Steve Fagin, UCSD visual arts professor, is working with the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) to promote the museum.
“Fagin is enlisting artists, authors, and celebrities to create stories about the museum and its collection for one platform: the cell phone. The series is called, simply, “Cell Phone Stories.” According to Fagin, “it’s meant to bring the museum and the collection alive.”
One of the installments of the series was a series of text messages and video by artist Rich Bott that was inspired by a Charles Willeford story.
After the jump you will find the full transcript of the performance including all of the videos and images.
