Homework:

1. Describe this sculpture.
2. What do you see when you look at this sculpture?
3. What does it feel like to touch it?

(I am writing an article on it and need some fresh perspective.)

    1. Hard outer shell with some circuit board parts in it surrounding a translucent core that probably glows in the dark.
    2. Battlestar galactica…maybe fossilized trash.
    3. Outside like a fossil. Inside probably a little yielding and smooth.

    Has anyone else been suffering from app glitches? I have had a rather strong bout of misfortune with the blog lately, as the posted response I had to this seems to have deleted itself, or never went through. Aggravating. My response though, was an intepretation involving a yolky, squelching centre, that would take you up to the forearm. It’s glacious outer is smooth and ridged, sleek to the eye and touch.
    So much else of the original comment is forgotten,and cheapened with remembering.

    Thank you two for these – they are big helps. It has been a difficult exercise to devote sustained attention to just one object without trying to encapsulate her practice or use comparative devices.

    AC – it makes me profoundly sad that your first response was lost – I’ve had glitches like that happen to me in the past. So frustrating. Anyway, your short recollection of it is still moving.
