artistic appreciation: miranda july!

i went to the venice biennale in 2009 and (hands down) one of my favorite installations was by american artist miranda july. ms. july (left, in the above photo) seems to both challenge and engage her audience, often in ways that make viewers/participants feel uncomfortable...or ways that make people laugh. to me, her interactive piece in venice was a celebration of humanity...the ups/downs and good/bad and the hidden/exposed. here are a few of my favorites from her "eleven heavy things":

i also enjoyed her short stories as well!
