Aqua Regia flasks are now available through the Sandman Slim store. Drink up, drinkers.
Are you a Jack Daniels drinker? Or does Stark drink that as fall back from Aqua Regia because you think it's nasty? Or does that choice have nothing at all to do with your own drink preferences?
I like Jack Daniels and so does Stark. In fact, in the book I’m writing now, he’s quite happy when someone gives him a bottle of Gentleman Jack.
Joaquin Jara is a multidisciplinary artist. All of his aspects, from interventions in natural and urban environments to painting, sculpture, and experimental movies, converge on a common objective.
The portrait is displayed as an object subject to internal and external forces, those of the environment, which generate constant changes. Therefore, it will be a representation of the subject processes. An instant inside a sequence of images in continuous transformation. An image saved, which does not illustrate identity, but testifies it. An image without a possible conclusion, as it resides on instability.
"Never try to convey your idea to the audience - it is a thankless and senseless task. Show them life, and they’ll find within themselves the means to assess and appreciate it."
If you’re in San Francisco, I’m doing a reading and signing at Borderlands Books and Cafe this afternoon at 3pm.

“This exhibition examines how design has been applied to information technology products; and about how a handful of companies made complicated technology appealing and easy to use. It is also about the visionaries who started some of the great consumer product companies of the 20th century and how the designers and engineers they hired found a means of imparting their ideals into the products they designed.”
