It’s been a crazy busy week, but I’ve been trying to take a quick break now and then to enjoy being back in New York, surrounded by art and creativity.
1. Some great street art on Lafayette St. that I walk by every day on the way to school. (And now that Mr. Robot is my new favorite TV show, I get extra happy every time I walk by this hidden portrait of Elliot!)
2. I live so close to the Hudson river now! Perfect for Sunday evening sunset-watching.
3. New life motto? I loved this from the exhibit at the Center for Book Arts where Judy interned over the summer.
Right now I am working on choosing a “beat” for my Reporting NYC Subcultures class and I’m finding it so difficult because New York is so alive with so many cultures and subcultures and sub-subcultures. In the class we are exploring how a city can be a breeding ground for arts and culture and it makes me picture New York as a petri-dish, not growing germs (although that is also probably true) but growing the newest and coolest artists, musicians, poets, writers, dancers, and everything inbetween. I think the city has always been this way and I really hope it never dies. Human creativity is so inspiring to me!
4. New cool zines that I got at the New York Art Book Fair in Queens.
5. It’s now autumn, but the days are still incredibly beautiful and warm. The chilling memory of last winter is still on my mind as a warning to enjoy it while I can.
