Atom on the Wall

Atom on the Wall

Please come out to the My Space on 7th opening at Touchstone Gallery this Friday, 11 July! I am showing six photos of my friend Atom Shock, with whom I entered a collaboration about a year and a half ago.

The idea was born at the opening night of Artomatic 2007, when Atom and Jen came out to the show. Atom resembled Fidel Castro at the time, and we started talking, and a few beard cycles later, we have enough for a show.

By the way, Atom and Jen started a blog about Atom’s pursuit for bearded glory in Alaska with Beard Team USA. For more information about our collaboration, how we got started, and where he’s growing, er, going next, check it out here.

The World Beard and Moustache Championship returns to the USA for the second time in its history. The competition will be held in Anchorage, Alaska on May 23rd, 2009. This just so happens to be Shock’s birthday. Destiny? You bet your hairy chin it is!

Beard Team USA wants to pose a serious threat to the always dominant Germans, and Shock wants to aid the cause….but he needs your help. Will you sponsor him and his dream of facial hair domination? Any amount you donate will be used to get him to the competition. He will acknowledge his sponsors at the championship to show his thanks.
