Brooklyn Artist Series #1

Lindsay Napolitano, Video Artist, Williamsburg,

It would not be weird to walk in on Lindsay holding a video camera decked out as an alien from Pluto or a robot from the future in her living room. Lindsay has an ability to present human emotion as something beyond social constructs and stereotypes. Her visual sequences tempt viewers to pre-judge and then take that feeling and hold the viewer hostage with their own emotions. (That's how I felt... It was powerful.)

Stay tuned for info about Lindsay's most recent work, Fight Scene Take 37, to find out where it will be installed.

Was I dreaming or did I do that?

Health insurance would be good

Moore & Bogart, J Train, Varet & Bushwick

I'll admit that I was slow to warm up to President-Elect Obama. I wasn't convinced of who he was or what he had done, but considering the options, I was willing to hear him out. After listening to him for 2 years and looking at my own situation, it's become clear Mr. Obama is going to make my life better. Seeing I don't make much and have no benefits, I can now rely on tax credits and free health care to expand my self employment. Seriously, thank Godbama.

I'm not sure how it will all work, but I'll be waiting for that check. How long do these things typically take?

Media Gone Mad

Justin Richards, Writer for New York Press, Holloween, 2008

After this election, can we as a public ever see the press as a watchdog ever again? Media bias is nothing new, but is it supply side or demand side? Is it force fed or do we crave it? Good question. You might be surprised of the answer. The Economist says there's more demand then you'd think and is actually a healthy indicator competition. See it here.
