And Even MORE Astonishing? Matthew Barney Has A Watch

From Linda Yablonsky's account of a Matthew Barney/Elizabeth Peyton colabo on Hydra, sponsored by Dakis Joannou:

"Barney looked at his watch. 'Just about two hours,' he said to Peyton. 'Not bad. After all, there's a limit to how long you can ask people to wait.' Coming from the king of slow, this seemed even more astonishing than the event."
Reminds me of the demolition derby/used car gig he put together in LA a little while back. If nothing else, Barney is a masterful social engineer, transforming his guest list/audience "from jaded personalities into humble acolytes."

Since 2001 here at greg.org, I've been blogging about the creative process—my own and those of people who interest me. That mostly involves filmmaking, art, writing, research, and the making thereof.

Many thanks to the Creative Capital | Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Program for supporting greg.org that time.
