"Confronting Mortality with Art And Science" Book Release Party and Film Screening, TONIGHT!

Snow or no, hope you can make it tonight! More details here.

Perhaps this is a good moment, also, to announce the launch of the new space in which tonight's event will take place. "Observatory" (as we are calling it) is a collaborative lecture/gallery/classroom/event space sandwiched between Proteus Gowanus Interdisciplinary Gallery and Reading Room, Cabinet Magazine, and the Morbid Anatomy library, all housed in a re-purposed turn-of-the-century box factory located at Union and Nevins in the Gowanus district of Brooklyn, New York. The collaborators include myself, animator/illustrator/musician G. F. Newland, Michelle Enemark and Dylan Thuras of the Curious Expeditions blog, Pam Grossman of Phantasmaphile, Herbert Pfostl of Blind Pony Books and Paper Graveyard, and video and book artist James Walsh. More on Observatory, and its many upcoming workshop, symposia, events and spectacles to come!

The Observatory is a very inspiring place of rare beauty!

I hope to invite you at my home in the near future in Europe!
