He could have been listening to himself fart while he was touching that Polaroid for all we know.
ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.....Oh WHAT?!?!? Sorry dozed off...I ESPECIALLY LOVED the way your put "send a jolt of energy through something while it's touching photographic paper" in bold face type. I would have surely missed that amazing concept, Jen. WOW-and just in time for Halloween...BOO!
BTW...I saw a ghost the other night in Lawrimore Gallery. Seriously, Jen and it was SCARY!
the ghost you saw, the dead white kitty, like an abyss he looks back and he approves of your work hibrow.

ain't no kitty but the white kitty, ain't no blessing like the lord of carnage's. SEE MY PLAY.

WOW! 'reality checking' you should really 'reality check' yourself!!! Are you serious?!?!?!? A BFA Emily Carr?!? Now that's HI BROW "think tankin"! Just because you work in Berlin doesn't mean, well, need I go on? And BTW-Jeremy Shaw's art..."of our time"???...YAWN
Go find yourself a stack of arty mags from several decades ago and see just how many of those featured artists that were "rocketing to the top of the art world" you recognize.
