on cruise control....

Finally! I have my venue and dates down. The last hurdle...for now...
I will be having my first solo show at Gallery Ssamzie at Ssamzie Gil located in one of the art centers in Seoul - Insadong.

www.ssamziegil.co.kr

I'm showing from April 30 - May 4. But the real good news was that the curator that i met with was impressed with my work and is working to extend the show for another week. This is important because it would extend through Children's Day and Father's Day (Korean, not the American holiday), which are two very busy days. Of course she thinks that this would give me more exposure, which is obviously a good thing.

I am also nearly done with my Thesis! I just need to give it a good once over and get it translated into Korean. soo whoo-hoo!

I'm going to end this post with a completely irrelevant thought regarding the economic situation (subprime fiasco). With the recent investigations and SEC probes taking place, i have to wonder if this was all an economic conspiracy staged to drive the world markets down. the few economic elite responsible for this crap would be able to get back into the market at super discounted prices. i sure wouldn't put it beneath the US to stage such an attack.

ok...well i'm off to start my day with long craved pancakes, eggs and sausage. now i can fit into that american stereotype and i can finally tell my korean friends, "yes i had bread and eggs for breakfast and no, i didn't eat rice and soup with a side of kimchi."

That theory is interesting about the stock market. I agree with you that the market has been kept artifically high and while they will be able to buy at a significant discount I tend to believe that this is the result of the administration and their big-wig friends trying to keep the market high while they are in office. Once out or before the end, we will see a real collapse. What's $600/person going to do? Allow more spending...yes. Whatever happenned to IMMR?
