You call yourself a free spirit, a “wild thing,” and you’re terrified somebody’s gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you’re already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it’s not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It’s wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.
—  Truman Capote, Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Jeppe Hein


“While they’re simple in form, initially uncomplicated, each work is laden with ideas. Having pieces that literally come alive when approached creates a relationship between art and viewer that can’t be ignored, reminding the audience of their “vital part in activating art’s communicative potential” and at the same time, expanding our “notion of what art is or could be.”

Yesterday you had a fight with him that ended up a turn on for both of you. You ended up with him cuddling the next morning. You know there’s more than evil in him. You see him and admire himself asleep, with such an inoffensive face, so powerless and calm. Pure cuteness.

- Stop looking at me. - He’s still cuddling you.

- Stop being like that, you’re with both hands around my waist and still want to feel rough… - He opens one eye and sees you while smiking. - See? I just see cuteness in that. - He kisses you and stands up. You smile.

- Don’t make yourself confortable. - He puts his shirt on and walks up to the end of the bed while seeing you. - Now back to your cage. - You laugh a bit and put on your shoes.

- Yeah, sure. I forgot that Peter Pan doesn’t have feelings, and it’s not more than one villain more… - You walk up to him and give him a kiss in one of his cheeks. - Let me tell you something. - You whisper. - I’m not that easy, Pan. - You leave and he smiles.

Better Ole Club Orchestra at Zoo - ‘Beats the Arctic ice and snow’ so said Mr. Polar Bear at the Washington [DC] Zoo, when the ‘Better Ole’ club orchestra, assisted by Dolly Daye, dancer, tried their wildest notes and dances in front of Bruno’s cage. True to form, Mrs. Bruno developed a streak of jealousy and refused to watch the performance. Music may ‘soothe the savage beast’ but Bruno’s chief interest was centered on the little lady

For the anon requesting up close pictures of the cage- here ya go! I am running very low on hammocks and I’m too lazy to make more so usually I would have 2 more hammocks in here. And then I have a stash of cardboard boxes, bags, and tubes that I switch out every week and I try to change major furniture pieces every 2 weeks or so.
