opening of dear velo,
[i'll take it as a good sign]
thank you to all who came to the opening...more pics to come.
and if you missed it..there is a closing party on monday evening..stay tuned for deets.
word of warning. a lot of things you will want are not on sale, so keep your focus folks..i almost got suckered into a pair of royal blue wide leggers..but restraint [and the reality of future furniture needs] persisted and i wised up and revisited the sale section...and i got a pretty stellar black high waisted jean skirt at acne yesterday for 40% off.
sure to be a year round staple.

after a month of pondering,i did it.
i tried this on at claudine on christopher st. but they only had it in a small..and the legs were waay too short for such a wide situation.
i found it at bona drag, which is quite a lovely little shop, based out in the california land..coming soon to my closet and the long nights of summer ahead.
[so much for the shopping hiatus..oops]

this is my project for the bicycle film festival show, "DearVelo,".
the initial though which spurned me in this direction was duchamp's readymade's..but given that it's almost 100 years after 'the fountain' debuted at the armory show, i had to actually adapt my found object...there was much deliberation, as to what to do and how to do it. but after some testing and sketching. the collage and the gold leaf ideas were chucked.
this is my mossy trike. like if he'd left his in the woods since way back when..notions of recycling-referencing the ever prominent go green ideology- so popular these days. the junk of others being a discovered platform for redefinition...
and the idea of childhood->growth->foundation->grounding and the basic truth of self layering--unique and imperfect, hopefully vital and engaged. & last but not least, thoughts on the shelter/covering/clothing/surrounding elements which allow for an individual to feel comfort..often within a delicate disguise.
besides all that arthead-blah..it's a super [darling] double vintage trike amalgam of squishy green nice...and it looks better in person, i swear.
p.s.marcel duchamp would've gotten down pretty hardcore,with some ebay.
p.p.s. thank you to all who have helped and supported me through the trials and tribulations of trikeville.
come see the completed piece this thursday: firstname.lastname@example.org
