Luke Murphy

The Longest Painting of Death is a digital work that takes an image of Albert Pinkham Ryder’s “The Race Track” (Death on a Pale Horse c.1896), enlarges it to the painting’s original size of 27 3/4" x 35 1/8", stretches it digitally until it is one mile in length and then traverses it in 02:11:20 min, the average speed of the still fastest race horse, Secretariat. This piece is an extension of two “minimalist” works done almost ten years ago. The Mile Long Page and the Square Mile Page, both digital updates of Walter de Maria’s Vertical Kilometer, consist of a mile-long line of single black pixels and a square mile of black pixels respectively. In The Longest Painting of Death, Murphy stretches the painting to the length of a race track, “moving” along the track on the screen, thereby encouraging the viewer to switch from the side of the course to the perspective of Death watching the landscape as it passes by.

A sculptural landscape. When the sun sets and after the sunsets and before it is night, the sky has light but there is no actual sun. The light is very soft and there is something magic about it. It limits with some kind of magic look, a softening beauty and fragility.

blogger skins

“blogger skins” is a project based on time-specific capturing of image Google searches.
The community most sensitive to this new phenomenon, and par excellence conceptually most related, is the world of pro-bloggers. For this project I chose five art bloggers: Tom Moody (, Paddy Johnson (, Regine Debatty (, James Wagner ( and Joy Garnett ( and performed specific image searches on their names. The thumbnails of first 100 images were imported (in the order of appearance) into an HTML editor and compiled into an image map, reflecting the original Google layout and popularity of search items.

Abstract Horror at Galapagos

Sun Oct 14, 2007 00:00 - Thu Oct 11, 2007

Galapagos Abstract Horror Sunday 7.30
Program Abstract Horror

7.30-7.45 Matt Freedman and Tim Spelios (performance)
In this collaboration these multi-talented artists riff off each other, Matt drawing cartoons as Tim drums. Satire meets absurdity in this off-beat combination.

7.50-8.05 Ken Butler (performance)
Ken Butler’s Voices of Anxious Objects The artist-musician performs mesmerizing world textures and driving melodic gypsy grooves with passion and purpose on an amazing arsenal of amplified hybrid string instruments made from household objects and tools. Duchampian Dada meets Hybrid Hindu Hendrix as function and form collide in an environment ofhyperactive hardware. Perhaps he will drag out some of the more “dangerous” instruments for this show. Guns, swords, axes, and knives may sing for their supper.

8.10-8.17 Oliver Michaels “Marching to the Sun” quicktime movie A ridiculous video sculpture that spits and spews various mundane objects, so questioning perpetual energy and common sense.

8.20-8.8.23 Richard Kern (“Lulu in the woods”1 minute. A short video of a beautiful young woman (lulu) moving around in nature in her underwear. Innocence mixes with anticipation of some action.

8.25-8.30 Marcin Ramocki “Serenity” dvd “Serenity* is a short and funny video depicting a group of people discussing the artistic merits of the
sci-fi feature "Serenity”

8.32-8.33 Jillian Mcdonald “Zombie Animation” A motley crew of zombies - images downloaded from www documentation of flash mob “zombie-walks” - lumber through post-industrial cityscapes long gentrified and now rezoned for condo living.

8.34-8.40 Linda Post ( Mortal Storm) dvd Mortal Storm appropriates the opening footage of a Hollywood film of
the same title from 1940. A god-like voice booms over storm clouds,
lamenting human the weakness to resort to violence. The scene is
repeated, locking us in a loop of the dilemma.

8.41-8.46 William Stone “Savage Ferox” dvd
In 2005 Stone traveled 150 miles up a jungle river in Guyana South America with Mark Dion and Bob Braine. Shark the guide tells a story of the only movie that he had ever seen on a big screen as a few bottles of rum were consumed around the jungle campfire. It was an Italian movie called Savage Ferox (sometimes called Let them Die Slowly) that was banned in Italy because it was rumored that real human corpses were used.

8.50-9.05 Tom Moody (performance) For this performance Moody will play a selection of his tunes accompanied by looping animated GIFs from his website.

9.10- Bubbly Fish (performance) Playing with a gameboy Haeyoung Kim creates penetrating 8-bit music .

Ken Butler

Drawing and Driving

Ken Butler re-visits a childhood obsession with exotic racing car prototypes and model building and presents a 40ft. slot car track along with a stable of 1/32nd scale “hybrid” slot cars constructed from found objects.

In addition, a suite of detailed drawings elaborate this theme, along with other works that extend the artist’s ongoing exploration of sound and image installations.
Bicycles, pianos, projectors, musical chairs, racing cars, and
dinosaurs are subjected to transformation and re-construction.

Also, the artist presents a sit-down race-driving simulator
(with steering wheel and pedals) utilizing a Playstation 2 and Gran
Turismo 4.

While in high school in Portland, Oregon, the artist won a
first-in-state award from The Fischer Body Company Craftsman’s Guild
for the design and construction of a sports car prototype, laboriously
carved from sugar pine. He had dreams of going to Europe to work with
high-end automobile design firms like Pininfarina, Bertone, Zagato, and
the like.
