Finally I got my studio ready to begin my first project which is a video series, one of the videos was shot in my studio at Gallery Aferro.  I had to make the studio mimic a gallery which meant plastering, painting the walls and the floor.  Even though it looked as if I did no or little work, it was a lot of work to make the space resemble a white box.  It was exhausting but it was nice to get my hands dirty and I told myself I'll never become an art handler.

Photos of the video shoot to come!

I am currently reading Keith Haring: Journals, it is amazing and inspiring. Keith got so much done in his short life and changed so much about the art world. One of his journal entries (I'm not sure what he is responding to), "I don't believe art is propaganda; it should be something that liberates the soul, provokes the imagination and encourages people to go further. It celebrates humanity instead of manipulating it."

I have also highly recommend David Wojnarowicz, Waterfront Journals.

What do you recommend?
