Shave your head for art!
I am looking a woman who is willing to shave their head (or cut their hair very short) for a short, experimental film. The scene will be done in a bathtub so comfort with partial/full nudity is a plus but not necessary.

The project is going to be shot the weekend of March 1st (exact
day/time is flexible). I can't pay, but copy and credit will be provided as well as transportation (we will be shooting in New York, NY) and snacks for the shoot. The crew is small and the shoot will be laid back, fun, and creative.

Please email me for more details or if interested-

dear everyone

please forgive the promotional aspect of this post but a visual artist,
and i am currently looking for some shows to be in this year. my
website is at

below is my artist statement

My work is about my life as a person with a disability, I use both
humor and seriousness as away of dissecting and examining the world in
which both you and I live in. I frequently cite and use history, my
personal life and the experiences of others as a means of questioning
and re-examining our societies view point on the concept that is

Aesthetically most of my work falls under the category of conceptual
art, in that the concept of the work comes first and then the
aesthetic/type of work comes after I have thought about the work and
came to decision on how the idea should be presented. I feel that this
way of making and presenting work/ideas allows me to be more flexible
when it comes to the amount of money, time and space I need to execute
a work of art.

The Met Asian Gallery.
This has been bothering me. I need this information for a paper. For those of you who has visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art, what is the name of the artwork displayed in the entrance of the Asian gallery? It was a GIANT painting with Buddha in the center and the Bodhisattvas around him.

Please respond ASAP. @___@;

The Yes Men

I thought some of you here might find this to be of interest: (about the Yes Men) 

Synopsis: The Yes Men is a biting and revelatory documentary directed by the filmmaking team behind the acclaimed Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winner American Movie. The Yes Men follows The Yes Men, a small group of prankster-activists, as they gain worldwide notoriety for impersonating the World Trade Organization on television and at business conferences around the world. The film begins when two members of The Yes Men, Andy and Mike, set up a website that mimics the World Trade Organization's and it's mistaken for the real thing. They play along with the ruse and soon find themselves invited to important functions as WTO representatives. Delighted to represent the organization they politically oppose, Andy and Mike don thrift-store suits and set out to shock unwitting audiences with darkly comic satire that highlights the worst aspects of global free trade.

Watch for "THE YES MEN" coming to New York and L.A. the week of Sept. 24th.

No info on times and locations yet. It is put out by United Artists, so you can look up the listings at :
