Who is Landron?

In his epic, multi-media installation The Shattering of Time, conceptual artist Landron assaulted all bourgeois concepts and institutions.

When asked about Christmas and holidays in general, Landron replied with what he calls one of his "affirming contradictions".

"Like time itself, holidays are a social construct," Landron said. "To attack Christmas gives credence to its very existence and its associated myths. To ignore it allows it to fester and burgeon into something greater and more powerful. To embrace it as an abstraction puts it into the proper context of fable and folly while eating samosas and sipping peppermint-coconut chai."

Landron was referenced by Bryce Digdug earlier today. Further sightings of Landron will likely appear here.

The train set reminds me of the work of Chris Burden whose frightening globe covered with train tracks is in the Temporary Contemporary in L.A.

Loved the Amish documentary. The snap of the soft-spoken Amish gentlemen receiving the Underwriters Labs certificate brought tears to my eyes.
