Daniel let us know about a new show he's curated at bG Gallery in Santa Monica: the Orgone Accumulators.
"I don't know why I chose the artists in this show really, I can't deconstruct it in any logical way. It's a very illogical process. Maybe that's why I named the show The Orgone Accumulators. That's an illogical process too, but people swear by it. I tried to get an actual accumulator for the show, but no one would let me borrow theirs. I even emailed the museum in Maine and they sent me this super paranoid response as to why I couldn't rent one. When I pressed them on, they just sent me a big NO. I think that drove me even further into the name. I don't like being told no. Especially not by a strange museum in Maine."
What's an orgone accumulator???
"Haha! They are boxes made of organic materials that you sit in, which are meant to restore positive energy (named orgone) to the body in order to cure and prevent diseases. What makes it so strange is that the scientist who invented everything was arrested by the US government, hence the paranoid museum: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orgone ... I first heard about them from a really weird Czech film named W.R. Mysteries of The Organism..."
The show opens February 7th-- check it out!
