Second Saturdays Art Walk: A Taste of Dadarhea, Butter, and the End
Desert Animals: When we were finally almost stuffed, there was "Desert Animals" at the End's Design District squat-slash-showroom. Curated by Kathryn Marks, the exhibition is an overview of handmade stuff by the 305's Dino Felipe. It's a feast of random rad stuff: You've got found objects, custom clothes, CD and tape covers, and pixilated porno prints.
"It's a few different types of work," says Felipe. "One section consists of a series called Desert Animals. They are shadowy black and white X-ray looking 'beings.'" He continues: "There is another series named Sex Glitch 1-3, which deals with photographs I took of 'sex acts' gone wrong (via PC glitching). Finally, there's Homage to Gossip Mags, which I believe are the comic books of the future."
For dessert, we got some dancey distorto-pop. Powered by a six-pack of Mike's Hard Limeade, Dino took to the microphone, pressed play on his prerecorded backing tracks, and shimmied around shouting "Yabba dabba do." Then the clock ticked to 11, Dino sipped another limeade, and August's art walk was history.
