“It came closer to the ideal of uniting skin and skeleton from straight wooden members than any other structure known to me. It proved easy to erect. Three people put up the walls and roof in seven hours. Although I was pleased with the new structure in many ways, I felt that cutting the tongue and groove on the tapered boards still required too much skill for the average person.”

Lamps by David Kirshoff. I also laughed/choked reading the name of this piece, so that seems like a good reason to post it: Doodie Diaper Elf Babie Blue Pants.

Worth the obsession: writer/photojournalist Annemarie Schwarzenbach:
“She had the same effect on me as she had on everybody: this strange mixture of man and woman . . . not at all like a living being, but like a work of art.”

“An oval canvas 168 x 110 cm (661/4 x 431/4 inches) is placed 50 cm (193/4 inches) in front of the wall. the canvas is non-painted. it is connected to the wall by a fine metal wire attached to its upper half. it is also attached to the floor.a second oval canvas, 33 x 22 cm (13 x 83/4 inches), is hung by its left side to the wall 60 cm (231/2 inches) from the floor, and is painted the same color as the wall.
The large canvas is shown face-out as long as the artist is alive, and will be turned to face the wall when he dies.”

“‘Trees are like people – you never know when they’re gonna slap you in the face.’ That is quite straightforward; every kind of relationship requires interest, dosage of character, and a lot of labor. . . . I have been talking to trees for a while now and it is not always that we understand each other. Relationships in life, with places, people and mirrors, are just like that.”
ALSO: Lovely work table details.
