I’ve been making edits on my 7k+ retelling of Fitcher’s Bird. It’s nice to look at it and be reminded that yes, I can write, and quite well at that, a fact of which I need periodic reminders. Snippet:

Three days after the hunt Fitcher gave youngest sister a pair of earrings fashioned from the claws of a fox. He had had them set in gold and hung below beads of amber. She wore them to a dance the next day and smiled as the matrons frowned and muttered, and the maidens watched her with wide, spooked eyes.

The claws proved sharp enough, still, to draw blood: that night when she took off her mantel they caught and tore, tracing a line of dark droplets on the skin below her ear. “I will have them blunted,” Fitcher said, catching her chin and tilting her head gently to the side to see the damage.

“Don’t,” youngest sister replied, and when he looked away from the blood to meet her eyes, she said, “What good is a claw that cannot injure?”

Fitcher’s smile was thin. He brushed his thumb across the wound and licked off the blood, and when she kissed him, the taste of it was metallic on her tongue.

Artist Henrique Oliveira Constructs a Cavernous Network of Repurposed Wood Tunnels at MAC USP

Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira (previously) recently completed work on his largest installation to date titled Transarquitetônica at Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade in São Paulo. As with much of his earlier sculptural and installation work the enormous piece is built from tapumes, a kind of temporary siding made from inexpensive wood that is commonly used to obscure construction sites. Oliveira uses the repurposed wood pieces as a skin nailed to an organic framework that looks intentionally like a large root system. Because the space provided by the museum was so immense, the artist expanded the installation into a fully immersive environment where viewers are welcome to enter the artwork and explore the cavernous interior. Transarquitetônica will be on view through the end of November this year, and you can watch the video above by Crane TV to hear Oliveira discuss its creation.

Just before nightfall I decided to take a walk outside. The sky was low, enveloping any object in its reach. It formed a dull, purplish haze - like nothing I’d seen before. The streets were empty. Not a single soul was out. It was oddly peaceful - imagining I was the only one left.

Going Back to the Roots with Henrique Oliveira’s Transarquitetônica

To see more photos and videos from Transarquitetônica, explore the MAC USP location page and browse the #henriqueoliveira hashtag.

Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira invites spectators to step inside his latest artwork and explore a giant wooden maze at São Paulo Museum MAC. His largest installation to date, Transarquitetônica is a 70 meter (229.66 ft) interactive sculpture made of tapumes, a plywood material traditionally used for cheap housing in Brazil. As the piece’s name suggests, Oliveira’s work speaks to the concept of time and evolution. Spectators discover spaces of contrast, as certain areas reference today’s modern architecture while sprawling branches symbolize man’s first dwelling.

incredibly beautiful.
