Microfortnight – 3.30.11

I have a new print in the show Microfortnight, which opens this Wednesday, March 3rd. The show was organized by Ben Sisto of LQQK Fine Arts, for a new space in Williamsburg. Please come by if you’re around! A fun theme and a cool group of artists.

Ben Sez:

“The Furlong/Firkin/Fortnight (FFF) system is a “set of units that uses impractical measurements not seriously deemed suitable for scientific or engineering use”. The fundamental unit of time in the FFF system, the microfortnight, is equivalent to 1.2096 seconds (two weeks = 1,209,600 seconds). As a fortnight spans 14 days and the word microfortnight itself contains 14 characters, LQQK reasoned that if we were to organize an art exhibition titled Microfortnight, it should be comprised of 14 artists who’s names can be displayed in 14 characters and last three-hours and twenty six minutes (14×14 / 60).”
