wow, i like it!  your love for daniel and his music shows through.  i'm honored to be part of the exhibit.  wish i could see it in person!  and i'd like to hear the tape you made of edited conversation.  maybe you should take this show on the road someday?

Yea I'm hoping to build this one up on the place where Daniel is playing in The Netherlands, that would be great.

Thanks everybody! And thanks everybody who helped me.

And Henry Long... are you still interested in trading my collected publications for a book of yours Smiley.

Hello everybody,

A while ago I asked, among others, a few people here for a memory about Daniel, for my graduation project on my art academy. Well, I graduated! And of course I want to show you people what happened and how it looks like Smiley.

Why: I heard about Daniel Johnston a while ago from a friend of mine. After the interesting story I started to look for his story and music/art. And I saw that he couldn't remember his own songs (lyrics) anymore. Considering the fact that I was really impressed by Daniels art and music, I felt I had to do something about it.

The idea. To create an installation that represents Daniels memory so I could fill it:

It's a wall with about 100 wooden barges (? barge?) on it. All these ought to be filled during the process and exhibition.

To keep Daniels memory solid and not lost again, I thought it would be a good idea to create a collective memory. I did this by designing publications about the memories people sent me. People could send these publications to themselves on the exhibition, so they were Daniels collective memory:

On the last picture you also see a collected biography of Daniel Johnston. I created that biography by a text written by myself about Daniel Johnston and identity (and Jaques Lacan). And I combined that with a booklet with texts from this forum. So his biography is written by people who like Daniel and some who know him.

And further I designed for 4 memories a specific thing.

For John Foster:
2 toys with speeding motorcycle coming out of them. His memory was about his daughter who remembered speeding motorcycle and really liked it. In this way people had to pick up the toys/song and press it to their ears. Having the song soft and close.

For Rastaman on this board:
A pile of paper to write messages to Daniel which were placed on the wall. He remembered Daniel drawing on a pad of typing paper for a lot of people on aconcert. In this way people do the same for him, they give him a memory, or something to remember them. later on I will bundle these messages and I am hoping to give this to Daniel when he comes to the Netherlands in octobre. (I took this memory of this board).

For Bill Anderson:
A soundscape where I cut out all the conversations out of Daniels tapes and CD's and melted them together to about 25 minutes of conversations, laughing, laurie etc. Because he remembered recording a song with Daniel (etiquette), and he really liked the spontaenity. I thought that was best expressed by al these conversations.

For Melle from John Dear Mowing Club:
Melle remembered driving together with Daniel in a van. And he thought, man I can kidnap him now and do some gigs in Germany. Of course he didn't do that, but I made a tour poster for them.

I only have a good picture of that now.

So... and now I am going on vacation Smiley, so I will react on your reactions in a week

Thanks for the replies! And yet another very nice story Gina (especially with the pictures too!). But I am hoping to get 9 memories from 9 different people (already have 8!). So I think I keep looking for 1 other one! It must have been great indeed to look for stuf for Daniels new house with Daniel! Thanks anyway!

Here is a little update. The book is going well, I am just looking for something extra that makes it special. And in addition to the book I am thinking about making 9 short abstract movies about the 9 memories. This because of his interest in movies and a different way to show a moving/singing/multimedia man. I am still looking for 1 or 2 memories and waiting on some Smiley. But that's not going to be a problem.

Oh and if Rastaman is reading, I hope it's okay if I use your story from another topic. And maybe you can mail me your real name so I can put that under the story.
