I read Reborn, excerpts from Susan Sontag’s journals and notebooks from 1947-1963 about a year ago, and I love going back to leaf through it and hear Sontag’s voice mature and her life change through the documented years.

Whiskers (or Vibrissae) are special hairs or feathers (in birds) that provide tactile sensations. They are found on the faces of almost all mammals except for man and […]

Stefani and I drove to CalArts last week to hear Kerry Tribe speak about her work.  Kerry was so generous and congenial in her lecture. It was a real delight to hear her speak about her projects (past and present) and process. Above is a still from one of my favorite pieces of hers calle Here & Elsewhere. […]
