Zander Olsen’s Tree, Line brings two of my loves together: art that interacts with the natural landscape (Olsen describes them as “site specific interventions in the landscape”), and art that invites the viewer into a perspective shift.  Considering the latter, I revel in these glimpses of a different way of looking at the world.  Like perhaps I can keep my brain in this alternate universe for a moment, and solve a problem that’s confounded me.

This piece by Graziano Locatelli is haunting me.  It landed in my instagram feed while I was away camping for the last week.  I keep going back to it, sending it to another friend, going back to it…  art-graziano-locatelli-03b-664x1000

But perhaps more haunting is the mystery of his personal website.  Why did he let it expire?  Who is this Japanese beef-loving party planner who’s taken over?  How does such an unattractive WordPress theme exist?  The mistranslation from party planner to social worker is so satisfying!

I recommend poking around on his facebook page for “i Pop”.

Today I scoured the city for inspiration.  Art left me empty, trains of thought hit dead ends.  And then my daycare provider sent me this song, saying my kid really liked it.
