In addition to the commissioned work My Bilbao, Jane Gottlieb has installed 70 of her large at pieces at UCLA, with all the artworks on loan for 10 years! Her artwork fills 4 floors of the UCLA Hugh & Hazel Darling Law Library.

The majority of 45 total large artworks at the Law Library have the dimensions 30 x 40 inches, with 3 of the 45 artworks a larger size of 50 x 70 inches.

Twenty-five more large artworks by Jane Gottlieb are on display at the UCLA Anderson School of Business and Management.

“It’s wonderful to be able to really enrich a whole busy University building with my art,” says Jane Gottlieb. “I have gotten wonderful feedback, and both places gave me the best receptions I have every had after 30 years of art openings! My art has been up a year now.”

Jane Gottlieb is interested in doing more commissions at special order dimensions. “I have done commissions of people’s cars, and am excited about doing more larger mural-size pieces in the near future,” said the artist.

A few months ago, I published a blog post on how to use coupon codes to save money on art supplies. It received a lot of interest from artists. So, when Markerly.com invited me to share emeals with my artist-readers, I thought that artists–who may wish to never leave their studios–will enjoy learning of ways to save time and money by getting help with shopping and meal planning. The company provides over 50 weekly plans based on customers preferred food style, family size and grocery store. Specialties include classic, clean eating, simple gourmet, low fat, low carb, paleo, portion control, organic, vegetarian and gluten-free meals.

Of course I had to try emeals for myself. A soon as I signed up I received a one week menu of recipes, with a printable shopping list. Right away I was eager to try the appetizing recipes. Plus–and a big plus for me– I loved that they provided the shopping list!  This pre-prepared shopping list a huge time-saver for me. (Often, after spending time carefully preparing, I have returned home from my shopping trips only to remember that one crucial item I had forgotten to put on my list.)  eMeals gives you a shopping list as well as COUPONS for your LOCAL grocery story (eMeals has partnerships with all major food stores). All the ingredients you buy will be used in multiple recipes so that there is no waste. So, I had faith that the detailed shopping list along with my emeals subscription would help me in many ways.
One of the first recipes I made, Meatless Mediterranean Lentils, was not only super easy to prepare, but delicious and vitamin C rich with lots of mini sweet peppers.  I love lentils! This recipe reminded of a dinner I had at a nouveau gourmet restaurant with friends, who all ordered steaks, while I preferred–much to their amazement– a bowl of lentil stew.
Here’s a photo of my cooking!

Arts ReSTORE LA: Westwood to Fill Several Storefronts with Art and Crafts

Arts ReSTORE LA: Westwood is a new initiative by the Hammer Museum to unite the creative force of local artisans and craftspeople. From November 1 to 24, the Hammer will fill several empty storefronts in Westwood, donated by the property owners to this project, with an array of artisan vendors. With its accompanying events and workshops, the Arts ReSTORE pop-up village will enliven the neighborhood with a new and vibrant retail experience.

Everyone benefits if these empty spaces come alive with locally produced goods, crafts, apparel, and furniture, and the neighborhood becomes a vibrant community where consumers can buy unique, locally made products.

Arts ReSTORE LA: Westwood is an initiative of LA2050 and is supported by a grant from the Goldhirsh Foundation. Arts ReSTORE received significant funding from UCLA. Additional support has also been provided by the Diane and Dorothy Brooks Foundation.

Meaning in the Moke Li Mixed Media Art Installation–Hana Island Super Agency

Hana Island Super Agency, installation, Moke LI

Hana Island Super Agency, installation, Moke LI

A grand logo is displayed on the monitor; armchairs, indoor plants and an office carpet all in a setting to create a seemingly calm, peaceful, everyday scene. However, the goal of this installation is to stimulate spectators’ critical reflection on our hyperreal society and its power, which is continuously executed on micro levels. The intention of the artist is to create an ambience here tainted with death, a world resembling “the smile of a corpse in a funeral home, ” to quote from Jean Baudrillard, The Transparency of Evil : Essays on Extreme Phenomena.

Artist Moke Li’s installation HANA Island Super Agency is a mixed-media work simulating the reception area of a fake agency located in a holiday resort. Some elements in this piece were extracted from a real Chinese tourist city named Hainan Island. The island was originally demarcated as one of China’s special economic zones as part of the country’s economic reform policy–a place where people rapidly accumulate capital and power. Since the island has rich tourism resources, the tourism industry unites with mass media in making non-stop propaganda and manufacturing consumer demands in order to encourage people to consume. Yet the island has been ruined by rapid and extreme development; many unfinished buildings have been left on the island after the housing bubble burst in the 1990s. “For me, the interesting point is how a dilapidated island has been figured as paradise by propaganda. It’s a case in which the boundaries between reality and spectacle have become extremely contorted,” says Moke Li in her essay on her installation project.

Moke Li, Hana Island Super Agency, installation (detail)

Moke Li, Hana Island Super Agency, installation (detail)

Many elements in this installation have symbolic meaning.  The created rebar shelves denote the China state apparatus of control, that different parts share in a homogeneous structure guaranteeing social order by establishing institutions, statutes, ideologies, language and knowledge. The rebar is also a very important symbol of the abandoned buildings in the real-life Hainan Island.


The irrational or non-rational elements in this installation, such as the fiberglass insulation on display shelves, weird souvenirs including monkey-head-shaped glass pots filled with energy drinks, postcards, and sculptural souvenirs shaped as red hands and bowling balls–gifts made from molds and mass-produced–are all meant to provide an entry-point to refuse the reality with which we’re confronted.

Hana Island Super Agency (detail), Installation, Moke Li

By incorporating these objects in his installation, Moke Li comments on ancient craft, long associated with quality and much manual labor, but within the logic of commodity production the concerns have shifted to quantities and efficiency rather than quality, destroying many ancient crafts, not just glass blowing.

Rebar, Glass, Fiber Glass, Paper, Plastic, Monitor & Projectors, CG Animation

The extremely flattened and detailed CG animation shows the hyperreal content of wonderful beaches and holiday villages behind sliding doors. As George Ritzer says: “It is a simulation that is more real than real, more beautiful than beautiful, truer than true. In a hyperreal world there is no way of getting at the source–the original reality.” For many people,  in their routine lives they are surrounded by simulation and images all the time– all designed and used to manipulate their desires.

Strange scenes flash on the projected videos on two walls of the installation, designed to contrive an illusory scene for viewers in order to allow them to feel those counterintuitive moments, and lead viewers to understand the underlying reality. A scene, which is of an unfinished structure, flashes for less than half a second in both projected videos. It is too quick to see clearly, so spectators are prone to believe it is their own hallucination or that something has gone wrong at that moment.

Stacks of different postcards designed by the artist sit on the shelves in the installation.  One of the postcards has an image of airships in sausage shapes covered with advertisements, making a statement on how media exercises its implicit violence and power through the non-stop bombardment of information and the promotion of various symbols. At the same time, mass media produces institutionalized and standardized welcoming smiles and attentive services. People can see advertisements simulating those intimate, personal communications happening between friends or loving couples in plastic-like tender feelings at the service of promoting consumption.  Causing consumers to lose their own values as they voluntarily follow media-oriented trends.

Moke Li also associates scuba diving training and certification with the island tourism industry, and designed postcards “promoting” this content. Various training institutions have replaced the traditional confined school environment, and have become deeper-seated control mechanisms by providing special courses and one-on-one counseling. It seems as if there is more freedom. Many youths participate in continuing education voluntarily in order to gain more abilities which are recognized by society. Meanwhile, the training institutions have molded teenagers’ perceptions and preferences to make them believe it is sacred and beneficial that their leisure time be occupied.

Postcard 3, Fast Deeper Stronger, Moke Li

Postcard 3, Fast Deeper Stronger, Moke Li

Another recurring symbol in this piece is the gesture of the erect palm, which, in the mind of the artist, connotes the forbidden–the raised hand a symbol of oppressive force.

blogMokeLiPost card-1HanaIslandGolfCourseHanaIslandSuperAgencyProductions

Ironically, in HANA Island Super Agency, the palm also serves as one of those cheap tourist souvenirs.  Associated with social reality in China, for its people, the external oppressive power is obvious to feel and understand. Therefore, it is no longer an insidious enemy and it will be defeated and destroyed in the end. But it is hard for people to defeat their inner desires. They adhere to them in order to make correct value judgments when facing the dazzling array of consumer information. Baudrillard describes America as a desert, implying lack of depth and emotion.  Yet China has been inevitably importing the American mode of consumption during the decades of implementing reform and opening policy. Such consumption is an insidious and concealed power which could make people consume things beyond their needs–more dangerous than the visible governing power authority.

Artist Elizabeth Fuller on the Intersection of Art and Technology

Dragon Skin, Elizabeth Fuller

Life Dress F2, Elizabeth Fuller

My introduction to technology has been both direct and circuitous. I grew up in Silicon Valley and quickly learned that the best method to get my way with my electrical engineer father was to present my arguments as a methodical solution. Yet, when the time came to go to college I pursued a degree in the liberal arts. It was only during my junior year that I enrolled in an introduction to programming using Processing. Enamored by the ability to draw programmatically, I picked up an emphasis in computing and applied for a masters program at Tisch’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP). It was there that I was introduced to the artistic potential beyond the computer screen, with interactive sculptural using the Arduino and a growing comfort with power tools.
Throughout my time at ITP, I participated in several student shows, and it was the exposure in those events that lead to an invitation to participate in a show of interactive art in Barcelona. That was eye-opening. ITP was more a sandbox for prototyping concepts than a studio for refining work.  I had never fully build out a piece that I would not be present to set up and maintain throughout its time on display. It traveled poorly.  As a result, I’ve constrained my participation to events where I can personally deliver my work. Limiting, yes, but I’m still finding that sweet spot between concept and execution.  Moreover, there is an element of user experience that I have only come to appreciate recently.
I showed my piece, Schrödinger in Boston for a month.  It is a relatively simple piece.  There is nothing to touch. It uses a proximity sensor to react to viewers and it can be turned on and off by simply plugging and unplugging it. I was, therefore, at a loss to think of what was wrong when the gallery informed me that the piece had stopped working after a few days. It was only a few months later, when I could stand near and watch people interact with it at an event in Queens, NY, that I saw that people were mistaking my sensor for a button and systematically breaking it with startling regularity. In the absence of prior knowledge of the piece and its intent, people would poke, prod, and even push the piece to achieve their anticipated interaction. Given that the piece was specifically programmed to be in defiance of expectation the inevitable, and yet overlooked, result would be a broken work of art.
Schrodinger II, Elizabeth Fuller

Schrodinger II, Elizabeth Fuller

This is the main challenge and point of excitement that I have encountered on the intersection of art and technology: it is not yet codified and can still establish its own set of rules. With paintings, we look. With music, we listen. But what to do with something that reacts to the way you try to interact with it?  Some pieces are meant to be touched, taken, or augmented. It falls on the artist to be more than just creator, to do more than guide the eye through his or her composition, but to also create an independent system for the public to experience their work.

Video: UK Painter Martin Finnin At Work in His Studio

I want to share this video interview of a UK artist. I love his angst-free descriptions of his painting process and love of the light in his studio, simplifying the complex process of painting into something pleasant and interesting.
