"Yellow Rosa Cirq[incision]" and "My Gallo Comb Balanced"
are predominantly rural travel impressions. "Saya Makin
Angin" means "I am eating air" in Bahasa Indonesian and
is commonly used as a response to "where are you going?"
Gallo Comb Balanced" is based on a failed climbing trip
I took to Pico de Orizaba near Mexico City. I got altitude
sickness and a taxi driver with a mole like a cock wattle
(who subsequently took on an additional 19 passengers) told
me to stick a river stone in my armpit as a cure. The text
is inscribed over a picture I took of the door of Gaudi's
Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.
Rosa Cirq[incision]" is obviously based on Texas and my
juvenile fascination with its somewhat arbitrary shape on
a map. The first woman I remember naked was a stout Mexican
woman named Rosa with hair on her thighs. Most of my experience
with Texas is based on passing through it--hence my preconceptions
and misunderstandings are banished outside of the borders.
I did visit the Alamo, but didn't understand what's to remember
outside the shame of hypocrisy.
farming process for me is rarely linear, but usually starts
with an image or set of animals or concepts and how they
relate to each other. The mining process is by definition
preceded by exploration.
