In 2009 LACMA exhibited ‘Storage Piece’ by Haegue Yang as a part of the ‘Your Bright Future’ show. The piece is a performance/installation piece that reveals itself over the run of the exhibit. At first it’s a pile of milkcrates (Korean crates, not sure if it’s strictly milk) and then during off hours, they unpack the art. Unpacking Storage Piece via the LACMA Blog. You can read more about this piece on Haegue Yang’s site.
If you don’t know ESPO then you need to educate yourself and learn the ways of the modern mastermind. If you would have asked me, sight-unseen, “how many milkcrates ESPO does have in his studio?” My answer would have been, “about 20.” I think I would have been pretty spot on. –> Steve Powers ESPO at his studio in New York City, via The Selby
In NYC a group of writers has taken the writing to the streets and is offering a poem writing service. The poems are very reasonably priced (in the $5 to $20 range) and it’s better than writing advertising copy, right? The Poem Shop service was started by William Chrome and I love that the girl in the photo above is using a milkcrate as her typewriter stand. –> The Poem Shop via Adrian Shirk
The students of Illonois Institute of Technology created this great lawn installation using milkcrates and some wedge shaped elements. It’s very well done and I’m surprised it didn’t come up on my crate-dar sooner. via–> Thank You For Your Submission, Lawn installations at Illinois Institute of Technology
