New York, Guggenheim Museum, May 20 —
Join me at The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on June 4 for the premiere of my new performance work Mylar Ballerinas. In this gallery performance my dancing will move air molecules toward your body. By stilling your mind you will find a new level of attention and experiential possiblities in our ADD century.
Close your eyes and let your haptic mind grow!

Wry and ironic, it occurred to me that it takes 15 minutes to view a painting. I don’t know if Cambridge is a part of London, but here Harvard is connected by subway (Underground) to the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, point being, they unveiled a new Mark Rothko and it made front page, question being, with the lure of sex and money, what are the dynamics of fame? You probably didn’t meet Rothko, he’s a little “square”. I should have just tweeted that Rothko was at Harvard. Those Andy Warhol Diaries certainly explain that famous artists go to each other movies- did you find anybody at the Guggenheim that was “chic-nouveau-gauche” without being dressed like a vampire mutant?
You nailed it Scott!
The Rabbi Lawrence Kushner talks about Moses and the Burning Bush. He asks, “Why a burning bush? Why such a cheap trick? You’re god, after all! Why not the Mormon Tabernacle Choir singing the Hallelujah Chorus on the wing of a 747 hovering over the hill? Wouldn’t that be a better way to get Moses’ attention?”
Kushner concludes that god was not trying to get Moses’ attention, rather, she was trying to see if Moses was paying attention. Kushner explains that it takes 15 minutes for a piece of wood to completely combust. So any time you see a burning bush, it’s impossible to know if it’s a divine presence, or “just a burning bush” unless you pay attention for at least 15 minutes!
