I discussed with my friend Kevin the further possibilities about sticking fingers in things, and potentially getting arrested for putting my fingers in the Bueys felt and how that would go against Baldessari’s advice to always have fun when making work. When you are arrested for jamming your fingers in a Bueys, the weed starts to wear off. And the fun moves away from you like a sailboat heading off in the water.
No worries, though, I will put my fingers in some things and make a video anyway.
“Yes, stick your fingers in things, why not! … Breathe deep, weed or no weed, jump in, and have some fun along the way, it’s all over soon enough.”
“Red light”, Oil on canvas, 2012. This was a box that was on the ceiling of my friend’s bathroom. We didn’t know what it was for, the red light never went on, and we did not know who the caretaker was.
