Robert Whitman’s Passport at Dia Beacon

Robert Whitman's Passport at Dia just before the storm

Last weekend I checked out Robert Whitman’s performance Passport at Dia Beacon. I’m still working out what I think about this piece — the weather was less than stellar and prevented almost all note taking — but the flaming boat moving across the water was pretty stunning. A return trip is in order.

I have a few deadlines to attend to today, but in the meantime, a few pictures from the weekend. None include either the boat or the late appearance of a white horse. This was a reflective surface that proved too great for my point and shoot camera to surmount.
