Poser at Figment

(2013)

Livestream and performance for the launch of the Warhol Museum's Figment
in collaboration with Angela Blake

On August 6th, 2013 – the anniversary of Warhol’s birth – The Andy Warhol Museum launched a new project in collaboration with Earthcam called Figment, A 24/7 live camera of Andy Warhol’s grave. The project’s title references a quote from Warhol:

I never understood why when you died, you didn’t just vanish, and everything could just keep going on the way it was only you just wouldn’t be there. I always thought I’d like my own tombstone to be blank. No epitaph and no name.

Well, actually, I’d like it to say “figment.”
