Artists Meeting is testing out a new fundraising site called kickstarter.com. We have a project called Artists Meeting - Art Machine that we are developing to be shown in Art Fairs. It is an Art Automat. We're asking the thing community to donate small sums to build this piece. The upside is that you get valuable prizes if you contribute on the Kickstarter site.

Plazaville is a new media video art work. It is based on the classic 1965 movie Alphaville by Jean Luc Godard. It is set in 21st century New York City. The scenes from the original Alphaville are being re-enacted, interpreted and improvised upon by the artists, actors and videographers. The piece uses the internet as one means of distributing the short video clips. This is somewhat like a serialized program but is not in any order. Viewers can download new scenes as they become available on iTunes and youTube. The videos can be viewed on iPhones, computers and large screen HD televisions.

Here's a piece I did at the Democracy in America show.
Sept. 11-14th, Artists Meeting (http://artistsmeeting.org) members did a series of performance / interventions in the (POPS) plazas of Lower Manhattan. They were very successful. The initial idea was to work in the plazas as a way to take back the public spaces and engage the public. This has extra meaning after 9/11 and especially downtown which has been a sort of barricaded fortress.
