More on the Smack Mellon Studios

A number of the workspaces tempted us during our visit to Smack Mellon's Open Studios Thursday evening, in adition to that of Valerie Hegarty. We were especially intrigued by the work of Shin il Kim, Andrea Loefke and Austin Thomas.

We'd seen the amazing videos of Kim at Axel Raben's Paper Chase show last April, and Austin Thomas's constructing presence is difficult to avoid anywhere in New York these days. (But, damn, I still haven't seen the neat folding outfit she created for that fantastic Ford El Camino of hers!). Finally, while I think this was the first time I'd seen any of the elements of Loefke's delightful, exploding world, I'm sure it won't be the last.
