Yesterday the New York Times ran an article by Trevor Tondro about the fabulous home of Jonathan and Wendy Segal in San Diego.  The impeccable taste of its owners was demonstrated by the placement of two of my smaller pieces: “Psychos-O-matic” and “A Head for Numbers” (Works by Dan Jones were also shown but not credited).  Its always a joy for me to see where these pieces wind up, especially when its in homes as lovely as this.

I’m excited to announce that we’ll be having another open house and exhibit at my studio in Oakland.
  

The reception will be Friday May 11 from 5-9pm, and we’ll be open the following Saturday May 12 from 1-4pm
Our address is 305 Center Street, Oakland CA
 
I’ll have two new large scale pieces on display that are scheduled to be temporarily installed at Google’s offices in Mountainview at the end of May.  Since Google’s campus is not open to the public, I wanted to take this opportunity to share the work with you all first!
 
In addition to myself, my good friends and neighbors Jeremy Mayer and Jesse Small will have their studios open with work on display and we’re honored to have Scott Hove and Aimee Baldwin displaying their works with us in the gallery.
 
Please feel free to pass this invitation along to anyone you think might be interested (here is a link to our Facebook event if you’re into that kind of thing). 

This is the second time Wired Magazine has printed this photo (this time in their UK version) without bothering to credit me or my sculpture. The image is used to support an article about Andy Rubin (he’s the one wearing pants), the man behind the Android operating system. Is it too much to ask that Art be considered as intellectual property, or at least valued in some way like every other business? I mean, come on, they’re printing a picture of a giant, anatomically correct, gun toting robot. Why bother even staging such a photo if it’s image isn’t compelling enough to warrant some kind of interest from their readers? Why not do the honorable thing and at least mention the guy who spent countless hours and dollars creating the thing? How hard is it to print a tiny little image credit?
O.K. done ranting now.
