a while ago i discovered this beautiful tumblr blog about the marina abramovic show at MoMA. every couple of days, i see these beautiful tear-stained faces staring intently at an absent figure, the amazing performance artist.
for me, her absence becomes immediately present, and i also cry. it’s like an echo of what is really happening, which is also an echo of what is really happening.
and most-excellent used of blogs/flickr for performance/contemporary art.
i posted one of these for my friend john a while back for his trip from london to new york. well, now my dear friend age is heading over to brooklyn, taking the tankard for a bit of a holiday and i’ve promised him a list of things to do. i know that he won’t get to anything, but what kind of friend would i be, if i didn’t provide this kind of support, hey?
age, have a ball. and if you don’t come back, i promise to send you most of your shoes and your xbox.

11 spring st. i know it’s not a mecca for street-style art anymore, but if you’re in the area, spill a drink on the gutter.
