Sad Objections

"A few weeks ago we posted a call for artists to assist in a massive mural in Washington DC, sponsored by the fantastic nonprofit group Albus Cavus. The final wall is absolutely stunning.

"Marine biologists in New Zealand are also using glass shells to help study hermit crabs. These crabs voluntarily moved into the hand-blown glass shells with 7-10 days of the glass shells being added to the tanks."

Duchamps like when his "ready-made, or which reduced Buren painting band. Therefore I was the appropriate red and white because the colors are signs in the city. Lignes Rouges
