I have been remiss. Yesterday was one of my favourite artists' birthday: #davidhammons just turned 74. #hammons makes very simple yet extremely provocative #art. Like here, in 1983, where he's selling #snowballs he's made on the street in #newyork (his "Bliz-aard Ball Sale"). His body of work speaks about the politics of #race, #process and the 'currency' of art. He explores the status of the object but he also sheds light (and casts some serious shade in the process) on the way those objects are made, then come to and are then assimilated within the #market. Here's why I #love David Hammons. One of the best shows #whitecube did whilst I worked there was a very beautiful show of Hammons' work. Upstairs at Mason's Yard were 'Basketball Drawings' - apparitional #abstract works on paper made by coating a #basketball in #pigment and simply bouncing it on the paper. Downstairs were some killer sculptures and his wonderful 'Tarp Paintings' - Abstract Expressionist-inspired surfaces, painted by the artist, but then overlaid with and obfuscated by #tarp. The material used to hide rubbish. Or offer some form of shelter for the homeless. On the night of the opening all the salespeople were at the ready. Pumped for the show - which was quite, quite brilliant - and price lists at the ready. The crowd assembled outside was larger than usual. And then we got word that David had decided that it was OK for everyone to see the works upstairs but all the work downstairs were off limits. No-one was allowed to go down and see the work. Absofuckinglutely no-one. The visible was made invisible. The works weren't on hold; David put the market and the mechanics of the gallery on hold. It was a very simple, but telling gesture. The currency of art lies with the artist and not the gallery or auction house that sells it. Or the collector who buys it. It was a decision both fucking annoying and fucking genius all at once. If the art market is The Matrix then David Hammons is the Oracle. A sweet old man, maybe baking cookies and smoking a lot of cigarettes, who quietly and presciently knows fucking everything about fucking everything. Love.

@sodahikes said it was windy that night. I mean I don't know, I was pretty cozy and protected under this giant tarp of @gossamergear. The only disturbing thing were the slugs I found in the morning around me, uagh 😂.

電車deキャンプではパッキングの都合上タープ張らない方も多いですが、設営好きの雨男としてはタープ張らないと落ち着かなくて...
とはいえ、手持ちのムササビ焚き火verはザックに入らないし、かといってTraveling lightは予算オーバー
.
ということで見つけたのが、NatureHikeの軽量五角タープ。
所謂中華タープですが、縫い目にはシームテープが張ってあるし、ハトメ部分は補強がしてあってちゃんとしたクオリティ。
付属のペグはアルミ(ジェラルミン?)のYペグですが、スクリュー形状になっていて、打ち込むと(微妙にw)回転しながら入っていきます。
付属のガイロープは黄緑だったので、ダークグリーンに交換。
ナイロン20Dと薄いため、影は期待できませんがその分収納はコンパクト、更に収納ケースはコンプレッションタイプなのでギリギリまで小さくでき、電車deキャンプ向き。(だから選んだのですが)
正面以外は視線が遮断できる形状なので、孤独を楽しみたいぼっちキャンプ向きでもあり、思ったよりカッコよくて、電車deキャンプに欠かせないお供になりそうです。
