Good! But... that's not what really happens.

since the cliptart site has 50 mg to play with, if you need space for
archiving and/or a mirror site, we would love to host your site...

so would i just have to run the perl program above to make it into a
mirror? is this is www site? (sorry, my tech knowledge is a bit fuzzy)

and i saw the site is non-copyright - so this means i can use your jpgs
to add to the cliptart site? (just double checking!)

take care

Subject: Re: Aporia Interview

Hi Brad,

I've gone over the interview again and it feels complete to me - unless I
change my mind I'll use it as it stands. Thank you again. 

I've explored your website with a gret deal of interest, by the way. 
Beautiful! The energy is great, this continual mapping, churning,
accumulation.... One question though: I couldn't find a backlog of 12hr
jpgs. Are these available somewhere? 

Re. Toronto: Carmen Lamanna is closed, was closed well before I moved here
(almost a year ago, from Edmonton). Also S.L. Simpson just closed a few
months ago. The 'scene' isn't great here - a distinct lack of energy, and
like you say, people are very ingrained in their habits. Art Met is great
(they're carrying Aporia now) - really my favorite place here.

Artist-run centers seem homogeneous as well - YYZ(for example)'s heyday
was 10-15 years ago; their edge is gone, they look more and more like
commercial spaces every day.

I can see myself heading south as well.... 

Anyway, I'll let you know about the images I choose. Thank you again,

Oh and finally, can you send me your mailing address? 

Thanks so much --

 thank you for your interest and support of the projects.  

i've downloaded some of your jpegs and find your project very interesting.
Our 2 projects are very similiar in spirit. 

You can collect any project we have posted.  the only catch is that it is
designated an artist's proof, it does not become part of the edition.  so
far we have received two responses to project #9.

I've been reading your short texts and your unavoidable announcements for
more than two years now, and most people hate them (I suppose), and I just
love them! Or rather, they make me smile and dream of better days. 

Keep going.

Brad, don't let them get you down, you're a good man and your art is very
grown-up, a little to real for me right now but I hope to mature in the

Was that prose a quote from Levy?  Here's one I invented as I was waking
up this morning:  "I protect your experience from your eyes."  I think
that would apply to the 12 hour jpeg.

Subject: keys to the city

Thanks for thinking to send the book along.  Am presently enjoying it. 
There was a vaguely felt synchronicity.  I was reading about this guy's
adventures, with it's background text of shims and drill-bits, repairs
both yielding and unyielding, and atmospheric descriptions of New York
when I undertook to replace our ancient air-conditioning unit with a brand
new one.  I walked on down to the K-Mart and looked around until I found a
hand-truck for sale, only $21.  I wheeled it over to the aisle where boxes
and boxes of air-conditioning units were stacked, and managed to manuever
one of them on to it.  Then I wheeled the hand-truck and its burden onto
an elevator up to street level, waiting patiently for strollers and
mothers to clear the way, on to the lengthy lines at the cashiers and
finally out past the door guard who just had to bust me over seeing the
receipt...along St Mark's through super-humidity and tattoos, and finally
to my building's front door.  At this point I unloaded the hand-truck and
ever-so-patiently cart-wheeled the boxed, air-conditioning unit up the two
flights of stairs to our apartment.  At this point I congratulated myself
and decided installation could wait until morning.  After installing the
air conditioner, I planned, I would then proceed to use the hand-truck to
move my studio contents into my newly acquired, mini-storage, storage

After breakfast the following morning, I moved some furniture around and
began to de-install the existing air-conditioning unit.  When we
originally installed it tens years ago, our apartment was immediately
broken into because we hadn't secured the window sashes offset because of
the installed unit.  So we had the 'super' come and he fastened the sashes
at four points by drilling long screws into them.  What I had forgotten
was, that in his zeal at the time, he had broken off one of the screws
flush with the surface of the metal window sash.  Now this vexing, flush
piece of screw stood very firmly between me and my new, air-conditioning
unit installation.  There was nothing for it but to go to the hardware
store, through the now brilliant and baking sunlight, buy some sharp, new
drill-bits, and proceed to drill out the old screw.  This was when I began
to feel of a continuum with the book you sent.  -Jim

Dear Monsieur Brad Brace,

It is with infinite pleasure i surfed your site and viewed your long-life
photo jounal.  Although you seemingly don't have a SNA (Systeme Nerveux
Artistique) to update your creative activity, i noticed your efforts "de
toute une vie" to promote your "grand oeuvre".  So i can only encourage
you to keep going.
