We are the Bay Area this week. Walking in the Berkeley hills we spied a lemon tree from Mars. Its owner let us take a few.
At the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art we gazed at these two busts, one made of chocolate and the other, soap. The artist calls them, “Lick and Lather”.
It was the first time I ever had the urge to eat a statue.
Since televisions are flat now, we sometimes see them on walls as art.
This one had a quiet interior tableau where nothing moved...except
rising cigarette smoke.
We wondered, “How’d they stay so still?”.
If you stared long enough you'd notice an occasional blink or or hand movement.
We thought the smiling woman had the toughest position. She held that grin so well.
It took about ten minutes for the cigarette ash to reach the filter and drop.
When it did, the video looped back then started again.
