Brancusi in New York City / “Awakening”

Brancusi’s well known sculptures are known by us mainly from reproductions of photo taken in perfect circumstances of light and background by very skilled photographers.
When visiting this temporary exhibit I realized that what I was seeing in that gallery was totally unique and unable to reproduce in other places. The sculptures seem to have been awaken from a deep sleep; they reflected the ceiling, the lighting fixtures, myself, each other in an inimitable way. They reacted to the environment in a way that Brancusi himself would not have guessed.
I was struck, again, by “the object staring back”.

CALL ME

The brain and the eye may have a contractual relationship in which the brain has agreed to believe what the eye sees, but in return the eye has agreed to look for what the brain wants
