6-06-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Room

This week’s photo challenge is Room.

Many meanings there, of course. When I was a child one song evoked the concept of room for me better than any other tune I knew. I think the performer had something to do with it although Learner and Loewe can write a song.

 

Last year, MOMA had a retrospective of Isa Genzken‘s work. I love much of what she has done but I was particularly taken with this piece and how people reacted to it.

2-17-14 Happy Alexander Hamilton Day

Truly idiotic and embarrassing or advertising scheme that proves there is such a thing as bad publicity…you be the judge.

I went to MOMA yesterday with a friend who wanted to see the Isa Genzken: Retrospective” and I wanted to see “A World of It’s Own: Photographic Practices in the Studio.” We both were interested in “There Will Never Be Silence: Scoring John Cage’s 4’33”

I took a few pictures of the Genzken Retrospective. I didn’t take any of the Photographic Practices since I am not a big believer in photographs of photographs unless you have a specific idea in mind and I did not take any of The Cage because, amusingly given his work and the work of his mentors and followers, photographs were not allowed. Insert visions of Fluxus and Dada giggling….
