today at the wegmans i purchased 5 figs for $1. Actually the price tag was different, perhaps $2 something but at the cashier they charged only a dollar. I felt so happy of course and didn't say anything to correct the mistake. And a minute ago I ate the last one. It was so juicy and delicious, just like the previous four.

By the way, Paul please don't be angry to me but I submitted the Public Transphere Project to ISEA2006. So if by any chance they accept the project we would need to go San Jose, CA next summer!!!! I hope they are covering the fees, though.

Boston - Buffalo

I was in Boston for the past 4 days. I helped orkan to move in to his new apartment (actually his new room) in Cambridge. I guess I like the city, but now I know that making up your desicion about a city requires more than just a tourist view of things. Nice food, though, very nice and from all over the world, and cheap.

I am curious about the art community there, if there is any?. I couldn't find time to research about that. I wonder if anyone lived in Boston can tell me the good things and the bad things about the city. I might be moving there within 6 months. maybe a little later.

I'll miss Orkan. mmmm. sad.

Pics from the Hydration Performance...


- I was giving out cups full of ice to people on Elmwood, between Allen and North St.


- and telling them to go to 133 Elmwood if they would like to have a free beverage.


- At the location, they placed their empty cups to the bucket that was hung from the second floor window.


- There, Julie Perini was waiting... to fill the cups with either lemonade, ice tea or water.


- 133 Elmwood was very popular for a while. People met with other people, neighbors, and had conversations about daily things, politics...etc.

self defence II

I am definitely not saying protection is not necessary. But how people are exaggerating this situation is bothering me a lot. I heard of stories like, there are people living in the suburbs who have never ever came to downtown Buffalo as they believe it is dangerous here. They chose to “fence in” themselves into their small, tiny, "neighborhood watch" community to live their lives securely.

I have several examples from my own country (Turkey) where people do not let their daughters/girl friends/partners…etc. to go out at nights because they think something bad can happen. Families usually, literally, trap those young women in to their rooms and wait them find husbands. Then the same thing continues in the husband’s house, of course. So what happens, lots of insecure, mad, silent women go insane in their “highly secure” lives.

Indeed, something can happen -to any of us- any time, but it is not any safer to live with this paranoia, believing all “ others” are waiting out there to attack us on the walkway.
