This article about art dealers who collect design (is there anyone who doesn’t, anymore?) may leave you with a case of the too-coolies. Check out the article at ArtInfo HERE.

VoCA thinks it’s time for a little (non-ironic) bad taste.

Speaking of design, VoCA’s favorite design blog, Designboom (see blogroll at right) has an interview with the American video/installation artist Tony Oursler, one of the first artists whose work really blew us away.

It was around 1995 and we were wandering through a museum in Germany when we turned into a room, and there it was….though we can’t quite recall if it was the man’s face with suit on a hanger, or the girl’s head under the mattress..but the figure was muttering incomprehensibly, and it seemed so surreal and so real at the same time…

Oursler now works on a much larger scale, projecting into trees and onto buildings, as he did for Artangel’s project The Influence Machine, in 2000 in London and New York. Click HERE for that website.
