Went on a trip Upstate with my sweetie to Dia:Beacon, a must-see spot on the contemporary-art circuit! It was so well curated & beautiful. There was a long, windowed hall which housed light installations by Dan Flavin. Flavin once summed up his practice as “decisions to combine traditions of painting and sculpture in architecture with acts of electric light defining space.”
“Dia:Beacon’s expansive spaces are well suited to the needs of large-scale installations, paintings, and sculptures. In keeping with Dia’s history of single-artist, site-related presentations, each gallery was designed specifically for the art it contains.”
I just watched gm upsate and i was dissapointed at the scene where Maya and Riley are in the bay window with everyone and Riley says something “and i do this” while she grabs Maya’s shoulders and looks at her, i swore they were gonna kiss but it didnt happen :(((
Sunday night I went to bed at 11, and woke up at 3, could not go back to sleep for the life of me, so I caught up on tumblr, and talked to Christian on skype til like 7AM.
Last night (monday) I fell asleep at 9, and woke up at 12… wtf. I didn’t want to deal with not being able to sleep, so I took a melatonin pill… It’s almost 2, and I still can’t sleep.
My DV-R decided to stop recording things, and erased everything I had prior to 2011, so I have nothing to catch up on, either. I never realized how boring being upstate was. All my friends are busy a lot, too… I am kind of glad that I moved into the city. Even on days where there’s nothing to do, there’s something I can do.
