For a few weeks over the summer, I am the unofficial head of the Serials Department, while everyone takes their summer holidays. While checking in the new periodicals a couple caught my eye: Paletten and Ordkonst. Two Swedish journals about art and literature, respectively.

Some Windows (2010)
Printed acetate and colored vellum layered on the windows of my studio in Malmö, Sweden.
RED OAK / FIRST DOG (2010-2011)
An imagined space where Walter de Maria's Broken Kilometer exists as a story of the separation of a boy and his two coon hounds.
friends making great art. more to peruse!
My new pair of spectacles - to seemlessly maintain vision inside and out. I never realised how poor my eyesight was until putting my glasses on -
akin to Dorothy's transition to techni-colour in The Wizard of Oz - entering a whole new world.
Now I just walk around looking at things, marvelling at how sharp and bright everything looks.
Tapas & type: colourfully arranged morsels and letters. The former last night's dinner, the latter a wedding gift for two friends celebrating wedded bliss last weekend in Copenhagen. Corresponding colours and composition almost. I like it when circumstances in my daily life visually reflect each other in an sort of aesthetic coincidence.
Hopefully 'Tapas Saturday' will become a monthly/summer tradition. I feel like I am in the time of my life where I would like to start building up a collection of my own 'traditions', instead of following someone else's. Perhaps this is another goal for the year.
