  3. Hey Detroit! My alienologist son and I collaborated on a body of work for People’s Biennial which is opening this Friday at MOCAD. We’ve documented a variety of aliens to help educate you on the subject and to introduce their plight to the greater world. As Hank Meloy would say, “Most aliens are very misunderstood.” So come on down if you’re in the neighborhood. We’d love to see you and talk your ear off about outer space.
