Of Time and Space and Art

Robert Wilson’s CIVIL warS : Drawings, Models, and Documentation
“Selected Storyboard Drawings and Descriptive Texts for the CIVIL warS”
Act IIC Knee Play 6

Doors open very slowly to reveal two large cliffs.
Between cliffs, a small boat carrying a giraffe to China (14th C.) and Admiral Perry to Japan (19th C.)

So very much like Stein’s plays and operas. And yet so different because of the drawings. They supply orientation. For example the giraffe is rendered in profile. There is a crescent moon in the drawing. The descriptive text is partial. The drawing is partial.

And so for day 400
