The Bunt Machine

On June 27th, The Bunt Machine opens at The Invisible Dog Art Center in Brooklyn.

It’s a one man performance by my friend, office building mate and artist in residence, Mac Premo. The play is about that familiar intersection between death, learning to listen, M*A*S*H, and baseball. Life, you know!?

The Bunt Machine is directed by Donal Brophy (a divine derelict from Dublin), with sound design by Jad Abumrad (of Radiolab notoriety).

This first run is a short one with limited seating— just six nights, from June 27th through July 2nd. And if you come on June 28th, you’ll bump into me! Excited to see Mac perform!

Here’s a video piece by Mac that I love. And here’s his CreativeMornings talk.

Jon Burgerman

Watch Jon Burgerman’s talk and agree with me that he is a super talented illustrator with a lovely sense of humor. Lucky me, I get to bump into him in the hallways, as both of our workspaces are part of The Invisible Dog in Brooklyn. Also, his Tattly designs are my kids’ favorites!

Museum of Broken Relationships

When Croatian artists Olinka Vistina and Drazen Grubisic separated, their reluctance to part with the sentimental reminders of their fizzled love inspired them to open the Museum of Broken Relationships, so that the items could remain together.

Muller Van Severen Trivets

I have never liked coasters trivets, until I saw these by Muller Van Severen. These coasters are like sculptures that adapt to a functional role and change in configuration and appearance with use. YES!
