Setting up was flawless and everything went as planned. The music was checked, the beer arrived and we were ready to go. We had a great turnout and I think the guests thoroughly enjoyed the interactive and playful pieces that CHER had to offer.
Setting up included adjusting lights and putting out art merchandise. (I made that CHER sign :)
The Bands included The Heavy Sweater Band, M.T. Bearington (solo), and Cymbals Eat Guitars. There is M.T. Bearington who is also a Uarts alumni and Veronica's boyfriend. They are making a loving eye connection.
Oh and here is Laruren McCarty's video that I helped out with. Thats me there on the screen. And true to her style the television and DVD player are from thrift stores. This piece almost didn't make it to the final show because there was a broken Neil Diamond CD stuck in the DVD player.
This cake is a copyrighted sculpture by Seth Gutierrez. The idea was that as people eat it they too become copyrighted. I explained this concept to one man, who then became worried that he wouldn't be able to take pictures of people because they were copyrighted.
I think the artist had wanted it to look like a near exact copy of the cake, but it was pretty much impossible because the Polaroid would automatically zoom out. I still think it looks great though.
