Duchamp/BBC/1966 part 2

I particularly enjoyed hearing Duchamp explain what a readymade is. I love hearing him explain what he did and why he did it. Marcel Duchamp will always be one of the most influential conceptual thinkers that formed my esthetic awareness. He really changed the way we all look at art define creativity. His concepts of almost one century ago are as still as fresh and radically relevant today.

Hello Microdot,
Yesterday I went to the Columbus Conservatory off Broadway and they had a small exhibit of Dale Chihuly pieces. I really enjoyed it.

Wow, you are in NYC! I hope you are enjoying yourself! I am familiar with I am from Toledo and very into glass art...I actually saw some of his work at an exhibition at the Toledo Museum Glass Center...One of the great glass art collections on the planet!
When I first moved to NYC, my friends all worked at a place called Let There Be Neon...we had all gone to the Museum School of Design and they have one of the best glass centers in the world. I worked there for 3 years as a neon technician....and mover....very interesting. I got a lot of electric shocks.
