Faye Dunaway is that kind of movie star that has a handsome formality stamped on her. She carries herself in monster proportions and when one hears tales about her it’s like hearing of an old legend like Beowolf. One choice epic about her is an incident concerning a young reporter from a British newspaper.

The Orchid excerpt  
by
9/1/14 Posted 9/1/14

On Tony’s first day, he walked into the restaurant unsure of what to expect. He was all in black, as had been stipulated. And looked appropriately cute. He was to train with Chuck. “I’ve been here for twelve years,” Chuck said right off. “Twelve years, Tommy.” “Tony.” “What? “My name’s Tony.” “Are you sure?” “...Yes.” “That’s funny. I was told your name was Tommy. Weird.” &l... [more]

The Orchid excerpt Part Two

9/1/14 Posted 9/1/14

Julia was making her way along the street, she had a way of walking that was quick but labored. It’s likely that it was her exasperation that translated her pace into a combination of frenzied and effortful. She was annoyed. She was annoyed about her present circumstances that forced her into trade from necessity. Any moment away from the theater was a useless moment. Any moment away from Pinter or Ibsen or Albee was not worth her time. She had things to do, she had hours to devote. Recognition wo... [more]

Decolonizing Architecture, Spatial Claims and Interventions  
by
9/1/14 Posted 9/1/14

Colonial Legacies In the nineteenth century, expeditions as well as excavations by European archaeologists (who felt entitled to be the guardians of its colony’s archaeological treasures) were conducted under the protection of British and French colonial presence in Iraq and Palestine. Geographical knowledge of Palestine and Iraq is historically and epistemologically built on a set of representations based on biblical narratives, orientalist imaginaries, utopian fantasies of Zionism and t...

From "Contemporary Art About Architecture: A Strange Utility," eds. Isabelle Loring Wallace and Nora Wendl (Ashgate Press, 2013) Vitruvian Figure(s) Nora Wendl We begin with a plan. Ichnos: “track, footstep;” graphia: “drawing.”A body in the (hidden) act of writing itself against the ground. Ichnographia: the etymology is misleading, because what the plan reveals is not the building’s footstep, the slow weight of its mass sinking into the ground, but instead the thi... [more]

MambaBy Alexander Aston When I was six my father died in an irrigation ditch from a mamba and I was sent to live with my grandfather. After the funeral he drove us out to his farm in his old fashioned Ford, fuel containers and luggage strapped to its body. I spent the drive with my cheek pressed to the cool of the window, letting the dust kicked up behind us fill my nostrils. My grandfather had lost his eye at some point and I had always found myself frightened by him. We sat in silence... [more]

IMPRESSIONISME Sky and wall are both blue. There are palm trees and orange trees, tables with sea shell green lamps lots of them, lots of books too. Poetry is writing into her notebook, another book on top of the world. Most women are naked. Most of the men discuss something or ride on horses, hold swords or are dead with a cat watching their grave.
