After the first month, we are 31% funded on the 13-foot-high Gift Horse for the 01SJ Biennial. A good initial run, but its starting to feel a little tight, so please consider a Kickstarter donation to the Gift Horse project.


We have been busy working on the internal structure and final models in Sketchup. The skeleton proved to be an advanced wood project since the exterior printed digital panels (see model above) will be exactly fitted to make it look like giant-sized 3D model of a horse.


While this video only takes three and a half minutes, the actual sign took several days to make. Victoria Estok and Kyle Hittmeier helped along the way – Kyle can be seen painting, Victoria is more elusive. The soundtrack is from some old friends from California, specifically: The Steady Ups and Doctor Echo’s Dub Disaster album, which is one of my favorites. Worth every penny and more.


Do It sign by Steve Lambert

Part sculpture, part productivity tool. Letters are frosted acrylic which luminesce from the two 11 watt bulbs inside. Letters also stand 1/8th inch out from the sign surface.

Skulptur Projekte Münster only happens every 10 years. This, its fourth iteration (following 1977, 1987 and 1997), invites artists from all over the world--many of whom are returning to the city and the event--to create new site-specific works. Thus Michael Asher brings back his trailer and parks in sites he first sussed out in 1977, continuing to explore the conflicts between rigid form and mobile space, and to document the dramatic transformation of the urban environment over four decades. Guy Ben-Ner equips bicycles with screens and places them around the city; by pedaling, participants control the speed and direction of a film of the artist doing the same. Guillaume Bijl mocks up an archaeological site 25 feet square and 18 feet deep, whose steep walls imitate layers of soil. Visitors climb a grassy hill to peer into the pit from a balustrade; in the pit, a 14-foot, shingle-roofed spire topped by a weathercock preens.

Project Created: 
October 2002

Torsten Zenas Burns and Darrin Martin began their collaborations in the video and sculpture programs at the School of Art and Design at Alfred University, where they both received their BFAs, 1990 and 1992 respectively. Burns was born in 1968 and received his MFA in video and performance from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1993. Martin was born in 1969 and received an MFA in media and sculpture from The University of California, San Diego in 2000. Together, they have based their single channel videotapes, curations and current performance works on their research into diverse Séance-fictions including reimagined educational practices, cryptozoological musicals, and trans-human stories. They have jointly participated in residencies at Eyebeam,and The Experimental Television Center in New York State. In 2003, Electronic Arts Intermix commissioned their net art project, “Lesson Stalls:Learning Net” which can be found at
