Have you ever had a dream inside of a dream? You wake up from the dream and start doing daily routine.....that "daily life" was also realize it later... My yoga teacher used to say "It's not that different what you do there or here". The left brain is the one that makes the concept of "Linear Time" and "Individual Space Ownership" alive. Without those, we are probably just a fluid-like energy form, floating around in space, sharing, playing the "Life Game"... The only difference between what we call "Real" and "Dream State" is physicality. Yeah, probably what's happening in dreams is really happening in different dimension... I heard there's no more physicality after the 6th dimension Can we experience the 6th dimension at SILeNCe SPeAKs? Ummmm-, maybe possible with Turkish bath sized flotation tank. Well, since the left brain doesn't get visited as often as when we use words, we'll gain more chance to go beyond the cubical separation... You don't mind if the next person is just staring at the wall, or the wall is staring at you... Or, you realize that you are the chair holding a person's "yesterday ass"... above it, breasts are dancing between atoms and atoms smile back...

THE PURPLE JESTER continues our exploration of the concept of living art-wear. This cross-media performance art project is inspired by medieval European art. The goal is to create a futuristic vision of the art of Hieronymus Bosch, merging historic design concepts with contemporary materials, including production techniques that employ recycled textiles. The show will be presented in an interactive, multi-media live performance environment. Played by performance artist, Willard Morgan, the Purple Jester finds himself traveling through space and time on a quest for romantic fulfillment in a series of seven dream landscapes. Each dream confronts the Jester with an immersive installation in which he must negotiate phantasmagoric manifestations of human realities, including hunger, war, gossip, and sexual desire. The Purple Jester transcends conflict through the strategic implementation of humorous acts.

TERRY SMITH'S Capital Revisited

See artist TERRY SMITH'S Capital Revisited, the new mural on the facade of Ideal Glass!
Presented with The Drawing Center and The New Museum's Ideas City festival.

IDEAS CITY Street Fest, May 4th from 11am–6pm
Our booth at IDEAS CITY StreetFest on Saturday, May 4th from 11am–6pm will be an open studio where Terry Smith will work with the public to create drawings of capitals using stencils, spray paint, crayon, pencil. Hand-drawn maps will be available for self-guided tours of Capital Revisited, and Terry will conduct two scheduled tours of his work at 12PM and 3PM. Sign up will be first-come, first-serve on May 4th.
The Drawing Center has commissioned artist Terry Smith to create Capital Revisited, a series of wall and window drawings of an architectural capital, referencing Capital, a large-scale drawing Smith created at the British Museum in 1995. Presented as part of IDEAS CITY 2013, the New Museum's biennial festival created to explore the concept of "untapped capital", Capital Revisitedwill be found in sections around the Bowery neighborhood on unexpected indoor and outdoor surfaces. In this context, Smith's project will be a poignant and mischievous investigation of the use and visibility of architecture in public space.
