I love that Yoko continues to gives us this gift in the New York Times. It also rewards those of us who still read the paper version since it does not appear on nytimes.com. In the past, she has offered downloads on the imagine peace website.
Another view out the window with a nod of course to Robert Heinecken:
Flew home from California yesterday and I find the plane most conducive for cleaning out computer files or on this trip, updating my website:
feeling a migraine coming on
The Generation of Postmemory: Writing and Visual Culture After the Holocaust
So excited to have made the cover image.
It’s an amazing book bringing together Marianne’s important writings on postmemory. Her writings have influenced me tremendously and I learn so much when she writes about me.
When I wake up with migraines, I often feel there is a weight on my body and I am unable to move. I can’t even bring myself to reach the medication that is right beside my bed. At those times, Barbara Kruger‘s words and image comes to mind.
I am working on updating my website and have come across many old images I have forgotten about. like this one:
In summer 1984, I attended Yaddo and painted my studio floors white so I could have a white box in which to project slides. The room became my blank canvas and I projected just about every image I brought with me.
Returning to work after exhibiting is always hard.
Experimenting with my files and new found photoshop skills. I’ve discovered tonight that the overlay layer lets me make combinations like I used to putting two slides together on my light table.
Here I find myself staring at myself stare at the screen and while I am staring at the screen i find myself making the same gesture. And it is as if I am trapped in the screen – trapped in the news. The red in the photo is like blood on my hands and/or my mouth. I am both silenced and scarred.
