Marco Cadioli - Squares with Concentric Circles

Like a shadow,
I am and I am not.

Hold the old holding hand. Hold and be held. Plod on and never recede. Slowly with never a pause plod on and never recede.

Dan Holdsworth - Blackout (2010)

"…Iceland’s southern landscape, a place dominated by glaciers permeated with so much basalt-black dust and grit as to be dark, not light. In this harsh, vast landscape where tectonic plates rip the earth’s surface violently apart and volcanic ash and glaciers collide, the detritus of the past is literally frozen into the present.

These glaciers are, however, rapidly melting away, an event which acts as a powerful quantifier of the environmental conditions of our time.

Inspired by the 1965 New York blackout, this series sees Holdsworth execute a double inversion, making black glaciers white to craft an alter-reality within the negative frame. This is a modern measure of time, a phenomenological encounter in which distortion of light heightens the other senses, disrupts awareness of duration, and compels us engage with the world in an entirely new way. His decision to abstract an already incomprehensible terrain enhances its alien qualities: black skies and a landscape that appears illuminated from within portray a place that is, geologically and conceptually, more akin to a lunar landscape than our own planet.

These images are a digital rendering of the technological sublime, documents of a planetary surface that confront us with the Other, shifting perspective and forcing us to see ourselves anew.”

I get it now; I didn’t get it then. That life is about losing and about doing it as gracefully as possible…and enjoying everything in between.

HELP SAVE MY BEST FRIEND
So my main man Coco (on the right)  went to the vet today. Life threatening anemia, fever, weight loss. Doc doesn’t know what’s wrong, but we’re treating him for a number of potential issues (invasive parasites? bacterial infection?)
If you are feeling humanitarian, and are in a position to donate, I will be deeply and radically grateful. I will make art for you, write you as a poem, I will kiss you with my thoughts and meditate on your boundless generosity.

UPDATEIt’s feline leukemia. We have to separate the inseparable, oh our boys. Without a transfusion he “doesn’t have long” and we can’t afford a transfusion. There are other treatments to consider, ranging from conventional to totally far out. Much research to be done. Thanks for your support everyone.
