This is exactly how we live in today’s world – stacked on to of each other, carbon copies of each other. The idea of American freedom equates to a cell phone now – back in the 1920’s, it was a ford motor vehicle. Freedom today is navigating the world with a 400 dollar monthly payment cell phone, as opposed to a car payment. So, we move to metropolises, where we live stacked on one another, looking the same, doing the same. This is what this piece spoke to me and I loved it.

And, formally, it’s just a gorgeous installation. It’s nice to have the space to breath in the cavernous upper floor of The Marciano/Mason’s. IDK if I got all the way to iPhones and Model-T’s – interesting take! And for sure, it does feel very of-our-moment. Reply ↓ Share your LA thoughts?
