Hi again: FYI, I linked my www.spacescapes.com Hot News page to your
lastplace.com page 185. I know it's been some time coming but I was busy
with my new printer and Power Mac and orders. Thanks again. Kind regards,
Cecil Herring

Yeah. I made a Processional Crucifix for St. Charles Cathedral in Orlando
on a commission. Altar boy smashed it, would you believe? I made another,
welded it, really a gorgeous thing, but it was a crucified Christ and the
Orlando Bishop nixed it saying we don't allow crucified Christ in our
Litany! I said it's crucified or nothing, thinking of that beautiful silver
Christ the Pope carries around...So I said take it or leave it! They took
it since the grand opening was coming.
Well, I went to the opening, unveiling or the new rebuild
contemporary altar with all my pieces of reliquary, candelabra, Tabernackle
Cover. I was shocked to see the arms had been taken to some errant welder,
heated and moved into the Risen position!
Is that a wild story. So we belong in Space, nearer to God for sure.
Only problem, I can't seem to get any attention for even my space
art. I go over there to the Cape and they are all hohum, just don't seem to
care about much since there is a vast pecking order. Even poor Story
Musgrave is outside the loop and that poor old John Glenn is training at 78
to go up.
I am planning a new assault on the Moon since I think the next push
will be there. There are firms working on the commercialization of space
right in Titusville.
I will call some people and see about it. A CD like that one
Charley did of the global children's signatures that went on Cassini. A CD
with Art for Space Colonies! Yeah. Cecil

DEAR R2001 MEMBERSHIP: DO PLEASE VISIT THIS ARTIST'S WEBSITE AND BECOME
INSPIRED LIKE I AM AND REASSURED AS TO THE MISSION OF R2001 THAT YOU
JOINED, NOT FOREMOST FOR PERSONAL GAIN BUT TO COMMITMENT TO THE MISSION.

> Sincerely,

YOU ARE A MIRACLE IN MY LIFE! YOU HAVE FOUND A WINNER FOR WEBMUSEUM
CYBERCOLONY. SHE'S IN AILING HEALTH, ALONE WITH JUST HER COMPUTER ART.
CAN WE BOTH LIFT HER SPIRITS AND JOIN US IN HER LATEST YEARS IN THE
REVOLUTION TO MAKE NEW ART VIA THE WEB, HER NEW PAINTBRUSH?

PLEASE CONTACT HER IN BEHALF OF ME, WEBMUSEUM CYBERCOLONY AND OFFER HER
A SOLO EXHIBITION IN AT THE RAVE WEBMUSEUM OR PYGOYA MUSEUM FOR 1999.
SORRY, ALL OF 1998 IS BOOKED!!!!!!! TELL HER THAT.

ANYWAY THIS GIVES HER ALL THE TIME TO REVIEW WEBMUSEUM CYBERCOLONY,
PREPARE FOR HER SHOW, MAKE WHAT SHE WANTS TO BECOME PART OF THE
PERMANENT COLLECTION OF THE RAVE WEBMUSEUM. FINDING HER AND HER COMPUTER
ART IS LIKE DISCOVERING THE TITANIC. AN 80 YEAR OLD WORKING IN DIGITAL
ART!!

TRUE TO THE QUALITY OF THE WORK (I'M NOT SAYING THEIR BAD) THE SPIRIT OF
THE SOUL COMES THROUGH AS SHE DEALS WITH HER STEADY PHYSICAL LOSSES AT
THIS POINT IN HER LONG LIFE. HER WORK AND CREATIVE SPIRIT NEEDS TO BE
DOCUMENTED. WOULD A PHYSICAL MUSEUM DO IT? HELL NO. VIRTUAL MUSEUM TO
THE RESCUE. ACTUALLY HER WORK IS INVALUABLE AS AN EXAMPLE TO THE
QUESTION AS TO WHETHER DIGITAL ART IS GOOD OR EVEN ART AND ALSO IS
ANOTHER SPLENDID EXAMPLE OF HOW R2001 SERVICES TO SUPPORT THE HUMAN
CREATIVE SPIRIT ABOVE ALL OTHER MOTIVES.

Sincerely,

PYGOYA

Gerald;
I will need one more image. It should be a file of the artwork reviewed in
your article/tiff Mac formatted. Please, very soon...
By the way I think our editor gets your idea and he likes it. We'll have a
future...
I'm curently so clutter with my deadlines don't have a time to evaluate the
whole matter, but give me a week and we'll talk. OK.
-many thanks, Yola.

Darling Rodney, I haven't even finished reading your e-mail yet yet I am
writing re the first paragraph. Bless you for being so wonderfully catholic
(little c) and artistic and musical and having all these ideas! As they
say, you are way cool.
I did want to contact the Russians at the Space Station! of all
things. I'll bet THEY would go for it if they thought they would get a
piece of the action! They are desperate for $$$. Last month they were
selling pieces of their space gear!
Will try. I have wanted to do that for 25 years when I contacted
Buckminster Fuller for an idea for space buildings out of a special
sprayable vinyl. Even got a reply from Bucky, the great geodesic dome
designer. Used Morton Subotnik's moog music "Silver Apples for the Moon"
for a New York Show that had sequential lighting.
I had the idea space people would need ART. "Beam me up Scotty"
takes on new meaning! Eh? I thought that before and now it's coming true
since we are ALL getting that idea! Right. Do you mean a virtual art show
or how do we do it?
I think we should contact someone outside of NASA though as they
are all so square, scared and quite narrow these days with Director Dan
Golden at the helm.
I say try Barry Diller -QVC home selling channel or Rupert Murdoch,
someone rather non-conformist.
I'll think and you will smell wood all the way to Hawaii!
Will read the rest of your letter. Oh yes, I'll join 2001. Got my
new logo on my website up and running and am all primed for new work. Warm
regards, Cecil


DEAREST DARLING CECIL,

On behalf of the distinguished R2001 permit me to welcome you into our
group of futuristic Web artists! Gerald! Aleksi! Seigi!
Don't are have somebody vote her out of the queue!!

I love your thoughts and may be communicating with telepathically like
you suggested we were doing months ago before we delinked for each's
hectic life's demands.

I say GIVE IT TO THE RUSSIANS!

And, er, how much for that space gear:)? really.
I'm a collector of all kinds of junk. Ask my other half who's not
winning the battle throwing stuff out behind my back to find the kids!

R2001: we need a Russian in the ring!!!! With influence.
or, Cecil, lead the way (or some of the other names you mentioned).

C'mon, if the Russians are in such a situation, why should we pay a
ticket to get our art onboard. Get invited. Let them know how us Yankees
think in this new age of art on the e-frontier.

As a new member of r2001 (don't for get to do a rigamarole of officially
get into the ring, you know, the code fragment stuff) you would have a
resource of 20+ countries of artists to assist you and Russian (or some
rich maverick sponsor who wants a piece of the glory) in r2001 "from day
1"

Cecil, you've waited 25+ years to find me and r2001 to start your
departure to your destiny.

Beam us up to Sparky!

Pygoya

My dear Cecil,
I propose, as busy as we both are with all the other arenas of our
respective life, that we initiate our own RING for Space Directed Art.
We don't have to create an actual web ring via webring.org. Later if we
get to lst base I have tech support that can do this for a fee. I just
think with both of us promoting and brainstorming together, each small
step forward can ultimately become THE big one step for mankind's arts.

Hey if I bundled my crucifix as a minimal triangle or star my God would
know, through my direct prayer email, that it's his crucifix. I'd
conceal the cross within my abstract disposition.

At my website I have started a Art for Space directory to archive our
heroic beginning to stage art in space. Please tell me how to get this
book on Space Art. Also forward me a synopsis of your life work in space
art attempts and abortions. For the online archives. I am a historian by
nature and need to learn of your efforts to better prepare myself for
this mission with you.

Your Navigator (4.0),
Rodney, Artonaut
