NOSTALGIA WEEK: DAY 5
A year or so after we hooked up as DoubleButter, after the glow of that first show wore off, we found ourselves shouting to no one in particular in the dark wilderness of the unlinked-to Internet. Really, what good is a website and a sweet body of work if no one knows about them? We weren't (and aren't) about to launch any sort of conventional advertising blitz, partly because we couldn't afford it and mostly because it struck us as abjectly lame. So we hatched the idea of graffiti furniture, dropping a couple of un-asked-for benches in prominent places (both of which needed and need a good place to sit, if we do say so ourselves) and videotaping the whole silly stunt. The video and apparent ballsiness got picked up by a few blogs and no one got arrested and, holy shit, some people noticed. Scared the piss out of us though, in a fun way. Anyway, for old time's sake, here's a draft of the flier for the show we had at the 400 (as dead now as P Design Gallery) that the bench stunt was purportedly promoting and here's a link to the video showing the installations at the DAM and the MCA.
