Last August, he tweeted his parents’ unusual love story — with photos — on the first anniversary of his father’s death. In a series of blurbs 140 characters or less, he tells it better than I ever could:

“The Deconstructive Impulse: Women Artists Reconfigure the Signs of Power, 1973-1991” - Contemporary Arts Museum Houston on view through April 15th

The exhibition assembles a group of women who were making art in the 1970s and 1980s and organizes their work around certain shared interests in melodrama, the power of the stereotype, consumption and commodity culture, domestic life, motherhood and sexuality and visual pleasure.”

The title, Daisy Bell, refers to a particular moment in the history of science and culture: 1962, Bell Labs used the IBM 704 computer to voice synthesize the popular 19th-century English song of the same name. The song was also used in the climactic scene of the film 2001: A Space Odyssey in which the supercomputer HAL 9000 begins to sing daisy daisy as his consciousness is degraded.
The Daisy Bell series is comprised of a variety of poisonous flowers that appear to cascade down the gallery walls.
