from around

- a translation of the interview I did for Insider on Art and Architecture in LA

- great feature on friend, Jesse Kamm, and her families home in Panama

- an incredible interview with the incredible Susan Sontag. I have been thinking about this non-stop since I listened to it over the weekend... thoughts about being a writer, what that means, what that looks like... thoughts about a democratic art, the elite, the masses... about anti-intellectualism... and more. It is so worth a listen to and a think about. 

- Piety and Perversity, a great essay on the history of the palm tree in LA

- colors come and go, by the lovely Claire Cottrell

- a beautiful film on ikebana (thanks Leigh!)

- most men would rather shock themselves than be alone with their thoughts (thank you Matthew)

- Man Ray's 1928 film, The Starfish

- beautiful new work from my friend Jeremy, Clouds

French architect Emile Aillaud
Constantin Brancusi
