    creative time failed this time around.

    the space was too big, not enough artists to fill it. exhibitions scattered all over the place. the speakers were too short. i just got home after making a second trip to the armory to hear steve kurtz speak. steve kurtz spoke for 10 min, a rather informative 10 min, but still…. afterwards the moderator ran up and said that there are speakers every hour, come back in (checks his watch) 50 min.

    then you have the volunteers who know absolutely nothing. on top of that creative time is trying to be bigger than they really are, trying to attract mainstream media, and offering them free reign, yet on the other hand don’t want to deal with small photographers like you and me. wtf? these ppl are worse than the establishment they are trying to challenge with this exhibit.

    democracy is all about participation, engaging in dialog, challenge. creative time’s exhibit on democracy is very passive, docile.

    This is strange ld. My experience was very different. They let me shoot wherever I wanted, and introduced me to one of the artists.

    I loved being able to, just about, crawl all over the place. I went in the early afternoon, wanting to get photos and video while the sun was shining.

    It is spread out, but so what. I think they were hoping for more audience participation with the soapbox and karaoke areas, and didn’t have speakers or band blaring out in competition. Yes some of the art was a little weak, but there were other amazing things to do and see, all over.

    Excellent video. I really appreciate that people are doing these things…gives me faith in some of my fellow Americans. And the Karaoke guy rocked…At first it struck me as funny, but as the footage rolled and you showed shots of some of the artwork it really moved me. Rock and roll.

    And I think you’ll appreciate. In the video the veteran says it all – and in the sweetest of voices –

    i was thinking just the other day about the right’s use of the derogatory phrase "brie and chablis" crowd. i mean, could that be any more dated? is there anyone in america today who thinks that brie is a fancy gourmet cheese? lol

    now parmagiano, i could live in a house made out of that!
