Ok, so I totally dissed a sculpture included in an upcoming
auction at Wright in Chicago.
I dissed it because it is horrible.
BUT, the artists who made it are not. 
I actually NOW love their work.
A MONDOBLOGO reader suggested I look at their work
more closely, and do a post.
Thanks to that anonymous reader I am now a 
Thanks anonymous reader!
(I still hate the sculpture at Wright though....)
Thanks to Greg at Greg.org for this
That puts the its horribleness
in perspective....

  2. one of my favorites is still the second piece of theirs I ever saw, called Powerless Structures, Fig. 59, it was a slide projection of the moon reflected in a little pool in the sketchy basement of The Project's garage building in Harlem.
