This post is rented out to advertise Benjamin Nome's: Benjamin Nome

along with the image he emailed us, the recent RISD graduate attached the following message:

"Ben Noam’s project extends beyond the gallery’s walls. His contribution to the show is documentation of a larger project in which Noam placed signs around RISD’s campus with the words “BEN NOAM IS” printed on them. These unfinished documents, mimicking the format of Facebook status updates, invited outside participation in the style of bathroom wall graffiti, with varied results. In this piece, Noam also posts his Facebook username and password, opening up his virtual identity for mass use.  An experiment in ubiquity and anonymity, Noam’s piece is unfinished, open for infinite viewer participation." - Myspace Press Release
