Semi Annual Updatage

Though we have been quiet here at the Empire S.N.A.F.U Restoration Project, we have not been idle.Behind locked doors restoration of some of S.N.A.F.U.'s most potent artifacts continues at a terrifyingly slow pace.
But of this I must not speak.

So we must avert our gaze to instead observe the outer world…
A feature article by Michael Idov on the Empire S.N.A.F.U Restoration Project is currently in the july/august issue of NY-arts magazine(page 10)It may also be seen online at http://nyartsmagazine.com/articles.php?aid=197
{Your inept curator must correct an unfortunate omission. The panoramic photograph at the base of the page should have a photo credit to the notorious Bibiana Medkova. More of her work maybe viewed on her website at http://www.skrabat.cz/
She also can also be emailed at bmedkova@hotmail.com }
Also, a series of coin-operated mechanisms constructed by S.N.A.F.U. were recently rehabilitated and used to great effect in a short Futurian film featuring Amanda Palmer and Brian Viglione, a musical duo who perform under the moniker "the Dresden Dolls."Theoretically you can see it here http://search.launch.yahoo.com/search/lsearch/all?p=the+dresden+dollsBut not worth attempting if you are on an old, slow, dial up connection like mine.

For those of you in Brooklyn this fall, check out the group show "DoLLhOuSes in the DoLLhAuS" Opening reception Saturday September 11th, 2004.The DOLLHAUS Gallery is in the Williamsburg 37 Broadway (between Wythe Ave. and Kent Ave) Be sure to check its website for more details at http://www.dollhaus.org/ The Empire S.N.A.F.U Restoration Project probably won't have much presence in this show, but over the years the Dollhaus has been one of the projects homes away from home.

To continue publicizing things tangentially related to S.N.A.F.U.There is an important online comic by friend and occasional collaborator of the Empire S.N.A.F.U. Restoration Project, HANS RICKHEIT. Those of you familiar with Hans's comics know his work is highly personal and seldom ventures to the political realm, but his 8 page featurette, entitled "HAIL JEFFREY", evokes the current U.S. climate rather perfectly. "HAIL JEFFREY" is included in the new issue of CHROME FETUS and may also be viewed at http://zeitgeist.numachi.com/chromefetus/hailjeffrey.html
If you are not already familiar with Hans's work, be warned! Not for faint of heart or minors. If you suspect you might fall into one of these categories, don't look.
