When I first read Gertrude Stein’s Useful Knowledge, it changed how I looked at words. It might have been one of the first times I thought about performance and what words mean when you say them out loud and don’t just read them on a page. Though perhaps a challenge to read too much of at any given time, her work serves as a constant inspiration for me. A reminder to embrace the absurd, look at the words we use in a different way, and (most of all) to always do what you want and make the art you want to make.
With all that build up, here’s just a little something. A small passing moment.
