The show to see, hear and marvel. On exhibition until October 7, 2012. "Colliding Complexities" @ storefrontbushwick. Artist Disney Nasa Borg =[dnasab] embodies this wild claim, but he throws it down and scores big. His work embodies the recognition factor blown to bits. It's a group show that Disney curated, documented, honed messages heated up in his video trailer, and literally hung the show (more than ably assisted by partner Desiree Konian). All the work in the show is strong and supports the idea that we've moved into the digital era century and artists of all persuasions have been at the forefront of the medium that changed everything. It's not new as much as it is boldly going into space, inside and out, literally and figuratively.

The collision is that we have a generation of artists now that didn't know what life was like before Apple, MS, or Gameboy. DNasaB mixes the art generations with a smooth physicality that transitions from the front of the gallery to the back. The attraction of painting, sculpture, and photography explodes in the farthest darkest cranny of the gallery. It's the glittering nightmare of the apocalyptic, a Blade Runner passion to push relentlessly in love and hate and madness until it's a smoldering wreck, flickering LED's sizzle cooly in the darkness. It's alive. Don't piss it off, but definitely try to see it in this formula, in the real. But what's real? What's time and distance between friends? Link up and see all the work and the artists speaking bumping colliding informing at times chaotically.

The Gallerybeast Meets Streetfightin' Jesse Edwards

Translation dubbed into English from the Italian and scraped up by this network. (bullshit) Let's just say I had to tune the edit so lips and words almost sync up.

I go to see this show because veteran artist and facebook phenom, Judy Rifka, insisted I meet her there, a gallery I never noticed was there. I'd been on that street to see the skaters and bmxers in the railed platform park under the Manhattan Bridge. In fact, I love the location. There aren't other galleries around and the hood reminds me of Flight of the Concords, which in fact, was filmed close by. Jesse Edwards is a funny, experienced street tagger artist with what I would assume is shred cred. That appeared through one comment on YTube and some asking around.

The Mercer Street Medical Case (v1 part 1) 3:40

November 7th, 2011 • Paul H-O

Popular Doctor for New York's Creative Community Gets Booted by Greedy Landlord

My version of Dr. House is real. New documentary at square two is in reality in pre-production, a drama with 27 hours of real-time video about Dr. Daryl Isaacs, the uniquely brilliant and prolific internist, gives me his story of the struggle with the American medical establishment fix - all specialists and no GP's. He demonstrates in check form the insanity of "for profit health insurance' companies", Isaacs' massive patient load, and the surprising facts behind his inclusion in the hit film - SUPERSIZE ME, by then documentary director, Morgan Spurlock.


The Mercer Street Medical Case begins as a New York real estate nightmare, because Daryl Isaacs loses the lease on his medical practice and must move by the end of May. It was April and I began shooting the  more »

Flesh of the Machine > Artist Sono Osato

October 20th, 2011 • Paul H-O
Uploaded by filmlikefilms on Oct 14, 2011 Sono Osato, artist. This is a short studio visit and taping I did during the 2011 Dumbo Festival in late September. It's fascinating to see the array of old manual typewriters and calculators that are gutted to create buoyant metal core mixed media assemblage, along with new paintings that incorporate some metal elements but conveys her deep involvement with the roots of visual language in a passionate freeform style that I would describe as "beautifully beyond". It's the here and now but the history of how visual language can seem like a slow volcanic eruption. Sono has shown her work extensively on the West Coast and is represented by The Brian Gross Gallery in San Francisco.  more »
