In May, I did some records for APW‘s ‘Arts On Record 2′ show.

I finished four in time for the show. They hung them, destroyed the backs of them with glue, and mailed them back with another piece which they also damaged. This in itself was a feat, as I contacted them three or four times over the course of 8 months and they never responded to my inquiries until I threatened them with legal action. In retaliation, they busted my art. Many people have had similar experience to my own.

Anyhow, the four that I did are right here. I went with a weird ‘supervillain and funky font’ theme.

The fifth was never completed.

When I come across old cookbooks, it makes me very grateful that I live in an era where our desperation for flavor and variety can be quelled by harsh chemicals instead of encasing things in gelatin. Has there every been a singular instance where a food was made better by suspending it in a translucent substance? Staplers notwithstanding, though technically, they are not food.

Anthropological studies, conducted informally and by exclusively looking at 1960s cookbooks, reveals that there is not a single food in the universe that cannot be assaulted – and quite frankly,  roughly violated – by the addition of boiled eggs, black olives and salty gelatin. Anyone who can’t understand the seductive wiggle of a perfectly cylindrical slab of jellied meat paired with the brimstone and sewage aroma of boiled eggs…. well, let’s just say that they haven’t lived.
