book launch event ..
…is fantastic: both a collection of very different maps, and a book about Radical Cartography – which I was just revisiting today – by my old friend (and college house-mate) Lize Mogel, and Alexis Bhagat, which they describe on the website thusly: An Atlas of Radical Cartography is a collection of 10 maps and 10 ..
…has just emerged over the past year – founded by Shamim M. Momin and Christine Y. Kim – with energetic nimble activity most welcome in L.A.: variously squatting in local homes and institutions, taking to the streets and ‘public spaces’ (or whatever passes for that here in L.A.), and supporting performance and time-based work – ..
…are featured in New York Times T Magazine, only reaffirming my recent obsession with loose, free-flowing, low-crotch-ed pants – recently noted in my Thai Fisherman Pants post here – this is all I want to wear right now, and I am looking forward to experimenting on the sewing machine with all of the various varieties, ..
…just sent out this exciting announcement: Last week, production began on a new feature film based on Dr. Sacks’s essay “The Last Hippie,” in An Anthropologist on Mars.

…is making some sense of this crazy vast nearly incomprehensible cultural landscape we call Los Angeles with a great website, a directory of all of the local venues, online and printed maps, regular announcements, plus it’s own newspaper – and with ten MFA art programs in the area (Art Center College of Art and Design, ..
