dayoutlast is a record of my direct engagement with mostly contemporary art, mostly Los Angelean.

As this blog has evolved since its 2010 inception, so has my perspective. What I once perceived as central within the investigation was what was central, literally, within the photographic frame that I shared here. While still an important consideration, such thinking has also given way to more peripheral considerations, ones also accompanied occasionally by text (written manifestation of thought) and the oscillations between them. What's missing here are larger unknowns surrounding issues of presentation and representation; the amount of time and space it actually takes to accomplish such first-hand observations; and the quandaries between documentation and interpretation.

Despite my attempt to communicate here with image and text what is essential in some respect about the artwork, neither representation should ever be considered a substitution for the primary viewing experience. Of course, occasionally there are exceptions.

Most of the time, these posts are merely remnants---residual fragments---from my last day out.

Mondrian (water in gray). Recent Rashid Johnson show at Kordansky comes to mind (see here), but in a superficial way. Surface and pattern. Audio speaker webbing. Substantial, heavy (at least as far as I can tell). Cf. Valentin (stable mate). Sound of these quiets the intimate view. Overlapping curvilinear and rectilinear lines. Lines that do not resolve onto shape but insist on the movement despite seeming "static" at least in the way white noise would appear on broadcast television outage. Exquisitely stylish objects. Some that are nice in pairs or groups. Hinoki.
