Edward Tufte’s Philosophical Road Signs

Using the format of diamond signs that provide alerts and warnings about the road ahead, this series of works on canvas shows philosophical alerts, imperatives, and thoughts about the path past and future. This all started with real diamond signs made by a traffic sign company. I placed them along a curved road leading to my sculpture fields.

"Art is art and everything else is everything else" is Ad Reinhardt, and “Just show up” is supposedly something Woody Allen wears on a t-shirt.

When I met with the dean, it was the only time in my life when that sense of Yankee superiority worked in my favor. I told him I’d just moved to New York from Huntsville, Tex. I said we had terrible art in Huntsville, but we didn’t use garbage for art. The dean understood immediately. I walked into that meeting as a vandal and left as a Philistine.
— Robert Leleux, on the time he mistook installation art for trash, quoted in this NYTimes article, "Texans Thrive in New York City"

Play Me, I’m Yours

From April 1 to May 1, 16 pianos will hit the streets of Austin as part of Art Week Austin hosted by Art Alliance Austin. Located throughout downtown in public parks, streets and squares, the pianos are for any member of the public to play.

This is the kind of installation art I love. Thanks, @bonitasarita!

Inky crash in Boston

A tractor-trailer hauling industrial printer cartridges rolled over this morning on the ramp from Route 128 North to Interstate 95 North in Peabody, spewing ink across the roadway.

Candy Chang turned the side of an abandoned house in New Orleans into a chalkboard where people can write what they’d like to accomplish before they die.
