Spring, Summer 2008, Slideshow
If yesterday was “spend,” today is “save.” Economize money, energy, space, time, water, food, thoughts. If I’m not watching images move, or moving images, then by default I’m roaming. A to B, equals New York to Paris. At a discreet global position, vaguely sitting in cafes for hours chatting, discussing, debating. Cartesians: “wearing the clock” not “watching the clock.” Spending vagabond days, writing, editing, reading, but do we, with one glance, have enough information to spark a sequence of ideas, feelings, inspiration?
