David + i got together at the Dynamic Media Institute’s international headquarters at MassArt to run through the list of participating artists one last time + start the final phases of planning and coordination to put the Provocative Objects show together for November 12th

i am still extremely late getting back to each artist on the list … hoping to finish all follow-ups via email tomorrow … i am really looking forward to finally announcing the list of artists + work on the main page of the website, as well as the performance and videoLoop schedule for the evening of the 12th … we’re also checking into area venues to have our cyberSurreal afterParty @ … any ideas, let us know … so far we’ve reached out to The Savant Project up on Tremont in the heart of Mission Hill … its usually a happening spot { hopefully they’ll let us know if they can accomodate our kinda crowd ;] }

more soon as the show continues to develop

today’s the last day of submissions for Provocative Objects: the extradition and we’re working away like madhatters in a latvian family trapeze act, reviewing all the work that came in through our posts to Rhizome, ProArts Connect, Big Red & Shiny and on other communities ‘out there’ on the web

an amazing assortment of work … over 40 international submissions coming in from the Boston area, New York City, San Francisco, Tennessee, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and Crete … this show is sure to be off the hook … i really look forward to seeing it all in The Doran with full house of gallerygoers enjoying food, drink and conversation

a quick note: we received so many incredible submissions that David + i reserved a slot at The Doran Gallery for a second show tentatively set for midSpring 2011, hopefully to coordinate with The Boston Cyberarts Festival … we’ll be sure to start up the call for works again toward the beginning of 2011 … watch for more details here on the Provocative Objects website

strange messages

as David + i started putting together the concepts show this summer, as more + more posts went out to solicit submissions to Provocative Objects, a bevy of strange emails + messages pertaining to the exhibit-event started to trickle in

a few random + scattered voicemails started it all off … i mean, i guess i shouldn’t have put my cellphone # in the call for work, ya know? i mean, these messages aren’t ‘threatening’ or anything, just vaguely bizzarre
