I had a great time with the ever-affable excavator of exit signs, Bob Seng, in his Williamsburg studio on a recent afternoon, at which time he showed me a couple walls brimming with more or less new pieces while we chatted about egresses, extremes, earthquakes and eventualities. We also talked about lettuce. And peaches. And about some group shows he’d soon be in, including one at Centotto.
I also had the good fortune to get a glimpse at some truly excellent new sculptural pieces by Bob’s better half—and frequent collaborator on sometimes performative video and installation pieces—Lisa Hein. In a couple words, her new works are elegant and fresh. In a couple more words, they’re mysterious and masterful. In eight more words, they’re very much worth keeping an eye out for. Since they’re not pictured here, you’ll have to do just that.
Anyway, here are a few images of Bob, his studio and his work. To see more, visit his website.

I love the new format for your excellent and insightful interviews.
And how could I not like this?
It’s a win/win for us all.
