more news about Chase Burning...

I just found out that a great piece about the whole incident and placing it in a greater context just came out on Southern California public radio. It's so funny, I did so much media stuff that first week I forgot about this one until it came out today and I heard about it from a friend on facebook! It's Krissy Clark with the California Report reporting on the Madeleine Brand Show.

I got a mention at the start of the new episode of the Keiser Report! Enjoy that and then watch the rest of the show...



I'm also including a bunch of links to other online articles...

Hey Alex. I am Dadara, an artist fro Amsterdam. In times when governments spend billions on banks, but don't want to spend money on art anymore, I started my own bank - the Exchanghibition Bank. A few weeks ago the bank crossed the Ocean and was part of the Burning Man festival. Then someone mailed me the link to your burning bank painting and that inspired me to a blog post, which I wanted to share with you. Here it is:

Feel free to paint my bank on fire haha. Cheers!
