June 30, 2014 - I might be out of the loop or behind the times on this one. I admit to being late in documenting this work from DKult Ethopia. I am no expert on international postal systems, but I do think this might have been mailed from Ethiopia. I am not aware, however, that any official DKult chapter has ever been…Continue

Imagine for a moment Michael Harford's joy when he came across this wonderful book in some dank, cockroach infested cellar at an estate sale (some details may be inflated for purposes of drama). The cover alone, without the strangely modern title, would be worth the price of many sighs. But this, as it turns out, was a popular self-improvement book of its time.…Continue

I was strolling past the Museum of Extremely Large Paintings the other day and I decided to spend the $8 to get in. The new exhibit was a joint showing of Jay Block and Amy Irwen's work. Wow! I said to myself. Now there's a coincidence! The docent gave me a stern look as I snapped this picture. I had to slip her a fiver to avoid litigation. She was a decent docent, just doing…Continue
I hear the plaintive sounds of the metsästystorvi which means it's time to blog Carina's piece of August 2009, a mash up involving a national geographic travelogue colliding with a comic strip having its own deconstruction issues. As always, there's seems to be a lively animated wit behind it all.
Here's the rotated version so you don't…Continue
It's been so long since I received this I must guiltily admit that I can't remember whether I added and passed this piece but I thought it looked pretty good upon arrival. I hope you can view this large enough to get the effect that I got of staring down into a dark pool and seeing the various things floating on the surface with others in the center having sunk to the bottom.…Continue

Ever heard of PunnikinBombing? I though not.
Ever heard of a Punnikin? If not, don't worry, I'll (sort of) get round to defining this below
Ever heard of YarnBombing? Perhaps, but if not, this is how Mr Wicked P Dia defines it:

Here we are again, back on the Polo Mint trail again.
This time at the Bonnefanten Museum, Maastricht, the Netherlands, on 24 June, 2014.
Where the Polo Minting had a rather sad ending.
To recap: the idea of this series is to place a Polo Mint on a work of art in a gallery, museum or wherever I happen to find something interesting, take a quick photo, and then move on before I get asked to leave, or thrown out, or followed round by suspicious…Continue
