When I look at your work, I see that sense of continuous transformation. There is a place-to-place, station-to-station quality to it, where the viewer is taken into landscapes of temporal experiences. Doug Aitken, speaking of Peirre Huygue’s work in 2004. Nine years later Doug made Station to Station.

When President Obama leaves office three years from now, the major policy story of his second term — barring some kind of unforeseen invasion — is likely to be climate change.

Oh let’s most certainly hope so. Add immigration reform to the list, please.

VATICAN–A recent interview with the Papal Alomner Archbishop Konrad Krajewski this week confirmed recent speculations that Pope Francis joins him on his nightly trips into Rome to give alms to the poor. An inside source at the Vatican told EOTT that “Swiss guards confirmed that the pope has ventured out at night dressed as Batman to meet with homeless men and women, and to fight crime.” “The first time I told him I was going out into the city in the evening, there was the risk that he would want to come with me,” Krajewski said in an interview this morning. “And when I did tell him, he merely smiled and ran away to get ready.” Krajewski went on to say that just moments after his discussion with Francis, that he witnessed the Holy Father’s Pope Mobile, “painted all black,” racing out of St. Peter’s Square with flames coming out of the back end.

I have the pope I always wanted, but was never Roman Catholic enough to ask for.
