Recently (yesterday) when I stopped to assess how I was spending my time once again, I realized that on a fairly regular basis my time consists of looking at art. With art sometimes I am pleasantly surprised, sometimes deeply inspired and sometimes muttering under my breath "fer crissakes" because I am in the midst of some boring art in a room full of janky people. Focusing on the positive, just wanted to share some of the visual art I have come across in the last few months that I have really liked.
Watts Towers constructed by Simon Rodia. Los Angeles, December 2011.

The Ungovernables (group show). New Museum. New York City. April 2012. Really enjoyed most of the exhibit but my favorite piece by far was the film "Jewel" by Hassan Kahn. I could have watched it at least five more times and am regretting that I didn't. Might go back. I finally found a decent recording of it on the interweb and wanted to share it.

|Dias en que todo es verdad (a small portion of the installation). Mariana Telleria.|
