Station Break

I would like to take a break from my Latvia coverage to show you a piece of art that was delivered while I was gone. I was looking at pictures from an art exhibit in one of the Giant Robot stores in California and saw this really nice piece. It was a bit pricey for something I couldn't touch and see but I kept going back to look at it. I finally decided to buy it but I had to wait for the art show to finish. In the meantime I read that the artist Dan-ah Kim had traveled around the world shooting a music video for one of my favorite bands, Death Cab for Cutie. When I opened the box I was not disappointed.


It is about 10x12, mixed medea work nicely matted and framed. I wrote to the artist and told her how I came to buy it and how nice it was. I told her that my initial attraction was the forest that reminded me of the birch forests in Latvia. She wrote me back to thank me and told me that she had see the lanterns in Tunisia when they were filming the video She also said she had always liked birch trees. The work is called "Followed You Here".
