Return of The Green Monster Hand

Green Monster Hand

Hey, remember when I found This on 10th Avenue in the Chelsea Gallery District? As far as reader comments go, that was one of my most popular Street Art posts ever, which is saying something, considering it had virtually no accompany text.

The Green Monster Hand, which has been seen around town by me just a few times, is still a bit of a mystery. Its authoring artist is unknown, and it is far from ubiquitous, unlike the Pink Baby Faces, which have been spotted all over the country at this point. I was out in Chelsea this past Saturday (and what lovely fall day it was) and spotted the Green Monster Hand, now holding an old school cell phone (an upgrade from the now-antiquated desk phone handset we saw last time), which is emblazoned with the text “You Go Girl.” Inspiring.

In Art Fare – Photographer Andy Freeberg’s second solo exhibition at the gallery – Freeberg continues his longstanding investigation of the junctions where art and people intersect. Roaming through international art fairs with his camera, Freeberg’s gaze pauses on the oddity of human behavior and frames the small moments in life as dramatic events.

Quick and skillful with his lens, Freeberg captures what is most often overlooked; gallery workers setting up booths, dealers on their phones ignoring their colleagues or interacting with artists and collectors, and the sheer exhaustion of working at contemporary art fairs.

In a conversation with art historian W. M. Hunt, Freeberg says that he “found the lighting, the costumes, and set design excellent for photographing these living dioramas where the art world plays itself.” It is definitely fun to realize that these photos were not staged in any way.

Art Fare gracefully offers an ironic look at the way in which the art world practitioners perform their assigned roles. It is a witty and subversive body of work that contemplates on the performance aspect of the art market. Freeberg’s ability to recognize moments and construct them as thoughtful compositions presents both his aesthetic and psychological sensibilities.

Art Fare by Andy Freeberg will be on Exhibit Through August 8th, 2014 at Andrea Meislin Gallery, Located at 534 West 24th Street, in the Chelsea Gallery District.

Teenager Finds Baby Bat In Her Bra

Fly!

This is a fun story. Apparently, a young hotel worker in England was “surprised” to discover that a baby bat had been hiding in her bra for several hours before its movements (which were originally mistaken for the vibrating of her cell phone) prompted closer inspection. I’m just thinking that she must have been wearing a pretty big bra for her to not notice that a fucking bat was hiding in there! I mean, I’m hauling around an impressive rack myself, and I think I’d notice if there was a bat in my bra. Geez.

Affordable Hands-Free Cell Phone Device Now Available!

HandsFree!

“One Size Fits All!”

 

In some states you are no longer able to use a cell phone while driving unless you have a “hands free” adapter. I went to Circuit City and they wanted $50 for a headset with a boom microphone for my cell phone. Having a friend in the cell phone business, I talked with him and was able to come up with an alternative, working through Office Depot. These kits are compatible with any mobile phone and one size fits all. I paid $0.08 each because he bought in quantity. I tried them out on Erickson, Motorola, Nokia and Verizon phones and they worked perfectly. Take a look and let me know if you want one, and forward this to anyone you know who may want one!
