Inspiring speech at Madison Square Garden on May 14, 2015.

Here are highlights and starting points that I think you’ll find interesting in this uTube video:

10:00 – immeasurables, the most important things in life.

11:10 – What we do as artist is to search, look and recognize.

13:00 – You set your own standard of excellence.

18:30 – Don’t take jobs that are available. Create other (new) ones!

19:40 – Democracy was destroyed by money – profit vs. value.

21:19 – Depression is your blessing. Honor these moments!

22:20 – Wealthy are fucking up the universe!

23:40 – Be a human water treatment plant. Inhale the poison, transform it and offer it back.

25:00 – Now comes the hard part.

25:48 – The seven Buddhist factors of enlightenment:

1. Mindfulness
2. Investigation – ask good questions
3. Keep your energy up
4. Keep your joy
5. Find your ease
6. Concentrate
7. Equanimity – give thanks for those who hate you

100 World Sculptures Starts in San Diego

Cats: Designing the World

Fri - 30 Apr 2010 - 06:32 PM

Congratulations to Ron Miriello, Dii Advisory Board member and head of Miriello Grafico, for launching 50 of 100 World Sculptures at Jett Gallery in Little Italy.

Think string theory and eleven parallel universes that scientists are tuning in to.

Envision avatars the way James Cameron’s 2009 movie of the same name entices audiences everywhere to leap off of cliffs in a fantastical virtual world we experienced behind 3-D glasses.

Now check out Ron’s world, multiplied 100 times, starting with an incredible labor intensive 50 sculptures created in large part from re-purposed materials. Pick your earthly delight by visiting and feed back your favorite encounter here.

Drew Barrymore launched her career befriending another worldly extra-terrestrial with her enduring words, “ET phone home” You too can text our homepage blog your encounter!

Some cities embrace cow sculptures, others hearts like San Francisco.

San Diego is now home to many worlds!

Thank you, Ron, for inspiring us and designing these exciting New World views.
