Reality 30 / the Angeldemonfish
Reality 30 / the Angeldemonfish. Here’s an expert tattooing job being made of my Angeldemonfish design (still happily swimming along the right arm here), by artist Samantha Peterson in her Chelsea apartment / tattoo parlour. On view here is some long-suffering bag-schlepping by Kim, plus great videoing by Mal—who was probably also responsible for the choice of music playing on Samantha’s CD-player, namely the camp classic album Fans by Malcolm McLaren.
That dim, grungy, narrow old stairwell, beyond a fragrantly cramped street-level doorway with a small dirty panel of intercom buzzers on the wall, is just the kind of entrance behind which I and many others lived—pure, glorious New York City. (2’53”)
