Busy weekend, running errands, sanding wood and visiting an exhibiton (designed by a friend) of work by two artists at the Tramway in Glasgow. Was an interesting show, think my three favourite items were, a big black wall dividing the space, a video of colour blobs moving about to music and the strange light on a couple of paintings that made them look holy.
I did, as always, struggle to understand the explanation handout or why none of the works had titles. The handout contained lots of phrases about "the viewer creating the work in the moment of experience" which I tend to think is a cop out for art, when it's really just abstract non-sense and is pretending to have some kind of deeper meaning. That being said, I did enjoy the show.
This weekend I also had nice chats with; an old man on the bus who used to drive tanks, a balding man who collects antique mechanical devices and a slightly drunk lady who was taking photos of the moon eqlipse, with her flash so "it will come out brighter".
