Monday was a very good day. In the morning I was able to consider a work called "Monument" which Paul Stopforth produced as part of his Robben Island series. The shape of a blanket pin is transformed into something of land-art proportions, and one traces its curves as if one were reading a map. It becomes arcane and mysterious while remaining.....a pin. [ Some of Paul's work can be seen at www.paulstopforth.com.]
Last night I listened to Michelle Obama's speech. I can just imagine the blog-mileage piling up as people try to describe it. One word will do : Perfect.
