Yesterday, at the MOMA, I got excited about Zoe Leonard’s Analogue. 412 photographs of disappearing storefronts on the Lower East Side, and neglected consumer products, captured by her own obsolete piece of technology, a Rolleiflex camera.
I got to spend some time with Cy Twombly at The Tate (left) and at the MOMA. The first is text he wrote from the last line of Rilke’s Duino Elegies on a card at the base of one of his untitled sculptures in 1987, and the second is his painting “Academy” from 1955. As I get older, I’m watching my own handwriting become wild and more beautiful, a little like this, and I like not being able to read it after I’m done with it. That would maybe miss the point.
