Hovering between this year and the next
one eye open, one eye closed
murmuration a halo of movement and sound surrounding
The Sae half of our collaboration is going to her other home in Japan for a visit and will send us photos from there beginning next week on the third of January. We look forward to starting the new year with you.
Yesterday both Sae and I discovered the evidence of mouse quite independent of each other,
in places close to where we work, behind the computer and the toaster oven and coffee maker at home.
So, I wondered what that might be pointing at. Every creature has a very particular perspective
based on their size, physical body, the way they move in their environment.
The mouse sees things close up but does not have much of an overview.
It's the details that I seem to have been overlooking of late and not looking behind what is most obvious.
Any reminder to challenge our habitual way of looking is good.
We have changed the exhibit in the collage and ascending galleries to respond to the title 'higher up and further in'.
The E.J. Gold gallery continues to show Daniel Hanequand's 'a human landscape'
and all of his work from previous shows can be viewed in video format in the Gold library.
Daniel Hanequand's original drawings can be seen at the gallery and purchased from the artist's estate.
Sometimes being sick is like standing still, spinning in place
wondering when can I get off this not so merry go'round.
When we're sick it's hard to remember what it feels like to be well
and when we are well it's hard to remember (thank goodness) being sick.
Please get well Miss Sae.
It's much more fun doing the blog with you.
Today Sae and I finished our first book, a documentation of the exhibition which
is appearing now at gallery arcturus and seen in part in the photo above entitled,-
'w h a t i s n e c e s s i t y ?' . Christmas is a time when scarcity and excess
are glaring and so it seems an appropriate time to consider 'what is necessity' not as
an expression of poverty but as a recognition of how little is needed to give us a sense
of fullness and satisfaction.
