Best of February 2020

This was an eventful month for me. I said farewell to the bay and moved to Brooklyn. Here are a few memorable things I came across in the past month.

The Lot Radio is an independent online radio station live streaming 24/7 from a reclaimed shipping container on an empty lot in NYC.

Dreaming with Friends is a compilation of tracks produced by female artists from China. I stumbled upon this browsing Resident Advisor and liked what I heard. I am looking forward to checking out some of the featured artists’ work.

Seeing is the Name of Forgetting What One Sees is a book that was mentioned by Rob Bell in an episode of You Made it Weird. For some reason, I felt called to pick it up at the library. I only got about halfway through because I had to leave for Brooklyn, but what I read really made me look at art in a different way. It inspired a mantra that I’ve been asking myself this month– “What am I not seeing?”

Lonesome Shores (1938) by Lyonel Feininger is a painting that I got to see at SF MOMA during my final few days over there. I liked the technique of short, straight lines scraped along the canvas to form the familiar shapes. I thought his depiction of clouds was cool (or, at least I think they are clouds).

Piece of Clay by Marvin Gaye is a song that hit me in the soul one morning when I heard it playing in a cafe after a tumultuous night.

That is all for now. See ya next month.
