Well, I had really wanted to get the artists and curator from 65Grand‘s new show Post Scarcity to record a little introductory puff piece, but I just couldn’t get a hold of them. Instead, I got a few of my little sister’s friends to read from a script I wrote.

Post-Scarcity opens tomorrow, June 19th, and will run through to July 25th at 65Grand. I can’t go, so you should!
