  Stewoo.net: Beck > Gallery > Beck & Al Hansen: Playing With Matches
Before Al's premature death in 1995, he espoused a conceptual framework for a diverse range of experimental activities to be labelled "art," including the vitality of the body, its languaging and its documentation.
Al fashioned or arranged junk and garbage into innumerable artworks and a limited number of "signature" figures: wave forms and stark, model towers out of burnt matches and glue, robots, an endless stream of Hershey bar wrapper Goddess Venuses, and other Venuses made entirely of cigarette butts and glue.
Beck and Al Hansen's respective artwork remains true to the feeling that nothing is beneath their notice, or, as Henry Martin has remarked about Fluxus artists, just about everything is worth being looked at or listened to or toyed with.

 The Brooklyn Rail - May 2006 - Al Hansen
Hansen’s oeuvre is simultaneously captivating and mysterious, a bit rough and ironic, blending the visual and literary arts.
Don’t get me wrong: Al Hansen is a “naïve-educated” artist who learned from the best—such as Kurt Schwitters—and was also was inspired by the found objects and day-old newspapers he recycled from the trash heap.
Hansen’s live performances, sometimes aided by inebriation or self-induced trance, were recently recreated at the Andrea Rosen Gallery during an event organized by daughter Bibbe Hansen entitled “3rd Rail Revisited,” named for the Third Rail Gallery of Current Art, founded by Hansen in Brooklyn.

 New Hansen et al. study: Earth’s temperature within 1 degree C of highest in past million years (posting from ...
The study, led by James Hansen of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, N.Y., along with scientists from other organizations concludes that, because of a rapid warming trend over the past 30 years, the Earth is now reaching and passing through the warmest levels in the current interglacial period, which has lasted nearly 12,000 years.
According to Hansen, “That means that further global warming of 1 degree Celsius defines a critical level.
That migration rate is not fast enough to keep up with the current rate of movement of a given temperature zone, which has reached about 40 kilometers (about 25 miles) per decade in the period 1975 to 2005.
