My Rhizome artist profile -- featuring a glitch image at the top -- appeared side by side with a glitchy ad by Liz Sales for ICP's MFA program! (the program I recently graduated from)

I installed the top two images below as desktop images on all the public-use terminals at ICP, switching back and forth between mac and windows for every other machine. The public-use machines are all macs, so the fact that half look like they're running Windows was confusing enough (clicking the Start menu will of course do nothing), but then the open window containing the EULA (written in Esperanto) in the center of the screen can't be closed, since it's also part of the background image.
It is a simple tactic, but by the time I left this morning, several students were confused and thought the machines were broken, although they seemed to ignore it once they figured out they could still get into Safari. Hopefully the school won't "fix" my piece before the opening tomorrow night.
The same machines are running screensavers with variations on the old FBI warnings, mostly translated to Esperanto or using Wingdings, and with ICP's logo as the symbol of authority. Examples here and here. Each is part of my own personal Intellectual Property Rights Agreement I've instated across ICP's computers.
More info on our group show opening can be found here.

Received this awesome postcard from Peter Snadik, as part of on-going postcard project of his. The text references On Kawara's "I Am Still Alive".
Peter and I share studio space at ICP; the image is a photo of me painting a Dither Study on our wall; Eliza is a reference to my program Drunk Eliza.

As part of the upcoming ICP-Bard MFA Thesis Group Show, I'm instituting my own Intellectual Property Rights agreement on the public use machines, mandatory for all who use them. To emphasize the international aspect of the International Center of Photography, it is shared in the non-geographic language of Esperanto:
The group show will take place next Friday (March 30th), from 6 to 9, at ICP (school), 1114 6th Ave (at 43rd).

Just an update to say that tomorrow's set of talks / performances known as SlideFest will be free -- so you can hold on to the five bucks to buy me a beer afterwards!
