I just went to the best show I’ve seen in a long time, truly mind-blowingly great. It’s called Otherworldly: Optical Delusions and Small Realities and it closes on September 18. Do not miss it. I mean it. Just about every piece sucked me in, I could have spent an hour with each one and I rarely feel like that. But every piece created a world I wanted to spend time in. Or live in. Or own. I made a really short movie of one of the pieces, a zoetrope called Garden of Unearthly Delights by artist Mat Collishaw. When you’re there you don’t see the interruptions you see here in the movie (it’s annoying in the movie, I admit, but again, this doesn’t happen when you’re there).
On my way to the show, walking up Broadway, I passed by truck after truck, each filled with film gear for a tv show. Then out of the blue someone from the show contacted me today. She wanted to check what cold case files look like, to make sure the props are correct.

That’s a cool-looking little video. I should maybe go see this.
Was the piece itself a projection or three-dimensional?
Three-dimensional, you feel like you’re hallucinating when you watch it.
