Infinitely weird universal specificity





Life is difficult because it is experienced privately and specifically. In works like Panacea Miguel Rózpide Pazó tries to bridge the gap of individual experience by showing what actually exists between our private specificities — not empty space — but binding, infinitely weird, universal specificity. Lovely texts, galleries and layouts throughout. 📷❤️

We are not particularly devoted to the painter Francis Bacon, but we really love this documentary interview with him. It’s just so nice to see an intelligent and talented person being talented and intelligent but also drunk and unvarnished. The lunch chat at 28:25 is quite good.🍷

I may have been here always





Both the subject matter and technique of Benjamin Rasmussen’s beautiful photo-essays seem to be balancing something like desolation with optimistic perseverance. The site is clear, pensive and full of genuinely acute observations — it is definitely worthwhile spending time here. 🌞🌚

Riding three days and nights he came upon the place, but decided it could not be come upon.
He paused therefore to consider.
This must be the place. If I have come upon it, then I am of no consequence.
Or this cannot be the place. There is then no consequence, but I am myself not diminished.
Or this may be the place. But I may not have come upon it. I may have been here always.
Or no one is here, and I am merely of and in the place. And no one can come upon it.
This may not be the place. Then I am purposeful, of consequence, but have not come upon it.
But this must be the place. And since I cannot come upon it, I am not I, I am not here, here is not here.
After riding three days and nights he failed to come to the place, and rode out again.
Was it that the place knew him not, or failed to find him? Was he not capable?
In the story it only says one need come upon the place.
Riding three days and nights he came upon the place, but decided it could not be come upon.

Details of the quiet aspect of things





Details of the quiet aspect of things and lots of space on Liam Stevens’ site — like a visual accompaniment to the William Carlos Williams lines: through metaphor to reconcile the people and the stones. Compose.

One can’t see what one isn’t equipped to see — dimensionally speaking. But sometimes those with the right skills can detail this limitation (like these two) and the otherness can be inferred — whether it be malevolent, curious, indifferent or 🌀.

Poetic, intellectual and culturally sensitive spaces





The world at large rarely allows for spaces that promote the quiet and calm needed for dignified thought — and is worse for it. Thus we are thankful for the perspectives of those, like architects Frank Escher and Ravi GuneWardena, who commit to fostering poetic, intellectual and culturally sensitive spaces. 🖖

Although each emanates from vastly different contexts, the work of Sharon Lockhart and Andrei Tarkovsky share a beautiful and unique ability: that of capturing the human animal confronting the inscrutability of its own situation.
