Kurt

(2008-2013)

I met Kurt in his native Nebraska in 2008. Whenever and wherever we get the chance to reunite, ideas and events have a tendency to occur. The project is a mere attempt at capturing some of that characteristic je ne sais quoi.

Exquisite corpse in Kurt’s notebook, lying on a park bench

Manhattan, New York City, New York, February 18, 2011 Kurt, leaning over the window sill in the Pod Hotel’s room 308, fishing for the “Crunch 2010” notebook lying on the canopy underneath, armed with a telephone cable, rope, bar of soap, tie-wrap and hook-shaped key ring. The attempt proved successful.

The so-called “Shitty Frog” - original color photograph by Cheryl Ratliff. The picture was stashed in the hotel room’s tissue box, underneath a few sheets. The e-mail address written on the back of the photograph was found in Yoga flyers contained in the “Crunch 2010” notebook. Hopefully, a very unlikely chain of events could thus ensue.
