On a plane again.
Thinking, 'if only there were no carry- on allowed, we would take off so much quicker'.
I find my seat. Then before settling in to my window seat, the person who will sit in the middle asked the person in the isle to switch with the women sitting in the middle, across the isle. He says no. I do the switch.
People tell me that it is very nice of me. I start thinking I am a good person. Then I think, if I am thinking I am a good person, I am probably not.
Why must art be static? You look at an abstraction, sculptured or painted, an entirely exciting arrangement of planes, spheres, nuclei, entirely without meaning. It would be perfect, but it is always still. The next step in sculpture is motion.When we first went in to the Calder exhibit at LACMA, I could not resist blowing on some of the pieces to see if they would move. They did and it was wonderful.
Second time in, we are told, "no blowing on the art, and no photographs".
Great show, and lucky me, being able to see some in motion.
