great art, very boring hotel environment though. it looks like no one has ever lived there.

i found one of these at the ann arbor treasure mart about 2 months ago. it is a eames shell, wrapped in black vinyl. i got mine for 40 dollars. very little documentation about this one. i dont know if they are rare or not, but its a great piece. its perfect for a macbook and a cup of coffee in the morning!

im sure you will hear from eames demetrios, if not already. he wrote an editorial to dwell once about mentioning knock offs as a solution... im ambivalent myself, as knock offs can be just as important as the real thing, ie keener/jackobsen 7 chair. it has everything to do with what people can afford. i remember reading something about the ray eames white fiberglass chaise and how it was created for an easily reproducible/inexpensive furniture competition. vitra makes it for 9000 dollars. a knockoff is 900. which one seems more like the original ethos of the piece?

have you ever been up to goodhart? its right up the lake from harbor springs. there are many nice minimalist cabins along that route. i spent many times in one in particular that was owned by my fathers late friend. he had a nice wassilly chair in front of a large picture window overlooking lake michigan with all of his books close by. it was designed by his father, who was an architect in detroit. it is easily one of the best places in michigan, in my opinion.

i find myself sitting in my eames lounge with a nice pillow behind my head, cup of coffee in hand, feet up on my low table, listing to records... it seems to be a winter thing!

to quote rauchenberg....
"this is a portrait, because i say so."

you all make art. everyday. what can make it art ( in my mind) is if you think of it as so. what jooly said was great! you need no background to make something inspiring, thought provoking to you or others. people shouldnt be discouraging the act of creation. i have a feeling those thoughts are coming from those that would rather a post done about them (who wouldnt) than what in their minds is "counterfeit art".

my last thought....
a few months back i was very inspired by the recent art of stanley donwood. i wanted to try to emulate some of the textures he came to through wax and ink. i tried it and came up with my own thing. i was so happy with it i posted it on my blog and a few people bought a few copies. if it hadnt been for mr donwood inspiring me enough to try to emulate him, i would of been out a new technique and a few hundred dollars... check it out here if you want....

i consider this real art. its saying something to someone obviously. that message may be "im copying something i really like" or "im too cheap to go after a real one." both are valid messages though. would i rather people go after my art( of course (hint, hint)... but people dont want that. which is a message as well. the thing that i find fascinating here is that people are creating instead of buying. which is good and creative for the "buyer" and bad for the "24/7 artist". oh well. art is fascinating, lovely, and frustrating....
