Went to Sharon Harris's opening last night, and a warm event it was, which wasn't surprising. What did surprise me was how "shaped" the show, a selection of her Toronto "I love you" graffiti photographs, was. I've always thought that one of the most interesting features of Harris's I Love You project, which seems to be organized simply as a catalogue of the uses of the words "I love you" in contemporary culture with various artistic projects going off in all directions, is its wide scope and the consequent impossibility of seeing its outlines (entirely appropriate given the range of uses of the three words at its heart). The Dooney's show, however, has a tight conceptual focus, with a map of the graffiti occurrences at its centre. Many of the photographs are stunning, too. You should check it out if you haven't already.

Also had a nice chat with Jay about the temptation to willingly box oneself in style-wise. Met Myna Wallin, who's a nice person. And talked to Maggie about personality tests.
