Our friend Kurt, Bunny and I headed to the Art and Culture Center of
Hollywood (Florida) for the Art
of Nathan Sawaya featuring IN PIECES, a collection of sculptures made
from Lego bricks.
Each sculpture was also
used in a photograph by Australian photographer Dean West. I didn't really bother with
taking pictures of the pictures, beacuse, well, taking a picture of a
picture is just silly talk.
Besides, we came for the Lego bricks, not pictures of Lego bricks.
Mr. Sawaya used kragle to hold
the bricks together instead of just relying upon the inherent “snapness”
(and I'm sure, to help keep everything together during transport—I mean,
the instruction sheet for his self-portrait would rival the documentation to fully
understand the Mac computer) and frankly, I don't think the clouds would
fully stand up (or rather, float up) without the extensive use of kragle. I
don't think the kragle use diminishes anything.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or

links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: http://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
