Anonymous said: How do you guys feel about stage diving/crowd surfing? With the dude from Joyce Manor calling people out about it, is it a legitimate problem? Or are people just getting upset for no reason?
I stared at the video of the incident with dead eyes.
I have no opinion on this.
I read 40 different views on the thing, and I didn’t feel strongly about any of them.
I am numb to softness. Blind to whogivesashit social media baloney.

Untitled (Perfect Lovers) 1991. Clocks, paint on wall.
Untitled (Perfect Lovers) consists of two clocks, which start in synchronisation, and slowly, inevitably fall out of time due to the failure of the batteries and the nature of the mechanism. In a moving comment on his personal experiences, the piece refers to Gonzalez-Torres’ HIV positive partner Ross Laycock, and his slow decline and inevitable death due to AIDS. The clocks act as two mechanical heartbeats; representative of two lives destined to fall out of sync, and holds a poignant poetry about personal loss and the temporal nature of life.
“Don’t be afraid of the clocks, they are our time, time has been so generous to us…We conquered fate by meeting at a certain time in a certain space…we are synchronized, now forever. I love you.”
Really excited to say that I will be apart of this show at The Center for Fine Art Photography in December.
