Comment yrs truly left on Paddy Johnson's blog:

Check out the slick video of the artist making a "gunpowder drawing" on the New York Times video page (linked to in Roberta Smith's article). Talk about your Asian stereotypes. It's like the Hans Namuth film of Pollock making a painting done in the style of the '70s TV show Kung Fu. With gratuitous slo-mo!

I have seen the future of the Web and it is bad TV.

A discussion of the artist's horrible "flying wolves" installation is here. One good thing about not having comments enabled is no one can say "see how much conversation this work is generating" when the work is, in fact, bad.
