“But I digress, which is all I’ve ever done.” – Rebecca Solnit

The title of this work is based on a comment made by writer Rebecca Solnit during a conversation with artist Carrie Schneider. On January 17, 2016, I attended their talk at the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, Florida. The weather was pleasantly chilly that day which made me more alert. I took notes in a small pink notebook with a black Le Pen. As always, my writing was tiny, barely legible, and resembled black threads. This installation is influenced by elements of my previous works and an Artascope. The Artascope is a kaleidoscope, from the 1920’s, which through a light touch of its base, in a basic circular rhythm, gives form to fragments.
