Sleepwalkers, Night 15
The FedEx lamp in the postal worker's apartment is my favorite moment of irony in Sleepwalkers. I've loved this lamp since I saw it during the Creative Council's studio visit with Doug Aitken a few months ago. .
No irony here. Just a quiet moment of light.
My friend Sue came along for the ride tonight. At one point, she mentioned the silent film aspect of the work, something that curator Peter Eeley had discussed on NPR recently. When we were in the garden Sue brought up the subject again during one of the more abstract sections when she said, "I know this is a silent film, but doesn't this part look loud?" I mean, seriously, how many ways can I say, "Yes."? Such a kick to witness somebody absolutely and completely getting something you love.
