i was on facebook (first mistake) putting up art show promotion stuff and saw an acquaintance asking for computer advice about a slow, 6 year old windows laptop. the thread was already full of shitlords demanding that he install Ubuntu (and run Photoshop/sketchup in a VM, lmao) and i commented (second mistake) that with a laptop that old, with slowdown symptoms, if it wasn’t fixed by a windows reinstall it was very very likely a hard drive or motherboard issue. a bunch of goons jumped on me to correct me (apparently when you have a big beard, even figuratively, laptop components just never wear out), so i went to PM and was like “yo im not going to get into a public throwdown as the token girl v a bunch of open source shit heads so here’s what i think you should do” and literally the first thing the OP says to me, a dude i met once 6 years ago at an art show we were both in and havent spoken to since, was:
It takes me having a computer malfunction to get you to say hi, huh? :)
it never fucking stops
My latest piece “Cordyceps” was created for Travis Louie’s ZOMBIE show in New York city. Press release:
NEW YORK, NY (May 25th, 2013) –When most of us hear the mention of the word “zombie”, it brings up images from George Romero’s “NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD” movies, the AMC television series, “THE WALKING DEAD”, and both Max Brooks’, “Zombie Survival Guide” and “World War Z”. Contemporary society has become obsessed with this dead, cannibalistic phenomenon. Yet the earliest appearances of zombies date back to African and Caribbean religious mythologies. Some argue even earlier manifestations can be found in the “Epic of Gilgamesh” and “New Testament Book of Daniel”. It wasn’t until the early 20th century, that zombies first made their debut in American popular culture. From then onward, the horror paradigm evolved from bewitched, voodooed creatures, to the decaying undead with a taste for human flesh.
In the past few years, the images of the walking dead have appeared in numerous ad campaigns, countless video games, and organized “zombie walks” across the USA. It seems everywhere we look, people have “zombie” on the brain. With this art show, we asked 50 artists to interpret the word “zombie”. What is it about living dead that intrigues us? Is it the idea that they were once like us? Are the masses really consumer “zombies” programmed to receive and carry out the demands of commerce, by going out and shopping for the latest things they’ve been convinced that they need? Or is the zombie sensation just another popular culture craze? Get your zombie on with us this summer.

If I can find one of those last-minute cheap tickets I’ll be attending, but I’d say the chances of that are minimal. It looks like an incredible lineup, and what little I’ve seen so far of the contributions are really excellent.
