I’ve been dumping gas on the streets now. Running over here to interview this person. Hustling to a catch a prospective client before they leave their office. Racing to the zoo so the little boy can put on a condor suit.
Mid-week I kept driving from the gym, passed the ponderosa and landed at Smashbox to hear/see Melvin Sokolsky chatter about his perspective. He displayed 5 decades or so of cool ass work. There was a lot of practical illusion and surrealist fabrication. His basic jones seemed to be chicks dangling in some unusual manner and location. I can dig it.
The info itself wasn’t all that revelatory. I know with a budget you can do some cool shit. Don’t let someone tell fetter your imagination? Yeah. I believe the most interesting element was the feel of interest. You could tell cat really was still embroiled in the intrigue of light and telling stories with it. Outside of technique, you’re showing your state of being at the moment of fabrication. When it all comes down to it, the money gets spent and memory remains. Might as well have some fun while you have it.
