I can't believe it's Sunday night already. What a fucking shame. I was just starting to recover myself too.
I did two cool things this weekend (I know, right?! Two!). First, I saw an amazing Swedish vampire movie called "Let the Right One In." It was totally fascinating, and not really all that terrifying. Very moody and, I imagine, Swedish. I say this because there was a lot of snow and an extremely blond, blue-eyed boy in it with pale skin. Clearly, I know nothing about Sweden, except that they have good street-style in Stockholm. And snow. And pale blond people.
The second cool thing I did was see the William Kentridge exhibit at SF MOMA, which was really first-rate. If you aren't familiar with his work, he's a South African artist best known for stop-motion chalk animations where he draws something, photographs it, erases it, and keeps going, meticulously crafting hundreds of drawings to make a fully animated piece. He's dabbled in everything from stage design to sculpture to film, and explores themes of colonialism and apartheid, which is not at all surprising considering he's a white man from South Africa (can you say awkward!?).
Below is one of the installations we saw. It's really impossible to see in this video just how cool it was. There's a projector on the ceiling projecting these stretched-out images into a flat circle, and a reflective cylinder in the middle of the circle where those images are reflected and take a normal shape. I can't imagine how hard that would be to do. Check it out:
Anyhoo, it's back to the grind. I hope I have a good week!
