No introduction this time. I like this guy a lot. He has an aesthetic that I want. It's nice to see something that is so removed from the idea of appealing, whether intentionally or not, to a specific demographic. This instead, at least in my opinion, really is a sincere exploration. One that I am really jealous of, actually. I mean, this was his grandfather's apartment after his death. Shit.. I'm missing some words here...but part of what I've always aimed at in a way is dealing with given circumstances of a space and using them, or understanding them and accepting them as part of the language of the art I am making. I guess it could be seen as "working with the accident", but I like the idea of this dialog, or relinquishing total control over a piece....shit I am rambling.
What do you think?
