In the ocean I see the collision of life and death: the rising of each wave is life insisting on itself, and in the trough I see death. These high points and low points are all part of the larger dance. You really feel the lament of the ocean, and at the same moment there’s a generosity, because the waves keep coming. These forces are working back and forth endlessly.
You can read the touching and inspiring interview “Water, water everywhere — Ran Ortner’s love affair with the sea” by Ariane Conrad in its entirety over at The Sun Magazine.
Do you have a dream? If the answer is no, get out of your cave and start smelling the flowers. On the other hand, if you do have a dream, there’s something I think you should know. It’s not a big thing really, just a small sentence. Three words, only. They sound great when whispered. But shouting them out loud feels like painting with Technicolor:
Nothing is impossible.
Enter Tom Sachs. Tom really likes space, as in outer space. I would guess one of his dreams is to go to space. To the Moon. To Mars. Although not everything takes the shape one might imagine, or expect, Tom Sachs is a newly discovered living proof that nothing is impossible. Do you dream of Mars? Then go there!
The Tom Sachs Space Program: Mars can be visited in the Park Avenue Armory in New York until June 17th.
