Mar. 31st - Buy Nothing, Break Something (Legally) Day!
I won’t be participating in the culture of consumerism today. Instead, I will be trying to raise money for my roommate’s sculptural project, The Slipping Glimpser!
The slipping Glimpser is a contemporary interpretation of Chicago’s World Columbian Exposition of 1892-1893. It is a large scale interactive and temporal artwork which carries on our history of exceeding the ordinary.
Tonight is the Slipping Glimpser’s First phase… The Ball Drop! We will be smashing original sculptures (for a small donation). The fragments of the smashed sculptures will then be encased in P.B.A. certified clear bowling balls for later use in the Slipping Glimpser.
So, if you are in the Chicago area, please stop buy tonight and break something. I will most likely be lazily spinning tunes and perhaps taking requests (I hate requests!!!) for a small donation. All proceeds and donations tonight will go directly into material costs for the Slipping Glimpser.
Drinks! Music! Destruction! Come on by and show your support for Chicago arts and Consumatron.com. There may even be a chance to save one of the sculptures from its fate… for a price!
$10 entrance or give what you can.

The Slipping Glimpser is a sponsored project of the New York Foundation for the Arts.
