This week: This show has everything, the Amanda Browder Show, Justin Cooper, Richard finally records a new outro, and some of the most annoying music ever used on BAS!!

NYC/Browder talks to Brooklyn based artist Justin Cooper. Post a few deadpan jokes, and moments of spacing out…(edited of course)  we discuss his history of his work, and his installationSpreadsheet, and performance Mowers of Ten presented by the Art-In-Buildings program, and Monique Meloche Gallery. The project is in conjunction with The Armory Show that is going on next week.

Employing a strategy of “endless introducing,” Cooper plays both host and hosted, in an effort to eradicate the line between these two states. With the classic Charles and Ray Eames film, Powers of Ten, as inspiration, and Cooper’s installation, Spreadsheet serving as a backdrop, the performance aggregates comedic bits, routines, acts, sound fragments, free floating signifiers, and chains of non sequitors systematized into miniature narratives, into a simulation of comedy. Like “Friends” minus the laugh track or AstroTurf as a surrogate for suburban lawn, Mowers of Ten, highlights the impossibility of reconciling the intellectual with the visceral. “I know this isn’t funny…and yet.” “I know this isn’t grass…and yet.”
