Drew some armor with my KCAI buddy Zoe Van Djik, and then I ran some errands. I got called a chink while crossing the street near Washington Square Park, and then 30 minutes later I got interviewed by a guy from WNYC about what I thought about how Ebola was being covered in the media. 

venetians:

basically by the time I got to venice, i was incredibly tired of museums and basically anything academic……….so I just wandered around instead, and venice is a wonderful place to do just that

Barry X Ball, ‘Purity’, 2008-2011

"Purity, a response to Corradini, is made of semi-translucent stones not traditionally used for sculpture that transcend the limitations of marble to blur the lines between stone, flesh, and cloth. The translucency of the materials creates the illusion of the sculptures emanating light, simultaneously conveying the warmth of human flesh and the diaphanous qualities of a veil. With sumptuous finishes that highlight the sensuality of exposed flesh, Purity is inevitably imbued with eroticism despite its virtuous title.”
