It was there that I made the first piece I was proud of, a portrait of Laurie Anderson. Hell, I wouldn't know who she was or half the music I've grown to love over the years without him in my life sending tapes my way. Who else was going to send me a mix tape of Klaus Nomi, Meredith Monk, and too many others to name?
I have always been drawn to Tim's work. I find a humor and intelligence in it that plays thoughtful observation against witty comparisons. His work has a sense of space and of multiple realities overlapping and intersecting each other.
