We went to the Part Objects Part Sculpture members opening at the Wexner Center. We went through the entire exhibit but I believe we'll go through it again sometime. My favorite part was Josiah McElheny's An Historical Anecdote About Fashion, in which the glass objects resemble Christian Dior dresses. I told my husband later that I cried while looking at them and he asked why. The only explanation I could give is that when I look at them I feel the way a woman in a designer dress should feel.
We caught the last few minutes of Mark Stevens and Annalyn Swan talking about their Pulitzer Prize winning book. They seemed nice. I wonder if the attention has made them any different than they were before the prize. We went to the Sam Green interview. He discussed his 10-minute documentary that is so new it's not even listed in IMDB yet! It's called lot 63, grave c. It's where Meredith Hunter, the 18-year-old killed at the Rolling Stones concert at the Altamont Speedway, is buried. The documentary is nearly finished and it was shown. Sam was very charming. If I were a wealthy benefactor he would have gotten money from me for the Wexner Center's Art and Technology department. After the interview/discussion we went on a tour of the Art and Technology department. We got to see the Avid equipment and the sound editing rooms. Sweet!
Movies we saw include Good Night, and Good Luck. I was surprised to see Robert Knepper (T-Bag from Prison Break and former Ohio resident) in it as he's so intertwined with his Prison Break character in my mind that I wouldn't expect to see him anywhere else. We also saw Reel Paradise which chronicles the last month or so of John Pierson's year-long stint in Fiji showing free movies. A lot happens in that month. It's just unbelievable.
While running errands in the morning I had sentences from my NaNoWriMo novel floating around in my head begging to be written down. I let them go though, because one of the rules is that nothing can be written down before November 1st.
