On our trip to Europe, we found ourselves at the airport each day; flying from show to show. It brought to mind Gary Winogrand's Departures and Arrivals. Some of my favorite photos from one of the best photographer's.
So, How do we kill time at the airport?
Napping... nature's oldest way of killing time.
Find the arcade.

Make new friends.

Super Prime is an organization that uses unsold condos in New York as temporary spaces for young artists to show their work. I've been thinking a lot about how many of my favorite NY artists emerged during the bleak days of the early 1970s. We often romanticize the city's bankruptcy and horrors as the force behind such artists, behind punk and performance art and conceptual art, but really so little of it would've happened or been seen or documented if it weren't for organizations like Creative Time and the Kitchen and 112 Workshop who facilitated these projects and actions. Max Neuhaus' Round, which I think about all the time, never could've happened without Creative Time's tireless work to transform the abandoned Customs House Building into a space for art. The reality of life is that there's no way he could've done all the work on the piece itself and on the mechanics and politics of useing the space.

In these similarly bleak times, it's nice to see how all of these organizations are still working towards such projects, but in a way it's even more inspiring to see young people working towards the same ends, using their own energy and resources to create similar opportunities. We're really honored to play this benefit for Super Prime, and minimally participate in this project.

Wednesday November 18
Glasslands, Brooklyn

Chris and Claire of Upset The Rhythm are like London's George and Weezy Jefferson.
They've moved on up to the east side to a dee-lux apartment...
...and finally got a piece of the pie!

You probably wouldn't want to encourage this in a country like England...


Robin Hood!
Nottingham Castle

Patrick Bateman as John Lennon

This is Peter of Skinny Wolves house. It used to be his grandmother's and now he and his brother live in it. It might as well be a museum. Lovely...

America may be losing it's footing as a super-power but, it remains a cultural juggernaut! USA!... USA!... USA!...

Mr. Josh Taylor and Foot Village
It was Peter's 29th birthday in Manchester and Perry and Latitia surprised him with a cake!

This was one of the first things we saw when we got to Berlin. A giant tower with a WW II German soldiers helmet on top. Quite suspicious...

Rock N' Roll hostel?!

Danish craftsmanSHIP. I bet this guy built this boat himself. At least he looked like he did...
