  • Ah. Kingston. Them’s my old stomping grounds. Did you stop by the Wolfe Island Bakery, perchance? Their butter tarts are, in a word, divine.

    • not this time but i have been by there before! i did eat at Golden Rooster as much as possible though! love that place!

  • :O you were in Kingston!? it would’ve been so cool if you had the chance to stop by Queen’s!! i’m quite certain a lot of ppl here love your website, haha.

    • i was actually at Queens (in the ARC) almost everyday! my sister is doing her doctorate there

  • ahh no way, i go to queens and LOVE this website!

    • i love that my mouse just became a cat on your site. what program are you in??

  • This made me miss Kingston so so so much. I did my BFA there and now I live in a very warm island, but the cold looks so heart warming. Love your website, I check it daily and thank you for keeping my head moving forward with color and beautiful images.

    • cheers justin!

Artist Makes Street Repairs Using Gold

Brooklyn-based artist Rachel Sussman adapts the Japanese art of Kintsugi (golden joinery) or Kintsukuroi (golden repair) in her ongoing series “Sidewalk Kintsukuroi.” Traditionally used to fix broken pottery, gold or silver is used to embellish the repair as it is seen as part of the object’s history rather than something to hide.

In Sussman’s case, filling cracks in the pavement pays similar homage to the changes that have taken place in the world around us. See more images from the project below or on display at the Des Moines Art Center until May 5th.
