Wow; Hillman was my lecturer for one of my semester when i was a student at School of Visual Art in NYC in 1997.
I think the impact that i have from him is why a left everything and become a full time flasher… he was a true flash master/motion guy back in the old days (old days 10-13 years ago :P ) ,very quiet person, always working as much as he can’t from his home just cos` he whant to be with his family . Man that’s so sad ……

Really sad. Dead with 51 already? Colon cancer is one of the cancer types that can easily be prevented/healed by regular screening. Here in Germany they have a great campaign going on right now to promote awareness of it.

RIP
