Meet Nature Boy who shared his office with me right outside the White House. He keeps regular office hours in Lafayette Park talking to people about life. This wise man was kind enough to let me scribe the Constitution in his office.
"The Constitution is priceless, the value of its message and intent is to ensure that every man is equally treated in all respects. People are not comprehending the Constitution. The Preamble is the intent, it gave power to the people. The government is the people’s trustees and workers. They are working for us. The articles and amendments are designed to insure that. My job everyday is to be here to keep the Constitution strong over the USA."

Artist Residency on Chinese Sinovision TV 12×12微型房屋 绿色田园生活之初体验 - 美国中文网视频

Sinovision came to interview me at the Queens Botanical Garden during my artist residency on GMO Seeds and a Bill of Rights for Seeds. Wish I could understand Chinese.

If you are in NYC, I am giving an artist’s talk at the International Print Center New York, Thursday, July 18 at 6PM about my collaboration with Iraqi friends on the book for the “Al-Mutanabbi Street Starts Here” traveling exhibition.
     The exhibition of 280 artists’ responses to the 2007 car bombing of the booksellers street in Baghdad are on view at 5 venues in New York before continuing to other international venues and making a permanent home in the Baghdad National Library. They can try to destroy intellectual life in Iraq and we will keep making and sending more books.

Today, a photo journalist named Nick from a Queens newspaper came to visit my studio in the garden. He said, “I’ve met plenty of artists, but you are the first I’ve met with brass balls.”
