L53 (Thursday – posthumous)

With placement of the work complete, April takes on the lighting while I affix labels. After some slight shuffling of pieces to accommodate lighting limitations the space looks suspiciously like an exhibit.

I spend a couple of hours being my Type A self (cleaning mirrors, tweaking gestures, and scrubbing scuff marks off of plinths) and then call it a day.

April and Todd Janes (L53’s Executive Director) recommend checking out the AGA, in particular Cardiff and Miller’s sound installation The Murder of Crows. So I do.

It is brilliant. 98 speakers – each with their own soundtrack – arranged strategically in a massive room. I sit and listen for the entire 30 minute duration, eyes closed, the narrative moving around me. I highly recommend making the effort to experience this piece if it comes to a venue near you.
