Blood Before Orange

Love is a blood orange.

A statement in pink

The Fox suggested this spot for brunch yesterday. In typical form, I explored the internet to get more info on the place. I noticed the pink synesso and decided I needed to see.

I envy the way love and trust are as easy as home; my life searching for relief. Here is to the only home I've ever known and unknown.

"Le coup" a la Frank Ape

In 1974 a French high wire artist, Phillipe Petit, tightroped across the Twin Towers in a 45min display that was years in the making. Spotting Frank Ape on his unicycle with the Verrazzano in the background, I couldn't help but appreciate the nod to an achievement that will probably never be performed again (big brother era).

Don't Tell Mom

Got this baby almost three-weeks ago and was finally ready to show it. What better way than in front of @hellbent_'s wall on the 69th Floor of Tower4? Thanks for the visit @joshuabgeyer! 📷@4rilla.

Oh, but also, I haven't told or showed my mom yet. I wanted it fully healed before she freaked out and slapped it in response. Shhh!!

Eulogy for the Living

You know what one of my least favorite phrases is: "it& #39;s too political," followed by, "it& #39;s racially charged." The people saying it are more often than not unaware of the place of privilege they're coming from to say that, as if being a person of color isn't an act of defiance every day.
Taja Lindley's work can not be translated to a single image, it is experiential and multi-layered. Here she stood outside her room as people flooded in and out. I loved the intensity of her peace, and the healing nature of her piece.

Spring/Break remains my favorite for giving these charged works a space to be seen, heard, experienced.
