Trip: Santa Monica and LA

I went on a short trip (There was a lot of driving though...damn those LA freeways) to Highways in Santa Monica for the Archipelago performance. I was the wardrobe assistant and stage hand and managed to do all of that and have a great time working with Adam, Denise, and Ed Cha (crazy technical director and lighting designer extraordinaire) for three days.

Here is a short video sample of the performance on Vimeo.

Not much time for fun (no surfing or beach trips for me!), but I managed to check out Bergamont Station in Santa Monica... an amazing complex of top-notch galleries and the Santa Monica Museum of Art. The art was very tasty, especially the show of Beatrice Wood's drawings and ceramic vessels and Georgi Tushev's astonishing paintings.
Beatrice's show is part of Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A., 1946–1980.

The hippest installation of children's art ever! "The Walls Have Eyes".
About the installation

The art installation with the red and yellow stripes is by Peter Shire and Echo Park Pottery. Each white disc is a pottery eye drawn in sgraffito technique with black slip; each piece was done by a child. It consisted of two walls covering in these wonderful drawings of eyes.
Until the next project!
