I don’t know if it will transpire this year, but I’m certainly hoping to work with James Woodfill on an installation of one of his light sculptures. The one at left crowns a condo tower–The Sulgrave–on The Plaza. James is a pioneer in this medium, and one of the best. Besides, the dude’s a hoot.
I prefer that approach to the over-serious one. Sure, we’re trying to create exceptional art, but it ain’t like we’re making world history, or improving the lives of millions of the downtrodden. It’s only art, man, and while important to the evolution of society, it’s likely wise to keep things in perspective.
