Jenny Holzer

I am always a fan when people make words really big and put them on things. I find that it is a very effective technique for making important seeming work, kind of like making a photograph all red or really really big. Of course, it helps if the text is resonant and/or smart in some way. Anyhow, I am really feeling Jenny Holzer' projection work right now. Check out her site for lots, lots more. Good stuff. It kind of reminds me of Barbara Kruger, but you know, not really annoying and lame. She bugs me, Old Krugie. I never understood what all the fuss was about her.
