Everything that is known has already happened. To operate only within the confines of the known creates attachment to certainty, and although this may produce a false sense of comfort and security, it actually inhibits emotional, person, and spiritual evolution.
Here are a few treasures I found while at the Alameda Flea Market with a couple friends last weekend: antique mail slots and fish-shaped hooks, and a giant classroom-sized slide rule. As well as antique glass glitter and a fantastic dress from Brazil that will make its debut at this year’s Burning Man.
Beautiful video of an amazing installation by one of my heroes….
“I can remember the feeling of swinging—how hard we would work for those split seconds, flung at furthest extension, just before the inevitable downward and backward pull, when we felt momentarily free of gravity, a little hiccup of suspension when our hands loosened on the chain and our torsos raised off the seat. We were sailing, so inside the motion—time stopped—and then suddenly rushed again toward us. We would line up on the playground and try to touch the sky, alone together.” – Ann Hamilton, the event of a thread
Here’s a recent FLOR installation I helped with for the Lyft office in San Francisco. The carpet makes the lounge feel more comfy, and the yellow zig-zag border follows the natural foot traffic at the office entrance. I love the extra functionality of the yellow square in the center as a place for new drivers to stand and have their photos taken!
