Observing the whimsical engraving Fascinators (2016) by the printmaker Ellen Heck.

Heck uses möbius strip models as hats on her series of portraits of young girls. She says these paradoxical or mathematical shapes “are looking at and attempting to visually solidify thought processes” linking her work to the ideas of emergentism.

QED

Reading Mary Low.


‘As darkness closes in and obscures the events of the day, the owl begins its work of comparison; it scans the nights in the forest of history, belatedly grasping the images of departed daylight in order to organise them as montage.’ Thinking of Chris Marker’s The Owl’s Legacy, while reading The Otolith Group’s Inner Time of Television.


Slowly reading through Sophie Bowness’ book of essays by Dame Barbara Hepworth, issued by Tate Publishing. This segment in particular struck a chord: Barbara Hepworth in conversation with Reg Butler.

Here are some shorter quotes.
