hi Darcy, your suggestion to Jeff (below) gives me the idea of connecting with Fron (Brendan the clockmaker) and Patrick the photographer, the same way.
hi Fron, Patrick, meet Darcy fearless leader of kwartzlab and currently goto guy for this museum project. Could you bring that clock and those canvasses to the lab on open night Aug 30th, 7-10pm ? It looks like the best way to get your work into the show (especially with you Fron being away during installation week). It should go through the lab anyway - all this is happening at the group's invitation in the first place, not personally mine.
Meanwhile I went to see Lori-Ann and got my own arrangements sorted out. The overhead wall and 2nd floor area are still available but this isn't guaranteed forever. She is quite concerned about the lack of contact from the lab but still hopes something will be done. I wasn't able to tell her anything concrete - only that Darcy said he'll be in touch. If kwartzlab needs x amount of space, power, lighting, display cases etc, I'm guessing from the museum's point of view this is getting to be very late in the day.
One other bit of info - installation being Sep 6th, 7th and 8th - the museum has 2 shows going out and 2 coming in at the same time, so there will be staff to give a hand with luggage throughout the day, and we'll "probably" have access in the evening as well.
ps Jeff, what ever happened to your friend Dave with the robots ? I wrote once but got no reply.
