Arts What Say You, Mudede?
Do many millet grains make porridge? What of the untold labor? If you can spare a moment, Charles, would you please relate this artwork to Nietzsche, architecture, and the crying of little boys? I’m just in the mood to see some dots connected Mudede-style, if you’re in the mood to oblige.
(This is a work of art from Dan Halter’s current exhibition in Cape Town, South Africa. For the untrained eye: these are interwoven maps of Zimbabwe. Oh, and I saw them on the great visuals blog vvork [get it? vvork? work?], introduced to me today by the marvelous Nick, who is very much not wearing a sheriff’s badge over his right pectoral muscle, but who did remind me that Seattle Opera is finally doing Handel this season. The trend Anne Midgette refers to in her piece in in today’s NYT has completely skipped Seattle, unless I’m crazy. Anyone know when was the last Speight Jenkins Handel?)
