The Rotating Kitchen by Zeger Reyers started rotating last Friday and will continue to rotate until February 28th 2010.
The only “art” that was involved in this was the art of the con. 1) They got someone to pay them for the installation. 2) They’ve got publicity for it. 3) They’ve got people on the internet watching at and are gathering crowds to watch it in the gallery.
What this is? It’s a huge, ballsy con. And for that, I think I love it.
Anna the Red has a gorgeous Where the Wild Things are Bento on her site.
She’s an incredible artist who happens to work with food. I don’t think I could actually eat a lunch she’s made. It just looks so darned cute. She does everything from video games, to books, to everyday things. She also gives instructions. Someday, when I’m feeling ambitious, I’ll try an Alice in Wonderland themed lunch or three… wonder what I should make the Cheshire cat out of.

I love artwork, especially surrealist, outsider, and other odd stuff. Here’s a round up of links I’ve been saving:
Surreal photography from Robert and Shanna Parkeharrison (via Boing Boing)
Incredible morbid details from Kris Kuksi (via Boing Boing)
2008 PAC Pin Ups for Bush from Burke Heffner (via Boing Boing)
Beautiful paintings from Henry Lewis and Regino Gonzales (via Boing Boing)
Fractal Art Contest (via Boing Boing)
The above will take you to the Boing Boing link talking about this.
However, my personal experience is this:
Last week, as I was exiting the Magic Kingdom. (As a lovely time as an adult there.) I over-heard two security gaurds discussing an adult theme park called “Night Kingdom.”
The rumors running around the employees suggests that it will be near Animal Kingdom and operate in the evening, starting at about 4 pm. You’ll have to be over-eighteen to get in. (In fact, they were discussing that it might take a little of the land from Animal Kingdom.)
I would have listened longer, or been nosier, but I was with my family.
I’m crossing my fingers that it comes to pass.
This is pretty cool. Cory Arcangel has created an installation piece of two computers that continually bounce out of office messages at each other. It’s called “Permanent Vacation.”
Maybe not as cool as “Imminent Disaster”, but still pretty cool.
