Alexander Calder

"To most people who look at a mobile, it's no more than a series of flat objects that move. To a few, though, it may be poetry."

I saw a retrospective of his at the Miro Foundation in Barcelona when I was 19. There were early films of his mobiles and his studio and his circus. It was one of my first moments when I found it hard to leave the gallery, I was there for hours.

Anyway, these from the home of Alexander Calder. A little bit of a dream house.

It began here. More here. Eileen Agar. I love her numbers shirt.



Shimenawa. Shinto. Another reason to love Japan, the wedded rocks.
