this weekend, steve and i hopped on down to the museum of contemporary art at the geffen to check out the last weekend of "transmission LA: AV club" -- the interactive and interdisciplinary festival featuring the work of 16 contemporary artists, musicians, designers, and filmmakers.
mike d. of the beastie boys curated the show, and with the sad passing of MCA last friday, we couldn't stop thinking about how the three boys from brooklyn influenced our culture, pushed the boundaries of video art, and, of course, crossed racial barriers in music and brought the glorious boogie to our booty.
MCA you will be missed. thank you for taking us to intergalactic space and beyond while providing a mad soundtrack along the way. and thank you for being an amazing humanitarian. your benefit concerts in golden gate park made our world brighter.
mike d...thank you for this celebration of art, design, and music. you fulfilled a childhood dream of mine. i've always wanted to walk through of a pinwheel forest.

unfortunately, the show only ran for only 2 weeks and closed yesterday. if you missed it, let's hope it resurfaces in the not so distant future. there are many rooms and features i didn't capture on camera due to time and crowds.
luckily, mr. mike d. hosted this awesome video tour for your viewing pleasure.
