Your Condensation (2015)
_DSC7905“I think the languages of arts and culture can really achieve something here…and these are necessary to inspire positive action in response to the challenges, environmental and otherwise, that we, the citizens of the world, are confronted with today.”

“What seems to be one of the main successes of the Scandinavian model is that it has made people believe that their investment in and commitment to society matters. I think one of the greatest challenges today is indifference…”

Olafur Eliasson

  1. Contemp. art is a search, isn’t it? For some reason to be making art in the first place, since it fills no pressing, obvious, historic need. That was my impression, looking at this work. It was as sociological as it was artistic. Meaning by that that place in the ether where one goes from pure inspiration. xx’s, v.

  2. Florence! Once again another wow. Plus I can be on the kitchen table with Kitty in lap and never leave the country :))
