A brilliant use of the copy machine. Virgil Widrichs "Copy Shop", a short film about a man who copies himself until he fills up the entire world. The film won 35 international awards, got an Oscar-nomination and was shown on over 200 festivals and in many cinemas and TV channels worldwide.

In 1986 an opportunity to put together an installation show in a former motel’s five rooms ended up in my lap. I had not worked in the entertainment installation format often but decided to “give” my rooms to four other artists under the theme Wild Women.
The premise of the theme was to pick an aspect of the female psyche expressing itself when going wild, meaning free from restraint. What happens?
Each woman (Anna Banana, Donna Mae Shaver, Doris Boris Berman, and Susan K) chose a different aspect that included sexual wildness, spiritual practice, back to the earth connection, political activist, and emotional purge. Her room was to reflect her chosen theme and the artist had to interact with the installation in some way on opening night. Each of the artists had a wild side to their personalities making them a good mix.
But the news I want to get to is something I learned this week. Two of the women died who were in that show, caught by cancer. That’s a high percentage. Donna Mae Shaver (Montgomery) January 9, 2010 and Doris Boris Berman May 10, 2015. To learn of two in one week rocked my world a bit.
