#70 – Tuesday July 17th
I just start putting things together, connecting points, drawing lines, being pulled along through the curiosity of where it might end. This week began with my taking pictures of Molly Teardrop’s ball.
A long overdue visit to the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art (SMoCA), and spending time in one of my favorite environmental art pieces, James Turrell’s elliptical skyspace, Knight Rise. The skyspace is a vaulted room with an elliptical hole in the ceiling opening up to the sky. There’s an integrated bench around the circumference, for sitting drenched in light, the sky reaching down, as day passes by.
The annular eclipse, Ring of Fire, last seen in the US in 1994, next in 2023. The Transit of Venus, which won’t come our way again until 2117.
Yayoi Kusama’s exhibition at the Whitney Museum of Art and the iconic photographer of everything fashion, Bill Cunningham’s “On The Street” video, SPOT ON, for NYTimes.com.
Contemporary anonymous Tantric paintings from Rajasthan, India.
A week beginning with taking pictures of a ball. From a dog’s toy to the cosmos, into obsession, the intersection of art and fashion, the mystic, and a future where I don’t exist. All in all a very good week.
Thanks for reading.
