Linkins Lake Hike in Aspen, Colorado – One of Christy Ferer’s Favorite Places to Visit

For the perfect summer activity to experience the many perks of the great outdoors, all you have to do is grab your hiking boots, maybe pack a light lunch, and don’t forget that camera to document the breathtaking beauty of the Linkins Lake Trail.  Only a short drive outside of Aspen, Colorado lies Independent Pass, home to many trail-heads, including the Linkins Lake Hike.  With the many different difficulty levels, there is an experience for virtually everyone, but Linkins Lake is one hike in particular you should make note of.

Vidicom CEO Christy Ferer happens to be extremely lucky, in that when she went on the hike, the wildflowers were in full bloom.  Usually, they conceal their beauty until late July through late August, but they made an exception this year.  (Christy likes to think that the flowers bloomed for her!)

Raves in Venice 2013

ImageCindy Sherman rocks as part of the Venice Bienale’s where she curates rooms of her vision behind her legendary art.

Vidicom CEO Christy Ferer’s fave: all the photo albums she has collected from flea markets over 30years including one of transvestites living together in the 50”s.

But artist Rudolf Stingel wasn’t bad either. For the first time, the entire Palazzo Grassi sported carpeting based on an oriental rug covering the entire surface of the walls and floors… and we are talking about 30,000 square feet between all three floors of all these surfaces.

The exhibition is centered on the relationship between abstraction and figuration, observing how the constant fluidity between these two polarities characterizes the artist’s poetics. On the walls and floors which are really the artists interpretation of what a Persian carpet looks like, Stingel mixes ensemble of “photo-realistic” works, portraits of friends self-portraits taken at different stages of Stingel’s life, alpine landscapes or depictions of ancient religious sculptures.

The whole project was a mega undertaking…  Christy is wondering what they are going to do with the all the carpet covering those thousands of square feet of walls and floor?

Biennale de Venezia – Christy Ferer Travels to Venice

06-03_fullVidicom’s CEO Christy Ferer’s bags are packed, my ticket’s lined up, and I’m waiting for the 28th to fly off to Venice for this year’s Biennale de Venezia, a yearly art celebration.

I’m especially excited to visit this year to visit my good friend Cindy Sherman’s curatorial project — a show within the show, made up of over two hundred works by more than thirty artists. Dolls, puppets, mannequins, and idols cohabit with photos, paintings, sculptures, religious insignia, and drawings by prison inmates, which together compose an anatomical theater in which to contemplate the role of images in the representation and perception of the self.

Is anyone else headed to Venice? Hope to see you there!
