Making Worlds

Green shoots are getting terribly boring.  The crystal ball club continues to issue proclamations of an upswing, or, at least that there is a bottom.  I am ever-loving a glass-half full, but, I think the glass is still chipped.  No matter what you see in the glass, the structure still needs attending to.  Or you might get a bloody lip.

Rather than gaze at the half-full half-empty chipped thing, how about a wander around?  Outside that world, there are others.  Daniel Birnbaum curated the exhibition at this year's Venice Biennale entitled "Making Worlds".  Here he is, explaining the different linguistic interpretations of the exhibition title, and, with that, he invites you to "open your eyes"...

I think I need a plane ticket.
