    At different times of the day

    Something so simple. Getting present to the changes in the light. I wonder… Maybe before all our smart devices, the Internet, TV; before all of that, at the end of the 19th century people still weren’t present to the changes. We just think now that “oh back in the day”. But really, back in the day they had their new distractions already distracting them.

    So much so, that an artist could disrupt the world of art by painting the light. Not the shadows. And the changes of the light in a city. In something that thousands of people walk past throughout the day.

    We like to believe that we’re distracted by our devices and the news cycle and whatever other excuse we have. But maybe, maybe we’re distracted because we’re human. And that’s never changed.

    Leave it to the artists to show us how distracted we are and point things out.
