DESCRIPTION:  Dream Object (On a Sunday morning in W. HWD we saw a migration of art world hipsters to a location we guessed was an unannounced Matthew Barney gallery show. Inside a narrow gallery were robotic machines and a word made of unconnected burnished metal that floated on a hinge at the wall with no visible means of support. In an office / storage room gallery attendants ate salads with Matisse like paintings in their laps, exposing them to possible food stains. I thought of doing drawings of heads with their middle sections missing. One, of curly hair, dissolved to airbrush phantoms, the other, a short haired male whose middle 3rd was sliced away, leaving metallically rendered surfaces on the insides)
