i learned how to datamosh this weekend! obviously chairlift knew what was up looong before i did:
an experimental dance pioneer in the early 20th century, loie fuller performed at the folies bergère and inspired artists across europe.
film, the new technology of the time, served as the perfect vehicle for the continuous flutter of fuller’s dance.
yesterday in my notebook i wrote: “is the piazzoni mural room at the deyoung the best museum room ever?”
it may very well be.
it is quiet in that room, even when the rest of the museum is not. sunlight streams in through windows facing the ever-fascinating music concourse. and then, there are the paintings themselves.
i bought the most amazing book from my favorite store in the mission: gravel and gold. the book is called gunta stölzl: bauhaus master. through writings and artworks from stölzl from about 1917-1931, the book gives an incredibly intimate look at the bauhaus’ only female instructor. the images are so well printed that i found myself repeatedly touching them with my finger to confirm that they were not pasted in. highly recommended!
