Paris Trip


I am back from Paris. The show was really amazing. I build this wild installation in the gallery.
Anyway- I have returned to NYC and for the first time ever in my life I am starting to really question if this is the right place for me to live anymore.
Paris was such a great city. The life lived out there on the sidewalks was something that I have not seen in New York in quite some time. Not as pervasive and integral to the culture here as it is there.

Anyway- I have another project to do in Paris (and then Lyon) in September.
So I am on my way back there already.
Please check out the link to the gallery to see more of the show. i am really excited.

You know David, the FIRST thing I actually thought of when I saw this installation image was the way the Petrie's living room looked like on the Dick Van Dyke Show. And that's a good thing. It evokes a very interesting period of American optimism and vigor via suburban stylings.

John-As you know, I spent many years of my childhood in New Rochelle,
not far from where the Petrie's lived.

Small world - I used to live in New Rochelle, too.

As an American hanging out in Europe (for about 5 years now, this time around), I can only recommend a stint living over here. And Paris is indeed a great city.

If I make it to Paris this summer I will happily go see your show in person. Looks fabulous.

Jul-
I am and have been for some reasn, glued to New York for almost all my life.
Not to say that I don't love it here...but living in Europe sounds great.
Paris...
I have to go back to Paris for a couple of weeks in September.
I am looking forward to that.
All the best, DK
