This group has been active for a long time and has already made some remarkable assertions which render life simpler from the practical point of view. For example, I move a pot of green color five centimeters to the right, I push in the thumbtack beside the comb and if Mr. A (another adherent like me) at this moment puts his volume about bee-keeping beside a pattern for cutting out vests, I am sure to meet on the sidewalk of the avenida Madero a woman who intrigues me and whose origin and address I never could have known...

Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison: Another silent post

A bizarre and surreal past/ future world. A husband and wife team using theater, collage, photography, and whatever else comes in handy to create their images.

Thanks to Pequenos Nadas on Imeem for the playlist.
