Crossing The Finish Lines
There's such a weird emptiness attached to finishing a sculpture. I thought that embracing failure as a concept would encourage the whole process.
I still feel like I've done nothing to address the issues I care about, and then I start thinking about Thing Theory and wonder why I bother with objects at all. However, if we all start thinking like that, then who will make the art?
A New List for Spring:
The Surreal Bravo.
An Empty, Flattened Bag of Art Tricks
A Sawed-Off Object-Hood
Mountains to Failure, to Rock and Roll, to the Untouchable Art Star, To Drunkenness
To Big Rock Candy Mountain
A Backpack Barnacle
A Dirtbag Purse
A Thousand Zines Yet to Be Made
A Photo Record of All the Amazing To-Do-Lists
A Recollection of All the Unrealized Sculptures
A Bottle of Wine
A Private Dance in the Studio
A Faint Recollection of Dinner
