The Show Goes On - Spencer Tunick and EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OK

July 13th, 2012 • Paul H-O
The Medical Art Experience -Spencer Krissy Alyssa


The Spencer Tunick Installation shoot for EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OK - THE MERCER ST. MEDICAL CASE. It was produced by GalleryBeat's Kickstarter Project as a pledge level offering. It was a HAPPENING yo.

Eden has no shame.



It happened July 1st, at 4PM at the Mercer St. Medical office under the guidance of Dr. Daryl and Emily Isaacs. A blazing hot Sunday afternoon in the heart off Soho New York. The road to OK Street had enough potholes to have the producers scrambling for anxiety medication, as the 'office' was hysterical about mobs of naked anarchists running amok in the pristine new facility. This is the stuff of documentary movie making. Control. The feeling that one doesn't have it will create drama, maybe we need the drama, I know someone needs it. A good story needs it. So we have it, but it's love and guts that succeed the day.

To the Models, who not only are backers and believers of family medicine, but the family medicine, and the GalleryBeat crew that all came together with humanity, just as we came into the world; butt naked.



The Tunick Experience Crew included Kristin Bowler Tunick, Alyssa D'Anna.

The GalleryBeat Crew included producers Ken Kambara, Sono Osato, plus Ron Rocheleau, Tamara Weg, Lauren Zallo, Alec Isaacs, Savannah Spirit, and Paul H-O.

Cloud Nine @ The Front Room in Brooklyn

May 4th, 2012 • Paul H-O
Cloud Nine

Art by J. Fiber, close up, ink on paper. Cloud Nine is open until May 13

Anyway, I was at this opening (I'll have to borrow someone's snap since I didn't take any of the opening) and this show is called CLOUD NINE and it's at this Billyburg gallery, The Front Room, and it's crowded as shit, hot, the beers gone and I get introduced to this artist, Disney Nasa Borg, (?), and he's a surfer but he looks like he's from Road Warrior. So we're gabbin' about cold water when this angry little thing in glasses places herself in the middle of us, like a ref, looks up and says "excuse me but can I see the art?" and bulldozes her way to the big life size collage of a naked fat dude in a room encrusted with fast food wrappers. (by Cham Giobbi) She was a pisser that one. Why at an opening that is so damn crowded in a small room? It's not like I haven't seen it before but there is that simmering aggression of the desperate under appreciated artist that flowers in unlikely places. I appreciate her segway - so I went to the show the next day when the gallery was relatively quiet.

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 »

A Portrait of Paul (an interview by Roger Adams, 2007)

Directed and edited by former intern Roger Adams. He was the only intern still in high school I ever hired. He's the only one that ever applied. He made a very good film at 16, it's called "Slapboxing".
