there is nothing wrong in this whole wide world

Noodling around the internet today; I landed at Magpie & Cake where I saw this photograph of artist Chris Cobb’s installation, There is Nothing Wrong in this Whole Wide World, at Adobe Books in San Francisco.

Chris Cobb installation

Reading the quote from an interview with Cox I found this:

In some Native American cultures, if you make something, you have to then sleep with it next to you overnight, so that the object is transformed through your dreaming.

A little synchronistic encouragement from the universe after my last post.

I love objects organized by color beyond any reasonable explanation. I feel a deep sense of satisfaction and pleasure similar to when I color matched my mother’s sewing supplies as a child.

Something I still do with my own.

    There is something so seductive about color and arranging it. Somehow it reminds us that its placement was conscious and not random, and we remember to look for beauty around us.

    Those books remind me of a photos I saw recently on Apartment Therapy- linked on my name.
