You should go to Storm King. It's an hour outside of Manhattan by car. Just tell me when you want to go, I'll drive. I will sit and stare at Maya Lin's Wavefield while you tour the place. Sitting and staring at those undulating hills makes me so happy.

- The view of a gallerist's whale tail.
- The experience of taking a piss next to a ambivalent cleaning woman while she was tidying up the men's room.

This work from Ivan Navarro was my favorite at the Armory show. It's a 2011 piece titled "eco 1 (cherry)". Materials listed in the work are neon light, bass drum, mirror, one-way mirror and electric energy.
I like words that have two sides, one very ambiguous and one very objective. it’s interesting to get better in the language and try to understand the poetic side of a word. sometimes you get completely lost in the word you’re using.

There's something very angry about this figure's face. There's also something tugging on my sympathy. It's this figure's figure, I think, all skinny and broken up.

A few weeks ago I'd read about an Army veteran and photographer who'd been putting up signage from the NYPD that, while fake, was ominous and yet highly plausible. Whoever is putting these up is brilliant. The "Authorized Drone Strike Zone 8am-8pm" shown here is even more hilarious and scarier.

"You look a little like Phil Collins," the 20-something girl behind the table said. "The blue eyes..."
I don't doubt that being raised on prog rock, listening to years of prog rock, has shaped me. I thought it was more internalized, more hidden, but perhaps it extends to my appearance as well. I wouldn't disagree that Phil and I both share the blessing of having a perfectly spherical head.
