KNIFEANDFORK MOCA - Golf + Donuts- 03.06.09

golfmain.jpg Just RFID mini-golfed behind the scenes of MOCA… and ate donuts. Rumor has it that for every ball that went into a hole a donut hole was made… and when your RFID foamy golf ball went into a hole you also got a call on your cell with audio rambling and randomness… quickly got the feeling that far more people showed up than anticipated, or this was a project that wasn’t set up to scale well, although there were a LOT of security throughout… and mix crazy mini golf course + alcohol + quite a few pushy/competitive hipsters + a sneak peek at a side of MOCA you never see + not nearly enough space for all these people to be wandering through, let alone trying to golf through… and yea. Wow. It was pretty crazy… It’s hard to explain with words really, but i took a bunch of pics for you to take a peek at the world behind MOCA! (And unfortunately there’s one pic plain clothes security made me delete… it was a fun look at all the security screens of the museum though!)

This was part of First Thursdays at MOCA ~ “KNIFEANDFORK, founded by Brian House and Sue Huang, presents three new works for ENGAGEMENT PARTY, MOCA’s series of interventions by local artist collectives” ~ and this was the first! Emptiness is Form (Golf and Donuts) - Voice interventions by Nathan Phillips, Donuts by Deanna Moody of Dee’s Bakery and Donuts, DJ set by Wendy Yao, Blogging by Guthrie Lonergan…

See the pics on the next page for the full effect!

We lined up for a while… signed in… gave them our cell phone numbers which were coded into our balls… then off to decorate them and get putters…

To start you off ~ here’s what’s going on… kind of the score card/info card… those rules, were followed for about 5 minutes before total chaos ensued…

This looks odd… but as you embark on the course… it just gets crazier…

My ball… at home… dissected… and here’s the RFID! (When you get the ball into the hole, your phone rings and madness coos into your ear… it was bizarre)

Before we wandered to the tee… down to the plaza for DONUTS!!! Apparently everytime a ball went in a hole a donut was made… but we’re skeptical, there was a frenzied panic for donuts constantly!

And it was one guy… rolling out the dough… frying it… and tossing it into the sugary goodness…

Where they were promptly snatched and devoured.
