It is close to impossible to get through the Carnegie International all in one day. There is something in the corner, something on the floor, I missed a bunch. It would be great to have a Readers Digest version of the show.
“It’s always something.” I like the way the spray paint runs down almost onto the wall. It is weird seeing graffiti in a museum, like, who put that there. But I guess stuff happens. It’s always something. “Here we go again” signage, something a particular president would say. Something he would say when he would go to military bases and stuff, but being political is the furthest thing from my mind. I prefer to stay politically correct. It’s the times we live in.
It looks like some corporate lawn art. Of course to live in there, you would be kept up all night. I think that guy in the video must be trying to be Mr. Rogers. He must be trying to bring nicer children’s programming into TV, and of course he was also an ordained minister - a man of the cloth. Looks like a great holiday decoration. The lights reflect in my glasses. Must have taken a long time to build this house, and I don’t know how you assemble it without breaking it. Neon is very fragile, can’t bend it and it is also very expensive. The gas and the glass of the lights must get pretty expensive at this scale. If they break, its like money down the drain - or in this case, gas out the tube. Might as well just combine Valentine's day, Halloween and Christmas.
