Luke Moloney, Canadian new media artist and engineer, sent me this photo he took at a Zombie Walk in Toronto, of kissing zombies. Ah, young love!

Today through Saturday there is an international conference on horror and contemporary art in Ludwigsburg, Germany, titled The Art of Horror. It is being held at the Baden-Württemburg Film Academy, and was organized by Christian Jankowski. Melissa Ragona, from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburg, will screen my work during her seminar on the Modern Gothic and resurgence of issues of abjection and horror in contemporary art.

Fright Night

falls at night

I visited Niagara Falls three nights ago while in St Catherine’s for a fabulous opening at Rodman Hall. To my surprise these stage lights were trained on the Falls at night, from the Canadian side, so tourists won’t miss a viewing oportunity. The spectacle of nature never sleeps and meanwhile alien abductions happen left right and centre. Note to self: perfect location for a zombie film.

Walking Dead, Burning Man

I spoke in my friend Alex Heilner’s Digital Media class in Baltimore earlier this week. As we rode the train back to New York, he showed me photos from Burning Man 2007, and today sent me a link to this video of a midnight zombie walk in the desert. Run for the hills.

new corpse in The Bronx

corpseflower

There is a new corpse flower mega-star about to bloom Monday night at Lehman College’s garden in The Bronx – the corpse flower was once the official flower of The Bronx! This is an extremely rare occurance and particularly if you missed the Brooklyn Botanical Garden’s corpse flower bloom last year! I made an animation about Brooklyn’s corpse flower – it’s on view right now at Long Island University Gallery, in a show curated by Aron Namenwirth (see previous post).
