Tuesday, July 15, 2014, 4am – Greenpoint, Brooklyn -> JFK airport
Flight Bogota, Colombia to São Paulo, Brasil
Now I have the incredible opportunity to do something new, to push myself and come up with my own unfettered creative routine. Movement will be an essential part of this – a wonderful way to start each day! (Inspiration: Capoeria morning ritual video.)
I’m envisioning time each day for collecting information (research, reading, walking around observing and documenting). Dialogue exercises with Pilar.
I’d also like to make some autonomous works:
-works on paper
This is the perfect opportunity to get myself organized and create a work flow that really works for me.
We arrive in São Paulo just before midnight and navigate our way to the hotel for a rest before the flight to Belo Horizonte, the next day. It’s a nice place, but we’re so tired by this point we would happily sleep anywhere that’s not an airplane seat.
Wednesday, July 16, 2014 – São Paulo, Brasil
Belo Horizonte, Brasil
The earth is almost red in parts.
We arrive into downtown Belo Horizonte and are warmly greeted by Chica (Francisca Caporali) and Daniella Domingues from JA.CA., who walk us over to the apartment to drop off our bags and then over to the studio to have a look.
