  • Art 21 Trio: A slew of recent things that caught my eye on Art 21 lately. First, they noted that Jenny Holzer is using twitter. I maintain that Holzer is perhaps the only user who’s tweets are actually worth caring about. I love that the only person she’s following is an impostor Guy Debrod, notable French Marxist. The site was practically designed for her w. Secondly, they note an “interview” with Barry McGee on VBS.TV. And there is an update on Mel Chin’s Fundred Dollar Bill Project. Congrats on all the awards, too.
  • Sponsor a Lifestraw: Treehugger points out you can chip in to put a family version of the Lifestraw in more homes that need them. Lifestraw is a really slick, inexpensive (at least for rich Westerners) device that filters almost any water into drinkable. The family version turns it into a drinking source suitable for a home. The Lifestraw is one of many objects and tools designed for improving the quality of life in impoverished parts of the world and part of the exhibition Design for the other 90%, coming to the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden this summer. I don’t think the Family version is part of the show, so it is interesting to note it’s development.

The headline photo is awfully reminiscent of some of Trisha Brown’s Man Walking Down the Side of a Building, which will be presented again at the Walker this summer. (Photo by fotoburra.)
