Art of Time, Cadmium Red

I was walking down the street  When I thought I heard this voice say

red on it's way to black.  John Berger, via Art of Time, April 12, 2014

“Say, ain’t we walking down the same street together on the very same day?”

Blue. Also Berger and John Christie who exchanged letters about colour which were read as part of AOT’s “Cadmium”

“Hey, Senorita, that’s astute”, I said.  “Why don’t we get together and call ourselves an institute?”

Many marvelous synchronized happenings and conversations these past two days.  The world is rich with resonance.

Nothing institutional about this weekend, whatsoever.  I just like that lyric, and Aruna referred to it when we were eating tapas on Ossington together..
