As I was crossing an intersection between Mass Ave and Putnam on Pearl, this camouflaged leaf registered in my mind a footstep later. When I returned, I discovered this thinner-than-tissue remainder of the previous fall's shedding. This leaf presumably made it through the winter, under snow and plow, on the gravelly road. Amazing.
This elegant cube, a mirrored square side table designed by Ilse Crawford, caught my eye at the Independent Curators International. It was Moss Gallery's contribution to an exhibit on March 5th of design pieces paired with art objects. The other half of this pairing, a series of 12 prints by Sol Lewitt, was contributed by the independent art curators Thea Westreich and Ethan Wagner. The only downside I see to this piece is that it appeared to be surfaced in small squares; however, the smaller facets are actually an illusion created by brownish china-crayon looking lines applied to the mirrored surface. A little dissapointing - though probably more practical. The presence of this shiner take on a character common to Lewitt and Bochner still commands my attention. I am left wondering what Crawford's inspirations were.

Of note: this street seller was not only offering books and furniture for sale, he was also singing bits of musicals and operas at interested customers. (7th & 28th)
Another twin set in NYC; this surprised me for some yet un-clear reason. (Chelsea)

Ironically, I saw a rat dart out from under the door this sign appeared on, and then right back a moment later. Clearly no one had informed HIM. Nor was the rodenticide effective. Perhaps plugging the rat-sized hole in the door have have helped isolate the situation ... (West 4 Station)
Hey there Mista' Buildin', what's cookin'?
