The show opened last Wednesday, and they kind of featured my video projection. It was a big night for me. City Council members spoke, Borough President Ruth Messenger spoke. (not about me, but for the space). Anyway it was good. First time showing video, first time with a projection. It was real exciting, and it nearly killed me to get it done. So much technology. required between devices that don’t speak to each other! -Michael
