Most of The Rent Project

More Doodles.

More catching up.

I doodled on envelopes and wrote short notes this morning to those who sent me $3.50 but didn't request anything. I took 20 minutes for each. Being sick with a cold really set me back. I still have a dozen or more 20 minute labors to do. I'm at 81 envelopes. Of course, I paid my October rent. I'm still here. I was lucky that a few people hired me for longer periods of time.

Catching up with The Rent Project

Since doing 20 minutes of work actually takes longer, I'm still catching up on all 20-minute requests. I've had a cold since Troy Night Out. Here I am pouring wine for 20 minutes at the UAG gallery. They sent me 3.50 weeks ago.

Not bad.

The Rent Project at Troy Night Out was fairly successful. I didn't get as much traffic as I would have liked but there was a lot going on and I think people were flocking to larger venues. I had a rather minimal video slide show projected on a wall.

Troy Night Out

I'm exhibiting The Rent Project tonight at Troy Night Out. I'm going to continue the project until the end of the month. I still have 20 minute requests to fulfill. I have a sore throat today and labored breathing. I'm getting a cold. I have to install The Rent Project at 27 3rd street in Troy this morning. It's an empty storefront and I'm not quite sure how I will install yet. Unfortunately, they don't give you anytime to plan. I'm being let in the space for the first time today, the day of the show. If I had been able to get in the space a week ago and periodically until today, it would be better but so be it. Honestly, I'm disappointed in most of the work I see at Troy Night Out. Hell, maybe I'll be disappointed in my own piece.
