I’m heading to LA next week to visit The Tree in the middle of Rose Bowl parking lot K and to celebrate one of its 200 Tree Babies that is growing so beautifully and tall at USC.
The Tree and its Tree Babies began teaching me about love, devotion, and activism quite a long time ago, and they continue to do so today.
They also continue to teach me about family, community, and collectivism. I’m deeply grateful to everyone who has offered hugs, water, and other forms of nourishment to the Tree and its Tree Babies.
We are gathering on April 27 in LA for a discussion about what we can do for our environment and for each other, both individually and collectively. We will screen my film Sick-Amour, celebrate the USC Tree Baby, and offer it both water and affection.
It would be wonderful if you could join us.

Three videos from the Sick-Amour installation will be on display in the show, “Dirty Talk: Art. Environment. Action” at USC. There will be a current photo of the USC tree baby — which is now quite big! — and a map of its location on campus.
The show is going to be wonderful, and I hope to see you at the opening tomorrow night!
It was an absolute joy to have this conversation with Pedro de Llano. We have lots in common, and we cover a lot of ground in this story. Many thanks to Pedro for engaging in such a stimulating dialogue with me. And many thanks to Gloria Sutton, Alyssa Pavley, and everyone else at Art Journal Open for all of your support and for all of your editorial work. I really appreciate it!
As part of the show “Our Mind Into A Brezel” at the Kunstverein Neuhausen, a story and photo from The Sharing Project (“Shared Resources And Expectations”) is appearing in the publication, THE EXECONOMIST, which appears at first glance to be a normal financial newspaper. The contents, though, challenge those expectations in all kinds of ways. Many thanks to the curators, Susanne Jakob, Kai Bauer, and Hans Winkler for organizing this wonderful show and publication!
Thank you so much William Kherbek for your wonderful article in Berlin Art Link about Seven Attempts To Make A Ritual and the other super interesting works in the fantastic show (up through the end of July) that Stephan Adamski curated at his gallery in Berlin.
The movie version of Pumping is also available now on Amazon Prime and Amazon Instant Video. Many thanks to Suzanne Harle and Green Planet Films for making that happen!
