What the heck have I been doing?
This and that, lately, including a couple of short pieces on Kai Chan at the Textile Museum, Robert Mapplethorpe at Olga Korper, Bill Burns at MKG127, and the excellent It Is What It Is at the National Gallery, for which I will not apologize for overtly gushing.
Right this very second, I'm using Via Rail's handy on-board Wifi to post this, on my way to Detroit to meet up with Scott Hocking -- the guy who made the above installation, in Detroit's decades-since-destroyed Packard factory -- to see what he does with the latter-day equivalent of Roman ruins: A fallen empire, with seeds sprouting in the undergrowth. Should be fun ...
