Canal Zone 1978-79
Canal Zone was a 5000 sq ft loft space on Greenwich and Canal Street. It was originally a designated as a setting to rehearse a musical/theatrical/TV production (a TV based Rocky Horror Show) A reality game show where participants would be humiliated and intimidated on TV. The Media becomes a power force like the church who's Pope Father figure is Mind Trap.

This became a reality in 1990 twelve years later when he designed a production space for British Satellite Broadcasting (BSB) for their News Division see New Era the layout was identical approx. the same amount of shooting space. This was swallowed up by Sky. (News International's UK equivilant of Fox News). The title of the production was ZX.

This was being financed by William Waldron who had financed previous projects with the artist. Waldron pulled out after four months into the project. What followed can be seen on 'The Guy' site with the first major Graffitti launching event that promoted the Fab Five and Jean Michel Basquiat and Hip Hop.

The Finale for the Canal Zone was when the Geodesic Dome commissioned by the British Based Festival for the Mind Body and Sprit was consumed by fire along with Basquiat's and Lee Quinones's work which was in the space when it happened. The artist did not witness the fire first hand. The festival's organizers were taking drugs and having financial differences and this led to the torching.

Graham Clark the founder of the festival fled New York. All of this put a stop to making the UK annual festival a fixture in the US
