and to the sea i took

Ask me anything   I live in New York City and work with the Berlin Institute for the Blind to direct a small workshop that employs blind artisans and musicians to create shoes, brushes, sweaters, and flutes. They see with their hands, and they've taught me to see with my heart. I'm creating this blog for a fresh start from my blogger.com one, and I'll share my experiences, photography, and other interests here. (For old bloggers who follow me since BGS days, forgive me if the blog looks bare now) If you have any questions, just ask! /pour la reine et le pays, je te servir/

Happy Birthday Einstein!
Some rare captures and photo collage of Albert Einstein

Born 14 Mar 1879; died 18 Apr 1955 at age 76. German-American physicist who developed the special and general theories of relativity and won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921 for his explanation of the photoelectric effect. Recognized in his own time as one of the most creative intellects in human history, in the first 15 years of the 20th century Einstein advanced a series of theories that proposed entirely new ways of thinking about space, time, and gravitation. His theories of relativity and gravitation were a profound advance over the old Newtonian physics and revolutionized scientific and philosophic inquiry.

Some Quotes

“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and all science. He to whom this emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand rapt in awe, is as good as dead: his eyes are closed.”

“A man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. He sits on a hot stove for a minute, it’s longer than any hour. That is relativity.”


“Anyone who thinks science is trying to make human life easier or more pleasant is utterly mistaken.”

“My internal and external life depend so much on the work of others that I must make an extreme effort to give as much as I receive.”


“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”

Courtesy the artists.On Tuesday, March 19 at 7pm, SculptureCenter is pleased to present On Pedagogy and Practice with Keith Boadwee and Justin Lieberman. This program draws on an existing dialog between two artists whose practices are acutely influenced by their experiences as art professors. Both artist-teachers share an interest in collective authorship and radical education, and take a critical stance toward of the professionalization of art school. In their artwork, Boadwee and Lieberman push questions of accepted taste, challenging existing academic standards. Boadwee will discuss Club Paint, an ongoing collaboration with two of his former students, Isaac Gray and Erin Allen. Lieberman will speak on his S. A. C. (Student Art Collective) project, currently on view at SculptureCenter, which examines ethics and power relations in pedagogical settings.
