Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, NYC

I was invited, in 2012, to be included with over 150 Contemporary Artists and New York school children to each donate 200 Postcards to the "Gutai Card Box", in the exhibit Gutai: Splendid Playgroundat the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, NY (2013).

My work for the 200 postcards was to draw 8 Self-Portrait Trading Cards that were stickers with QR codes that went to an Animated Video on YouTube. Everything I tried to do was new, I learned how to create an animated video from my drawing program's playbacks, add sound and audio. Develop a QR code and design the stickers.

Having designed the technology to draw the images and to produce an end result that was in a museum exhibition was a completely new experience. even though I was using historicism in my imagery (later Gutai embraced historic influences), by concept and practice I was all #Gutai, which their Manifesto calls for Newness; new technology and materials, and the interplay of painting/drawing and performance.
