This afternoon we wandered over to the Socrates Sculpture Park to check out one of the newest installations — a “ghostly full-scale latex replica of a demolished Lower Ninth Ward shotgun-style home” by sculptor Takashi Horisaki.
I don’t know if it struck me as ghostly, but it was certainly cool to explore. See my photos:
It was spooky, I’ll admit, yet there were dozens of people, families and their dogs, barking, laughing, having a good time. An odd juxtaposition, difficult to ponder the artwork. I need to go back during the week, on a cloudy morning, when it’s just me, and my favorite park.
I also enjoyed the gardens in the park, which are in full bloom. A Mothra landed on my leg.
Down the road from our house, I spotted this growing on someone’s shed, although this was an urban shed amid concrete and razor-wire. No grass for blocks, this pumpkin patch somehow sprang up in the back of a large group of row houses.
