Former New York art student Ursula Ruedenberg says that in 1995, the pair enticed a group of recent art-school grads to his Zorro ranch by promising he’d commission one of them to make works for a new mansion.
He then hosted a dinner party, and guests played a game where they closed their eyes and reached into a bag of unknown objects. “One was what felt like pockets of jelly; it turned out to be falsies, like you put in your bra,” Ruedenberg told the mag. “Then they demanded that we put them on.”
Ruedenberg said she felt shunned for not playing along, saying, “I knew the commission was out the window at that very moment … I could see it was a question of ‘how far will they go? Does this person have boundaries?’”
