The Raygun Rover as well as the Raygun Gothic Rocketship and a bunch of other Bay Area art appears in this German TV Show:
The winter storms. Warehouses open their doors and close them again. The treehouse must move. Out of Treasure Island and into the badlands of East Oakland… NIMBY takes us in for a while as we make a list of that which needs fixing; Wiring, windows, holes in walls, a new roof.
In June the Treehouse moves to Delaware to be installed a brewery,.. we’ve got our work cut out for us!
Last week I helped Michael Christian pick up the “Egg” from the Reliance powder coating in San Leandro:
Unfortunately they couldn’t fit the sculpture into the powder coating oven and had to paint it by hand. This was less than ideal for a number of reasons – mostly, Michael said, because he could have bondo-ed the weld seams faster than the grinding of the seams necessary for powdercoating, and as a result obtained a smoother finish. ANother important lesson learned is that there is now a metal-to-metal bondo that contains aluminum – which means you can use it in the powder-coating process!
We then took the egg over to the new NIMBY space in Oakland, which is HUGE! It will be exciting to see NIMBY 2.0 evolve….
