Mark Porter recently had an installation of his newest kinetic sculptures at The Mission Gallery on Chicago Ave. As I walked down the basement steps of the gallery, a motion sensor woke the machines up and they immediately started shaking, rattling and spitting up reddish hues of foamy stuff all over the place. Go to Mark’s website to find out when you can see some of these things in person.

 



THE FALL OF 2012, THE RISE OF THE POISONER

Way back in December of 2012, folks believed that the End Days were upon us. Chris Hefner painted this badass end of the world snow globe backdrop and we set it up in a corner of The Kimball Arts Center as part of a benefit to fund the final touches of Chris’ film, The Poisoner. The end of the wold jitters seemed to make everyone real drunk and sloppy and our beautiful backdrop eventually came tumbling down. Fortunately, the real globe is still hanging and The Poisoner will be upon us shortly.  The official trailer was released today.  See it here!
