Shawn and I by some great wallpaper at the Walker Art Center.
My friend Shawn and I went to the Walker Art Center for an after hours party they had on Valentine’s Day. They had a preview of their new art exhibit featuring the artist Jim Hodges called “Give More Than You Take.” The exhibit had many pieces that somehow required the viewer to interact with them. The viewer became part of the art itself.
There was a hands on activity called Memento that had participants write a message about love or loss on a card which they decorated themselves. They then attached their card to a wall with other cards using string and nails.
Mine is one that says, “Love yourself first.” Shawn’s is the one below mine. It doesn’t have any words on it because he wanted to break the rules that night and be a renegade.
"The concept of life after death is a superstition designed to keep people happy with their limited existence in the present. The only life is the one we have now which is why we must seize it and live while we have the chance."
