Followed by the Action Bureau’s Holiday Party: Saturday, December 10, 2011 10pm- ?, 4219 Whiteside St., 90063THE ACTION BUREAU is pleased to present FRIEND #00, a performance by artist J. Patrick Walsh III, which will take place Saturday, December 10, 2011, 4pm until sunset in the Bronson Caves located inside Los Angeles’ Griffith Park.Friend #00 at The Bad Cave
Friend #00 came to me in a dream; he was wearing a football jersey, with the last name Friend and his number 00. At a distance I could see him walking towards an opening to a cave, or a portal. He drifted quietly through the night. I saw this figure as one of zero reflection, anything he communicated or transmitted was absorbed by the outside world but he desired echo. In my dream I knew he had been searching for a reflection and like myself had started his search in an anechoic chamber known for its testing of cellular communication. This performance continues the search for his reflection from the man made echo less chamber to the man made echo chamber of Bronson Cave, which appeared as the “bat cave” in the classic television show “Batman.” At this location, a series of communication devices will be installed such as sonar and sculpture along with spoken texts that will attempt to echo back at Friend #00.-J.

    The way some people talk about baby longing is how I feel when I read things like this.
