THE DAILY PIC: This Moebius Chair, by Pedro Reyes, is in the exhibition called Beyond the Supersquare at the Bronx Museum of the Arts. I like the way it modernizes the classic dos-à-dos love seat while adding reference to it as well. Reye’s chair refers, of course, to the famous one-sided figure described by the mathematician August Ferdinand Moebius, and it’s nice to see the paradox of that figure’s one-sided-ness translated into a physical, functional form. I also like the way the seat represents the symbol for infinity, and the quiet absurdity of having the infinite represented by an obviously bounded, earthly object. Modernism’s ambitions always reached out toward the universal and infinite, even while its objects inevitably stayed earthbound.

Worn Muteness, A Series of Quiet Questions

Going through old notebooks looking for answers to my own silence, tracing my huge hands feeling great and running out of sharpies doesn’t bother me. This is good. I will keep doing this. I hope you are loving the person you are becoming. At least trying to.
