I was totally kidding about the Winka part. The resemblance is striking, isn't it?

Vito Acconci is lecturing tonigth, at 7pm, at The Accompanied Library, The national Arts Club, 15 Gramercy Park South, 6th Floor. RSVP (like you were invited, whatevah) [email protected] because seating is limited. He'll be lecturing on current projects, including the building facade above.

Olafur Eliasson Edits L.A.

Olafur takes over a residence and edits out most of LA from a house made to view LA. I've had the honor of working with Olafur, and hearing him present his projects to potential clients. In addition to the idea of inverting the expansiveness of the Southern California landscape by creating light-stages for his sculptures, I think there's a little joke in there about leaving enough of LA to make the view enjoyable.
