family resemblance?

That's my sister and her sons in front of my inflatable self-portrait at the opening in Philly. You can see more pictures of the opening here.

Eternity, 2010

78" x 96" x 3"

30 electric clock movements, 36 hour and minute hands, acrylic, power strips

The clock hands align once every twelve hours to spell the word ETERNITY. Made in collaboration with Mike Fleming.

the art blog

The Eternity piece and our 500-minute long exhibition on First Friday in Philadelphia got a little write up on the art blog, a great resource for current art events and reviews of exhibitions in the Philly area. Even though people had to climb up six flights of stairs on a crazy hot and humid night, a ton of people came to see all the clock hands fall into place at exactly 8pm. Peoples' response to the work was overwhelmingly positive. My inflatable self-portrait also provided some comic entertainment. I'll be posting a video of Eternity shortly....

studio practice

" I think going to the studio every day is really a bad habit - it's like being an employee. You have to live life, and from life comes ideas."
-Marina Abramovic

"Clock" by Christaan Postma

"The word “three” completely appears when it’s exactly 3 o’clock and will then transform again as time passes. The word “four” begins to appear and at exactly 4 o’clock the word “four” is clearly visible. The word “three” is by then totally vanished and no longer readable."

See a video of it here.
