“Come; let us squeeze hands all round; nay, let us all squeeze ourselves into each other; let us squeeze ourselves universally into the very milk and sperm of kindness.” Herman Melville, Moby-Dick
A: You hear it, and it’s that very specific sound…of flesh, that makes me…[laughs] that squishy sound.
B: I’m trying to build these devices, going forward with these videos, for how to conduct an action precisely, like that.
A: The fact that it’s fluid, and rhythmic, is what makes it for me. I see that a little with you two guys. But it’s like this is a path.
B: When I was growing up, we used to get up every morning and feed a lot of horses, and it got to be more and more, to the point where we were feeding fifty horses a day. And I’d go down there with my brother and two other people, just going through these routines, taking care of them. There’s a lot of that in here too.
A: What camera did you shoot that with?
Steven and Joanna are pleased to present five lights, two shelves, several photographs, a collaborative book, and some lard for your consideration.
