Me on a conference panel

I forgot they recorded this

I was on a panel at UC Berkeley as part of the University of California Institute for Research in the Arts.. with some SUPER COOL artists like the Graffitti Research Lab folks, Sal Randolph (who did a cc music project that generated a lot of music), and lots of other interesting folks, about DIY=> DIT (Do It Yourself into Do It Together) in art..

anyway it's pretty cool and they are all super interesting.

My favorite moment is when some curators appeal to all of us (who do conceptual, collaborative, social kinds of art) about the "problem" of preserving the art and it's the moment that I really felt quite aligned with everyone else on the panel (who otherwise I felt a bit separate from since they are all "real artists" and not entertainers).. anyway we all respond with a kind of unanimous indifference or even mild hostility.

that occurs about 3/4 or 4/5 along the video (no minute counters: boo!) - a guy asks how we would like to see our work preserved. I remember thinking the response from all of us was quite funny.
