Noticed this while walking down Valencia Street and realized that I hadn’t seen what the kids at Artist Television Access have been up to lately. Time to change that! The DIY ethos exuded by ATA is pretty much what our neighborhood is based on.
A little research reveals that Robin Johnston is the creator of this piece, and she just happens to be holding an opening this afternoon from 4-7pm. Titled Keeping Count (similar to my favorite Depeche Mode song!!!), it depicts ALL American casualities from 2003 to 2010. Each string represents a day, and each knot in each string represents a death. Deep stuff!
So perform your patriotic HUMANITARIAN civic duty at ATA this evening (or whenever you happen to walk by the window).
