      Hello unto you.

      If you're wondering whatever happened to the Actions list, it'll
      return with my return from Europe in mid-April. Most of this last
      year was given over to tidying up various areas of my scattered life,
      as well as research on a book about 100 years of violent cinema; some
      of those films are painfully yet understandably obscure and require no
      small amount of circuitous, fortuitous digging.
      I'll be in New York City - my first visit there - March 17 through
      March 21 for the No Fun Fest, so feel free to say hello if you see me
      there. If you're in London (March 22 - 26), Paris (March 28 - 29),
      Zurich (April 1 - April 3) or Barcelona (April 4 - 6), let me know if
      you've got time to visit. What follows is part of a small \\\ tour
      extolling the virtues of literalism and a series of my installations
      at various museums throughout Europe. Full itinerary follows this
      most obvious of all possible teasers.
      Nearly a year's worth of silence augurs some amount of treasure...


      David Cotner,


      1, Wednesday, March 16 - Los Angeles
      INSTALLATION: "Wishes".
      A series of pennies brightly painted and cast into the waters of
      the cascading fountains at the entrance of the museum. Gradual
      waterborne abrasion leads to cascading patterns of color at the lip of
      the waterfall. Ignore the gently twirling gum wrappers and occasional
      birds; they are not part of this piece.
      Los Angeles County Museum (3 p.m.)
      5905 Wilshire Boulevard
      Los Angeles, CALIFORNIA 90036

      2, Friday, March 18 - New York City
      INSTALLATION: "Wishes".
      A series of pennies brightly painted and cast into the waters of
      the reflecting pools in the Sculpture Garden. I am informed that it
      was once heresy to mix water and copper, lest one be accused of
      alchemical leanings. We all know how well that worked out.

      11 West 53 Street

      4, Friday, March 25 - London
      INSTALLATIONS: "Wishes" and "What?".
      Tate Modern (10 a.m. - 10 p.m.)

      "What?" is a motion study involving various individuals and their

      Musée du Louvre (9 a.m. - 6:45 p.m.)
      Rue de Rivoli
      Paris 1, FRANCE
      Many American tourists like to boast about "seeing the Louver". To
      better harmony between America and France, I shall leave a series of
      louvers like these:
      all around the Louvre, until I am caught or the louvers are removed.
      "Free" is a motion study of feathers, galleries and the art thereat
      which gradually becomes a second thought.
