Scenes for a line is a stack of printed horizon lines available to take out of the gallery. Gazing out over the horizon is one of the fundamental pleasures of being human; And the simplicity of this black and white line allows it to shift into a multitude of landscapes. Scenes are printed on the back.
Hold in mouth:
– a bird
– a ticking watch
– a water balloon
– chrysoprase (for invisibility)
– someone’s tongue, soft, not kissing
Scenes for body-horizon lines:
walking into a store. (rest your head on the shoulder of the person in front of you.)
doctors office? (would you like to lie your arm in here? your hands look cold. my side is warm.)
on the bus (electric hairs on the shoulder that caress the neck of whoever sits next to you.)
two walk to a flat landscape. one lies down, stretched out, the other lies on top. the stripes in their clothes press into them, a type of stratified weight pushing them into their horizontal compression.
wind relations. clothes that the wind can get in and caress. pockets which hold the wind against you. areas that let it caress past.
locker room shower. swim cap. (fold one ear forward, one back.) allow water to fall over your skullcap. close eyes.
Scene 3 Velocities & Lines:
– the rate at which gravity re-enters the body as water drains out of the tub
– a walk from here to there
– water in a garden hose
– a kiss, the transfer of heat and saliva
– face in neck, smell of skin into nose
– the edge of the road
– the edge of a table or desk
– the windowsill of my car
– an overpass
Other horizon lines (Lines that caress):
– water draining out of a bathtub
– gravity slipping into your body in shifts
– is there a mathematical equation that can tell me at what rate gravity rises into my body?
– the water that traces your contours as it drains, tickling and itching little corners and crevices
– tongue in mouth
– instrument panel – notes on air
Send your eye on a journey across your arm, away from you:
– clothing or sheet wrinkles (hills/dunes/mountains) – the swell of your shoulder (a hike)
– the hairs on your arm (weeds/trees/forests)
– over your fingers (boulders)
– where rays of sun fall (deserts)
(start over again)
