At midnight on Saturday, T.Whid and I walked into Superior Deli near our studio in Brooklyn with a video camera and a debit card. For the next 18 minutes we wandered the aisles making odd sculptural design decisions like, “Do we need a bag of charcoal?” or “Tall boys?” After hauling the goods back to the studio in the cold night air like a pair of over-sized, black-cloaked elves; we knew what we had to do: drink beer and build a snowman. Somewhere in the night, we named him after our favorite architect, Frank (who, as a hockey lovin’ Canadian, might enjoy the thought that two artists named a sculptural snowman made from newspapers, hot glue and crumpled tinfoil after him).
After finishing Frank
, we walked out of the studio to the 3am surprise of winter’s first snowfall. Brooklyn’s empty streets never looked better. So, please stop by Artist Space on Dec 13-17 and say “hi” to Frank. We believe he has the power to grant your winter wishes.
