"Pre-Post-Internet" documentation, cont'd

My show at Honey Ramka gallery in Brooklyn ends January 21 January 28 [extended one week --tm] . If you are in NYC, I hope you can come: people say "the work looks different in person." Meaning the details of hand-assembly of many of these objects is difficult to convey in photos; photos only approximate the full experience, etc. All that said, I'm continuing to post "crowdsourced documentation" (i.e., photos gallery visitors posted to Instagram and Twitter) since that's the record I'll ultimately have of this momentary blip in time and space. Below is an Instagram pic of Double Buckyball (hashtag #tommoody) by Rachel Selekman, followed by a detail of the same work from Joe Milutis's Twitter @FailureAWLife.
