post titled: artist name change... about time.



I have been using TAR ART RAT for a very long time, and now that I feel different, older, I will be working under that name.
not exactly my take onthe meaning of the phrase, but here is a guy who found it the same way I did (*heard in an (NPR?) interview some years ago?):
"George Lucas said that Star Wars was set in a 'used-universe' - full of technology that was endlessly patched, fixed and recycled; but nobody knew how it actually worked or could invent or innovate on it. We're moving to a used-universe." -blackbeltjones blog

on top of that there was a photo of the chairlift girl singer at a really horridly hot outdoor show in Australia performing wearing only hot pink gaffer tape on her nipples which is great.

I have been in touch with a German artist who was travelling/visiting Chile during the earthquake, so I was pleased to get a note about this art show:

Dear friends,

On Sunday I am in an exhibition, Formas Posibles De Ser Feliz, together with the wonderful Felipe Castillo and Daniel Bande.
I will show my latest drawing (Rap de Leche) and the first cut of my animation, Experiments in Full Colour.

I know most of you are nowhere near Santiago, but it'd be great if you were....

Love and shakes, Annette
