sean m. johnson’s 'family portrait,' 2008, couch and scotch tape

when i see this, i see the brooklyn bridge (especially joseph stella’s mightily straining thing). the next thought seems obvious: that family relationships are feats of engineering involving barely sufficient materials. i don’t mind that it’s obvious. i like it, and it’s true, and i imagine being in that room with it, you can feel the whole thing about to fall.
