Thank to anyone who visited my hallway extravablandza at the city wide open studio armory weekend. For those unaware, I was holding an intensive two-day research project in which I set out to determine if people like free candy, occasionally taking breaks to pick up art prints that mysteriously would not stick to crumbly bare plaster walls. The results may choc you.

I do not know “art people,” I do not have a lot of understanding of how to use big spaces or how to enlist help to seem organized or “legitimate,” so the attention I got a from a few visitors, who really seemed to CARE that I was there, even though I am a terrible carpenter, am not in touch with my heritage, and am trying to amuse rather than shock or guilt or whatever, that means a lot to me, even if I barely cover my expenses. The genuine interactions with real people are more important than the money (though money is more important than plenty of things), or having to get 150 pounds of nonsense up and down two flights of stairs and in and out of a building with no doors in convenient places. That makes me think, perhaps this IS going SOMEWHERE not 100% disastrous, or potentially could if I became able to do more of the things I said I could not do.

And YES, I do sell art prints! Alas I do not have an order form up and running as of yet but I will make that my project for this week if not tomorrow and you see if I don’t. Any objects in the awkward art page section can theoretically be printed and sent anywhere but you will have to contact me directly such as at ears@bimshwel.com

Also if you took pictures of my paintings and walked off without taking a card, writing in the guestbook, making eye contact or in any way acknowledging I existed, as if this is “found art” that nobody made and you are great for discovering, or alternatively like I am a goon for daring to show silly nonsense in your serious art converted squatter mansion, then you won’t see this message so I do not need to say what I hypothetically think of that, which is good because I am usually exaggerating when I have thoughts like that.


I probably did not make as many sales as last year, but I was definitely more organized; compare the size and shape of my post-show tape ball from this year with last year’s.

    a stray cat just walked across my keyboard and this is what it typed by accident sez:

    The concept of art exhibitions are funny to me to think of. Whenever I hear it, have this image in my head that stuck-up, big bearded, serious looking art critics wearing glasses with high dioptries go there, closely examine the pictures (which are like made of two curved lines), and say things like “This piece demonstrates the sense of pre-adolescent fears and tension!”

    And then, having all… THIS! On an exhibition! If I was stumbling across this place… no, even if I was deliberatly going there by will, I would hardly believe it that it’s there! All this zany, mischievous and patheticly fun genious can be contained on real paper and held safely at one place? And that a humanoid organism is reponsible for it? How can the visitors be so calm about it? I would probably even punch you in the face* to check and believe it!

    *or probably not because my powers are limited

    I’ve sent an order by e-mail, check for it. Glad to see you recognize and appreciate the best qualia of the situation. “genuine interactions with real people” +1.

    cat:
    There are people involved with the city wide open studio situation, though I cannot verify the nature of any pertinent facial hair, who went through the list of artists and “curated” certain special ones for a “tour,” who got a magic printout certificate identifier thing beside their setups and presumably are highlighted on the map given to visitors. I had the privilege of being placed immediately beside one of those people and getting to see my art swiftly avoided in favor of that more orderly display across two days. I began to feel desperate for validation, so to some degree I will take what I can get. I have plenty of punchable characters so I cannot fault anybody for feeling a desire for thematically appropriate violence.

    dhraiden:
    Oh beans I did not actually get the thing set up yet. I have been all over the place trying to find a situation that works. I started getting paranoid about using a system that would force people to send a payment before I even knew what they were asking me for.

    I put too much effort into enlisting people who do not “get” it at all.
