Climb the ladder with me
I believe that an artwork can be a conduit to a place your body can’t follow.
When I look at a work of art I bring a small stepladder so I can climb up and step beyond the frame, teeny tiny binoculars for examining the space between the lines, and a pair of ear buds plugged into a cell phone tucked in my shirt packet, near my heart. The ringer is turned to vibrate.
Listen for the phone to silently ring,
then pick it up.
