All Your Waking Hours

(image from John Baldessari’s app, In Still Life)

“If you are putting all your waking hours into doing art every day.. you are getting pretty good at having a kind of rarefied taste. So, metaphorically, you are eating some two-hundred-year-old gorgonzola cheese while the rest of the world is eating mild cheddar. Sometimes it’s just nice to escape your own well-developed taste and see what happens if you leave things to chance. It’s a Cage-ian, Duchampian idea, but it’s a very good one.”
