on a Monday

I'm facing an imagination deficit; hence, I thought P.S.1 would cure me. No cure yet but museums make me happy, it's all about the sensory overload. The visuals, audio, and interaction made it a cathartic experience, as well as being in Jose's company who makes everything even more amazing.

Olafur Eliasson's installation on the elevator.

Eliasson's huge rotating mirror on the ceiling, and we took our time!

Børre Sæthre's ethereal installation.

Sæthre's unicorn. When you walk by the mirror, it creates an optical illusion...it is visually fascinating. I hope I had a video....fuck....I hope I could have the unicorn in my apartment.
Sorry Damien Hirst but the unicorn beats your decaying shark any day....

Leaondro Erlich's Swimming Pool.

Tom's number. I found it on the floor at Robert Boyd's Conspiracy Countdown video installation neatly folded. I texted him to satisfy my curiosity and ask him if he had left it on purpose. He texted me back saying he's never been to P.S.1.
I find it incredibly interesting where some things just end up.

After P.S.1 I headed over to Park Slope in Brooklyn just to walk around. How long until it gets completely Manhattanized?......Save Brooklyn's Industrial Heritage!

Cremaster Cycle

Matthew Barney's Cremaster cycle "is without parallel in contemporary culture - an odyssey of pyscho-sexual drive and desire, spanning five films set in different geographical locations, from a stadium in his home town of Boise, Idaho, to an opera house in Budapest. Dense, compacted and multi-layered, the cycle reaches back to the mythology, biology and geology of creation and forward into a world of modified genetics and mutating identity. Our culture attempts to articulate such changes, but struggles to keep pace with the speed of development". - Tate Magazine
