I received this really nice email from Paco today in remembrance of the 1 year anniversary of Marina’s show.

Dear Friends,
Today is a year that Marina got up after sitting for three months for her
performance the Artist is Present.
At this time a year ago Marina was concluding an event that touched all of
us in a very profound way.
Remember the moment when she got up a moment full of joy and liberation.
It has been a year and all I can say is that the experience of sitting
with Marina is Present in me,
I'm greatful to Marina because she elevated me.
I'm greatful Ito Marina because I was able to meet all of you wonderful
people.
I'm greatful to all of you for your contribution for her gift 75, that has
been truly meaningful to Marina.
To love and transformation,
Paco

So Ive been very thrilled with the response ive gotten on the Marina Abramovic Webcam Capture Animation Video I made. It was tweeted by MoMA, blogged and/or mentioned about by Wall Street Journal & Rachel Maddow. Its been amazing all the responses Ive gotten. The biggest request/comment Ive gotten was from people who want to add their webcam capture to the animation video. And Id like to update the video to make it as complete as possible. So im throwing out the call for anyone to send me their webcam capture. Ill be updating the video next week, so Ill be reposting/spamming this call for webcam captures all week, so that hopefully along with the new captures Ive already collected since it went live, I can gather more and more!  My original concept for this is to make it as complete as possible, and Id still like to do it.

Sitting With Marina

I just received this email from Lisa:

"… I’ve been interested in reading (and now "archiving") first person accounts of sitting with Marina (sittingwithmarina.tumblr.com/). I wondered if you know of any blogs/articles I should be sure to include? I’d also like to post short essays so if you know of anyone who’s written about their experience and would like to share it but isn’t the blogging sort please pass my email along to them. I’m looking for links to existing blog posts but will also take short essays/tweet streams/scanned journal entries and post them as well”

This is a really great idea. So if anyone out there has any first person accounts sitting with Marina Abramovic , and would like to share them, please contact Lisa at www.sittingwithmarina.tumblr.com and she’ll post them up. Ive been readng some of the posts now, and its wonderful getting the perspective of other people.
