The Printers' Ball

I was invited by Fred Sasaki to contribute to The Printers Ball on August 22 at the Museum of Contemporary Art. The concept, created by The Dollar Store, is simple: they buy me an object from a dollar store and mail it to me. I create some sort of art out of it. They sent me a fake fur purse with the words: SPOILED. My buddy Manal agreed to chew and spit and the rest is truly spoiled. Music by the gifted Winker's Army. Shot on gummy-worm video. I will eventually post the movie...
