Outside is a San Francisco white-out, fog in every direction. It's the perfect time to cozy up beneath a blanket I designed and watch a show, read an essay, listen to an album I recommend to you today.
Art for Blankets
Weeks I don't have anything in the New Art section are actually good weeks. That means I had too much going on to organize art to share. But! What I did get done to share is my two entries for an online blanket competition. (Unfathomable without the context!) I also made the image above but did not submit.
If you spend much time on the internet, someone probably recommended this essay to you already. "The Crane Wife" by CJ Hauser in The Paris Review explores the inner, outer, and historical terrain of a woman just after she ends her engagement. I appreciated its honesty and heart.
Music for Plants
Pitchfork spends a lot of time in the present but it's when they dive into the past that they really stretch their fingers. The Mother Earth's Plantasia review is for a reissue from the 1970's Moog record that was given away with each plant purchase from a shop in southern California. A delight! This is a reminder why creativity and making things that you just wanna see in the world is totally radical.
If you know someone who would enjoy something on here, forward it to them.
