When first looking at “Gordet Stone,” 1958, by Seung-Taek Lee I noticed how smooth the dangling stones were. I thought they might be clay because they fit so well in the ropes, but they were actually stones. This may be part of Lee’s continual practice of elevating mundane objects into higher art or myth. The stones are linked to his practice of focusing on the beauty found in traditional Korean aesthetics as the small stones were used by Korean artisans to hold down mats while weaving. In this piece, the stones do not fulfill their artisanal purpose, but rather hang free, demonstrating their weight with their motionless suspension. What I love about his work is even if you are not well versed in Korean traditions you can still find beauty in its pleasing aesthetics.

It is after 5:00 PM ya know!!!" 🍷🏙🍷 #winslowinthecity#winewednesday
A steady rain falls. I hop over puddles, umbrella in my hand, S·Town in my ears. A train approaches on the tracks underneath, lights glowing through the fog and the mist. I will soon walk into a building on the Upper East Side, go up into an apartment that could substitute as an art gallery, hug friends and meet new acquaintances, celebrate a friend releasing the depths of her soul in book form, and I will be grateful. And thankful. And in awe of these moments. And of the rain. And the puddles. And the fog. And the train rumbling by underneath. I'm a fortunate soul, this much is true...

My vet occasionally takes in dogs from shelters to foster for a bit, and I've grown quite fond of one in particular. Her name is Shadow, c/o @bestfriendsanimalsociety , and she is a sweet, adorable, happy little ragamuffin. She is likely between 6-7 yrs old and about 20 lbs. This darling foster pup is in need of a stable, happy home and loving parents. I've been spending time with her and she is just so very sweet (look at those eyes 👀!). She has all her shots, just got her dental work done, and is healthy. DM me if you're in the NY area and are curious to learn more. 💕🐶 #adopt#adoptdontshop#adoptadog#nyc#dogsofinstagram#newyork#manhattan#uppereastside#ues#ladygaga#dogs#puppy#bestfriendsanimalsociety
