Wow! Chimera by Woolfalk provided vast details, visuals, and handcrafted costumes. You should check out this exhibition before it ends. Lastnight, I saw the performance about The Empathics, which is a new idea, and concept about a species of women.
Chimera Saya Woolfalk
Exhibition Dates: January 22, 2013 – April 25, 2013
For Chimera, her first solo exhibition at Third Streaming, Saya Woolfalk will continue her ongoing investigation of a fictional species of women called Empathics as mythological and genetic chimeras. A chimera is both an imaginary female monster with disparate parts, and a scientific term for a genetic organism composed of two or more genetically distinct tissues – for example, partly male and partly female, or an artificially produced individual having tissues from several species. Woolfalk will explore the beauty and violence of this hybrid condition in video, photography, painting and performance.
Woolfalk’s The Empathics is a mixed media project that explores the work of a fictional group of women who inhabit and explore the unfamiliar experience of interspecies hybridization. The artist uses this science-fiction inspired project to attempt to undermine stable conceptions of identity and to examine how hybrid identities emerge and transform through biological and cultural contact.

"San Diego Surf" was directed by Andy Warhol whom gave me a flashback of what it was like in the 60's on the beaches of San Diego. It was funny, quirky, elusive, and kind've disturbing but that's some of Andy's films for your own disliking. The MOMA's theater was packed, and I am not saying that I didn't like the film from our beloved 'Pop artist' icon. However, I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to ride the wave and get tanned like a 60's surfer, and listen to a bitter San Diego's housewife.
