2007 Figure out a way to make the new arrivals famous for 15 minutes. Perhaps ongoing guest spots on a perpetual reality NYC/TV show with lots of sink or swim competitions and flash-in-the-pan stuff. Fleeting fame really is the new normality. 2000 being [an] architectur[al] Duchamp . . . living in a large 3D painting, in a hyper painting, being in a hyperzone, within an environment of many unknown factors . . . "the working title museum" . . . how people will buy their art and architecture in the future . . . Rita Novel Tea [room] - a book of cult fiction . . . the self evident need for architecture publishing to manifest and/or embrace a paradigm shift from magazines and journals to digital publishing.


2002 I wanted to created something that would manifest endurance and determination, so I lightly scored three large museum boards with pencil lines spaced 3/16" apart which resulted with 317 40" long demarcated spaces running down the length of each board. From here the mission was to simply fill each line of space from edge to edge with hand-written text using a Pelican Graphos pen with nib A.1. I had to lay on the board(s) on the floor of my living room in order to write, and the text records whatever came into my mind at the exact time that I was working/writing on the project. It did not take long for this 'self portrait' to also often act as a confessional. 2009 Does that perhaps mean that architects have an aversion to being cognitively challenged by virtual worlds?

the expeditious expedition
had flags and colors and birds
and waves of hands
and waves of seas
they embarked
with the goal to please

All reality is relative to the size of its container
all irreality is relative to the holes in the container

we are all mirrors that have to see ourselves regardless
[architectural] Pliancy, apt.
[using] Formalism [as criticism], inapt.
[architectural] Formalism is not altogether inept, however.
