Final Push to Korea
Pocheon Art Hall and Performance Space
THE PROBLEM OF PROCRASTINATION
I'm busy preparing sketches, stage/lighting/sound cues for my new tableaus to be performed in Korea while awaiting the status of my prints from the photography studio in HCMC that will be exhibited elsewhere at PAAF. My airline tickets should be arriving today. And my new business cards tomorrow. I leave the following day.
The portfolio list exhibiting and performing artists can now be viewed online on the PAAF2005 site
I was suprised to see some familiar names on the list such as Araki Nobuyoshi(Japan) but I'm really thrilled about some of the contemporary Chinese artists. Wang Qingsong, in particular. His photograph was selected for the catalog cover the exhibition on contemporary chinese art I just saw at the Mori Museum last month in Tokyo. I want to speak to him about a few ideas.
THE TROUBLE WITH MEDIA ARTS
I still don't have a laptop but after scouring the city, I believe I've found one. It's not the beauty that the Dell Inspiron 700m is, but for the price, I'll go with a used 300m (Pentium M 1.2, 1GB RAM, 12.1 screen, 60GB HDD, Firewire/USB2/SD Card reader, and with a docking station that has a DVD Burner). Alone the laptop is extremely light, around 3lbs without dock, about 5.5 with the dock. I would have sucked it up and spent the extra $500 for the 700m, which is new, rather than a 2-year old laptop, but my finances are crunched and I need to make due with what I can afford now. The laptop with the docking station, extra high capacity batter, and larger 60GB hard drive will be $950, which I can live with (I can also avoid the 5% VAT charge).
I believe that there's an art to making art. I just haven't hit the rhythm yet. I am going to miss something, somewhere along the way. I am sure of it.
