This weeks #read78 poetry book was Everyone I Love is a Stranger to Someone, Annelyse Gelman’s #writebloody debut. I enjoyed the playfulness in the imagery even in poems on more serious subject matter, created a super realistic tension that I feel often between fun/joy/magic and sadness/loss/brokenheartedness. “giraffes” was one of my favorites for sure, as well as a poem in the voice of the narrators grandmother. Check it out! #poetry #books

thanks for the shoutout, Miles! i’m happy to be included in such a cool project.

Robert Venturi, Learning from Las Vegas, 1972

I am not sure who did the illustrations, I guess I am semi-comfortable believing that it was Venturi? I mean a lot of the stuff (and me) don’t mention Izenour’s work on the book either mainly because his work was mainly pedagogical/he was literally their assistant and so on but my issue is like MAYBE this drawing is by Robert Venturi but I’m uncomfortable not saying “Robert Venturi and Denise Scott Brown” ok

Episode #161: Ghanaian Artist El Anatsui.

Filmed at his Nsukka, Nigeria studio in 2011, artist El Anatsui describes the collaborative and contemplative setting where his artworks are made. Anatsui employs a team of assistants to construct “blocks” of joined bottle caps that are then shifted around on the studio’s floor. In looking at the patterns and textures created by this process, often through his digital photographs, Anatsui is able to form ideas for new work.

Working with wood, clay, metal, and the discarded metal caps of liquor bottles, El Anatsui breaks with sculpture’s traditional adherence to forms of fixed shape while visually referencing the history of abstraction in African and European art. Anatsui’s works trace a broader story of colonial and postcolonial economic and cultural exchange, told in the history of cast-off materials, while exploring ideas about the everyday function of objects and the role of language in deciphering visual symbols.
