The Size of My Circles
So I’ve been posting photos of what looks like a grey blob on a large piece of paper. That drawing, Systema Mundi, is actually comprised of lots of circles. See below (and click for larger versions): and that drummer boy in context: Happy Sunday to you and yours, Man

Hi, My Name is...Bruce
Opening tomorrow (Thursday) I have a piece in the Bruce High Quality Foundation’s Brucennial. I find it to be a rather humorous work. Different from what you may be used to seeing from me. The opening starts at 6pm, at 350 W Broadway in Manhattan. Hope to see you there! And now back to our regularly scheduled shenanigans. Thank you.

A Ferlingetti of the Mind
A poem by Lawrence Ferlingetti from ‘A Coney Island of the Mind’ See It was like this when we waltz into this place a couple of Papish cats is doing an Aztec two-step And I says Dad let’s cut but then this dame comes up behind me see and says You and me could really exist Wow I says Only the next day she has bad teeth and really hates poetry — The Aztec two-step...
I posted this in the middle of the night a few nights ago on Twitter, reposting here because I’m still thinking about it, still excited about it, etc. Bilal is one of my favorite contemporary artists. This should be an awesome performance: http://www.wafaabilal.com/html/andCounting.php
Big Red & Shiny Review
My recent performance piece, 24h Best non-Buy got a great review over at Big Red & Shiny. It’s also BRS’s 6 anniversary. Show them some love! And Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s Red! xo, Man
Review and Lots More!
My work at X-Initiative’s BYOA show got a mention here: http://jameswagner.com/2010/02/put_up_your_own_art.html. The take-away line for me is that my “art is pure in concept, form and beauty…” Which is good to hear from the outside because that’s exactly what I strive and work so hard for from the inside. I’m grateful for the encouragement. And thank you all...

New Circle Drawing Going up at X
I’ve just decided to up the ante: I am about to head back to X-Initiative and will hang a new 5”x7” circle drawing. I will not return to pick it up. It will either be thrown out at 2pm, someone will steal it, or someone will buy it. Technically the show closes at 11am, but I assume you will have access until 2. Good luck, and more importantly, thanks! Cheers, Man P.S. I will hang...
Not what, but how.
I am tweeting for Brooklyn Musuem’s @1stfans for the month of February. It’s going well so far! Click here to read about it.
Full Media Artist
Been thinking about alternatives to the label “Social Media Artist,” which makes me cringe and gurgle a little. Not sure yet how I feel about full media, or fullmedia, or if this is at all part of my job, but this post is a proof of concept. And it’s been growing on me, since I thought of it this morning.* Will expect your research into previous uses. I have yet to do any due...
