My first participant is my good friend Acumamakiki. She hails from New Jersey and she is an acupuncturist, roller derby ref, mama and wifey.
1. What is your favorite color? Purple
2. Who is your favorite artist? Rothko
3. If you were a painting which one would you be? Why?
I would be Rothko's Seagram murals, the ones slated for the Four Seasons hotel. He decided the place sucked (commercialism, etc.) and pulled the project on the spot and returned the money. I'd be the series that now hangs in the Tate Gallery in London, rich browns and reds, I get lost in those paintings. I find the paintings soothing and I'd like to be that for people gazing upon me (were I actually a painting) and of course, the controversy suits me well.
