Fragmentary recollections of beginnings... Miro's Ladder of Escape: opaque clouds of colour shift enigmatically, lines moving in the foreground with muscular vigour. Brooklyn: walking down my street, summertime, big American cars pulse by me with big stereo sounds. Metal muscle. Travels in Hyperreality: Umberto Eco writes about the transforning effect of wearing jeans on one's consciousness. Skirt: the edge of things, it is what it does, a feisty/frilly word.
