Dead and Alive Opens at MAD

Need. to. go. to. this. show. NOW. I am knocked out by the catalogue of the new exhibition, Dead and Alive, at The Museum of Arts and Design at Columbus Circle, NYC. Artist Louise Millmann went last night to a preview and gave it rave reviews. Fortune would have it that I'll be in the city tomorrow afternoon to visit a student intern at Krypell Jewelers on 47th and 5th, so I'll be able to give a full, first hand account on both experiences.

By the way, this is my 400th entry-- a big thanks to all of you who check in to read this blog, and a super-sized thanks to those who share comments. It's been a great conversation so far.

Just saw this a few days ago. I'm not sure how i feel about the rodent remains as art work; however i totally fell in love with Lonneke Gordijn & Ralph Nauta's "Fragile Future 3.4". The effusion of nature and technology in this piece is surprising, different and natural. The artists are successful in that the piece appears to be floating while it displays an extremely futuristic perspective of nature's reliance on technology.
