new york! dominican screaming and pot smoke waft the second floor as i lug too many bags of gear up to a 4th story brooklyn walk-up, which i shall share with an absolute stranger..and a cat!
kinda liberating, like being 25 again..only with a job. and money. and purpose.
..that was one week ago, here's what the first week brought..
a new lookout to smoke and think and dream at..
a new hood to discover..
art art and more art!
*i'm going to take it as a great omen that my favorite artist, doug aitken, and favorite filmmaker, phillippe grandrieux were both presenting work my first week in town!
doug aitken was a total treat for me at 303 gallery
i basically skipped into the room, much to the chagrin of the bored gallerina
sabine hornig's 'reflections' at tanya bonakdar was pretty amazing too..
i ate a lot..
the weed helped..
and finally, my first visit to film society lincoln centre for a friday night talk and presentation of philippe grandrieux's White Epilepsy
*all photos taken with an iphone
**i've started shooting with my real camera, but wouldn't you know it, i lost my downloading wire..
