ExcessNYC (Ricardo and I!) will participate in this panel on March 30th. Looking forward, the panelists look great.
With Food in Mind is thrilled to participate in the 2013 Just Food Conference. In our conference session, artists will offer practical advice on using food as medium or material when working to foster social change.
Attendees will hear from Atom Cianfarani, sustainable designer and co-author of A Roof Grows in Brooklyn: The Do-It-Yourself Green Roof Workbook; Jason Gaspar, multimedia artist and artist-in-residence at Wyckoff Farmhouse Museum; Lisa Gross, artist and chairman/founder of The Boston Tree Party; Tattfoo Tan, artist; and Brooke Singer & Ricardo Miranda Zuniga, collaborating artists on ExcessNYC. All of these artists are responding to the challenges and concerns of feeding populations sustainably by creating local, community-oriented, and aesthetically conscious models.
Making Art with Food in Mind will take place on Saturday, March 30 from 10:30am to 11:45am at the Food & Finance High School in New York City. Purchase tickets here.
There is an interesting essay, The Migration of Social Exchange, recently posted on Hyperallergic by James Holland. He mentions my Databody piece from spring 2001 (yes, prior to 9/11). Nice that it is still relevant after over a decade. This is a thoughtful piece that ruminates on the changing landscape of what it means to be social.
Ricardo and I gave a short presentation on ExcessNYC at this cool “conceptual” farmers market at the Hall of Science organized by Liz Slagus last weekend.
I am giving a talk tonight with artist and sometime collaborator, Stefani Bardin, at NYU’s ITP. See the link for details. Should be fun & lively! The event is titled : INPUT / OUTPUT: POLLUTION / SOLUTION: BODIES / SITES. Thanks to Marina Zurkow for organizing.
I have two photographs in Peekskill Project V at the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art in Peekskill, NY. There is a lot of great work from artists like Brandon Ballengée, Diana Cooper, Jeffrey Gibson and Ellen Harvey.
The ExcessNYC project is in full swing. Our website is up and running. We just had a workshop at 3rd Ward last weekend. Next up: we build out our compost site at a garden in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.
We have a few events coming up this fall. Will post here as soon as they are confirmed. You can join our Facebook fan page to stay in touch.
I am giving an artist talk tonight at the Clay Center for Art and Sciences in West Virginia. Pretty cool place in Charleston, WV. Well it’s 90 degrees but you know what I mean.

I talked briefly with Doug Clifford of WSKY in Gainesville, FL, in advance of my talk this Friday at The Thomas Center.
