Spidertag at 5 Pointz Long Island

Not another nail in the wall (of fame) / New York 2013 – Spidertag

“If I like it, it feels like magic. I jump for joy. And if I don’t like it, I forget about it.”

Every couple of months, I’m dazzled by a new video by Madrid-based artist/sculptor Spidertag. If I’m not enthralled by him jazzing up old cabins in the European countryside, he’s causing geometric distractions on the mean streets of NYC.

Watch Spidertag in action at 5 Pointz here:

This past Sunday was a perfect day. In the early spring sunshine, we were surrounded by authors, firefighters, crafters, and friends working together to create a project to commemorate Joy Kogawa and her historic family home in East Vancouver.

Thank you to those who knit and crocheted hundreds of blossoms, climbed ladders, hosted events, made soup, bought books, read from your novels, and cheered us on. You made my soul sing.
