Finds from this years APE

Here are artists and projects that I saw at APE that looked interesting (in no particular order). I recommend checking them out.

First “Hero” now “Hoax”

First media and government redefine the word "hero", which used to mean something very different from it's current usage. Now it looks like the word "hoax" is under attack. Last time I checked a hoax was "An act intended to deceive or trick; Something that has been established or accepted by fraudulent means". How is putting up LED displays of cartoon characters deceptive, a trick, or fraudulent? I mean is the idea that these guys were actually trying to convince people that the cartoon character, Err , had come to life and manifested himself as an LED display?

1984 arrived 17 years late.


Hope took me to see Rain, a show at the Curran Theater by a group called Cirque Eloize. It was really good. If you might be interested in seeing it, let me know and I can tell you about it.
