Our pal Jen Bekman recently spoke at the PSFK San Francisco 2008 Conference on the topic of art and technology.
I'm really happy Jen's been able to break into the very trad art world and shake things up with her online gallery shop, 20x200. For her presentation, Jen recounts her history working in Bay Area tech to selling art today.

The Ups & Downs
Marcus Civin & Candice Lin Thursday, October 23 from 7 to 10 pm
Friday, October 24 from 10pm to late
The Ups & Downs is an installation series. The show goes up, the show goes down. Opening party on Thursday night and closing party the next night, on Friday. No time for exhibitions. Low impact, ephemeral and immersive art. People with lots of People. The market. It’s a party. Time for the underground. It’s a ball. It’s for The People. This has been made for you. Do I know you? The show must go on. Installed and De-installed. Up. Down. Now what? Now then…
The Ups & Downs:
Marcus Civin & Candice Lin
When the wind got too rough, and the ship was pitching, sailors took an axe to the mast, so the lighting wouldn’t catch. We were at the top, in the crow’s nest, tangled in the nets and in the tatters of the sails. When it was all over, we climbed out and found we had washed upon a beach of graphite sand. Shipwreck! Enormous Crow’s Nest built to reach the ceiling, stuck in and consuming the underground space at Betalevel.
Heidi and Wayne treated us to Pizzeria Delfina, a Mission-neighborhood pizzeria. I wasn't quite sure what to expect but seeing as we were going with two of our favorite foodies, I wasn't too worried. The wait was kind of long but well worth it. We gobbled up three pizzas in what seemed like five minutes. This place is an instant fave and we'll definitely visit again the next time we're in town. Thanks for dinner, Team SB!
