a little date to see pipilotti rist!

love-taza-lhhf7430100

back in 2008, i discovered pipilotti rist through an exhibition she was doing at the MoMA and i fell in love with her work called ever is over all. there is something about it that almost put me in a trance, where i could literally spend an hour just watching the same 3 minute clip in a loop, seeing and discovering new things each time i watched it, and piecing together a different story as well. also, that music (with the clashing of the woman’s flower against the car windows!!!!). it just stuck with me and even all these years later, i think about it. i went back to the MoMA so many times while that exhibition was running, and you can see my blog posts on it here.

she currently has a big presentation happening at the new museum downtown called pixel forest and it is insane. when i heard it had opened, i sent josh a text like, “WE HAVE TO GO RIGHT NOW!!!!!!” also, such a sweet surprise to see that my favorite piece, her ever is over all, is part of the presentation. the exhibit takes up 3 entire floors, and it actually shares works from her entire career with pieces dating back to the 80’s. it’s so fascinating to see it evolve.  she does a lot of incredible things with videos and music and sounds, i’m excited to go back. we’re going to take the kids next time, i want to share it with them.

    This looks amazing. And you do nothing to curb my impulse shopping – ggrrr! That sweater <3

  5. Harriet

    I love that 80s-style purple sweater!

    I think there is an unwritten rule that if you are old enough (me, not you) to have worn a style the first time around, you are too old to wear it now. Otherwise I’d order it right this minute!

    This sounds like a dream date night in my book! I’m also super obsessed with your air in these pictures!

    who makes the exact shoes you are wearing?
    they look like shoes by Ivanka Trump. it looks just like her “kamon strappy pump”?

      i bought them at DSW but i was in the store. the brand is actually Aldo but i couldn’t find them or a similar replica online besides the rebecca minkoff ones i linked. did you find one more similar?

    Wow, beautiful pictures! Every time I read your blog I wish I lived in NYC. From the architecture to the food to all of the cool things going on around the city, it must just be an awesome place to live :)

    I saw Eleanor trying these shoes on in your insta video a few weeks ago and fell in love! I was looking everywhere I could think of for them and found a couple options, but none went up to size 11 (the curse of big feet!) Finally I found them! http://www.aldoshoes.com/us/en_US///Women/Shoes/Low-Mid-Heels/Adalide/p/47875920-98
    I just ordered them a couple days ago and scored them for $35 with their sale! They should get here next week and I just wish they would get here before thanksgiving!

    Wow this is SO cool! Thanks for sharing, Naomi & Josh!
