LAND had the pleasure of working with Zoe Crosher to present a Nomadic Night in the penthouse of the Chateau Marmont centered around her Transgressions series and Eve Babitz (more information at http://www.nomadicdivision.org/exhibitions/nomadicnights/crosher/default.html).  We are thrilled to be working with her again on an upcoming cross-country Manifest Destiny billboard project supported by the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation. 

Here’s our weekly poll:

1.) If there were 2 extra hours in every day, somehow only for you, that is, everyone else would only have 24, what would you do with them?

ZC:  If we are going to go this far, can I add an additional fantasy element of being able to traverse space and time? I would love to be able to bird watch all over the world, and would specifically start at a small island off the coast of Auckland, New Zealand called Tiritiri that is a bird sanctuary where I once spent a magical day. The whole island is dedicated to bird watching as there are species of birds there that haven't changed for millions of years - colored pigeons, black swans, the very rare Kiwi bird, the works. I'm not interested in bird watching for the counting off or checklist aspect, I am endlessly enthralled by bird habits, even city bird habits. It is one of the few things that truly relaxes me and that I can spend days doing…would be an awesome way to spend those extra two hours. At least that is what strikes me if I did have an extra two hours this morning!

2.) If you could add one sentence/amendment to the constitution what would it be?

ZC:  At this point, taking out the second amendment all together.

3.) If you could only eat/drink one type of thing forever, what would it be? For clarity: one breakfast, one lunch, one dinner, one drink, one dessert, one snack. (No multi course meals allowed)

ZC:  Anything stuffed! Inspired by a recent trip to Croatia where all forms of stuffed food abound, from the Viennese inspired apple strudel type things, to the Bosnian Burek (fried dough stuffed with cheese) to the more soviet influences of stuffed cabbage rolls and stuffed green peppers. There were even meats stuffed within meats, although those got a bit intense at times…I would love to take this to the next level, fruits within fruits, drinks within drinks, chocolates within chocolates within fruits, etc.

Happy New Year – best to come, and all that....xxxsmm
