John Baldessari's "Your Name in Lights"

I thought this would be a good idea at the time since John Baldessari's artwork might as well be my theme song for the semester. For the Sydney Art Festival, he is creating a piece entitled Your Name in Lights. From the website:

"Your Name in Lights reflects the changing cult of celebrity in modern society and recalls Andy Warhol's prediction that in the future everyone will have their 15 minutes of fame. Drawing on imagery from Broadway theatre displays and Hollywood films, this ambitious new work will involve more than 100,000 participants."

Alas, my scheduled time
for 15 seconds of fame is way too early to view on the webcam in Indiana - it is Friday 28th January 2011 at 5:04:40 AM Eastern time. It will be 9:04 PM in Sydney so at least it will be dark when it is viewed. Perhaps it will look something like this minus the fireworks.

Register here if you are interested.
