Gift Horse to invade artMRKT

Scott Kildall’s and Victoria Scott’s Gift Horse, a 13-foot high sculpture depicting the mythological Trojan Horse, will greet visitors to artMRKT, May 19- 22. The horse is clad with digitally-printed wood textures to resemble a 3D model in real space. Using the metaphor of the Trojan Horse as computer malware, the artists have filled its belly with hundreds of paper sculptures of viruses. These were built in public workshops and range from real viruses such as Smallpox and Rabies to famous computer viruses like ILOVEYOU and Elk Cloner to imaginary viruses including Andromeda Strain and Cooties. In a celebration of the viral nature of art and ideas, they will unleashed the viruses onto the floor of the exhibition hall.

Exhibition Dates: May 19th-22nd
Location: Concourse Exhibition Center, 635 8th St (btw Brannan and Townsend), San Francisco

The answer to the bag question…

In Whale, 2011 Chris Jordan uses single-use plastic shopping bags (50,000 of them) to represent the number of pieces of plastic floating every square mile of ocean. His amazing image based on a photograph of a whale by Byrant Austin was the perfect backdrop for our bag give-away at Electric Works on Saturday. Folks were thrilled with the gift of the bag and promised that they will now answer “fabric” when asked “Paper or Plastic?” Hurrah!!! for the Green Bag Lady.
