The Original Farmers Market is having some holiday fun all of December that you should take the family to: be sure to check things out December 20 through December 24.
On the sixth day of Holiday, my LA friend gave to me… Knock Knock’s Hide & Eek.
The photo is of a blurry window with blinds covering most of it. You can tell it’s a window because it resembles a rounded specialty window, one in which the body is covered in blinds while the odd-shaped top is open to spill light. The image suggests suffocation and blindness and even a fantastic looking glass, one that could reveal an entire world if it were in focus. It’s intangibility allows the viewer to project so much onto it, imagining who is looking at this window and where it is and what is behind it.
“I took this in my room after school. I was bored,” the photographer, Edwin Lopez, explains of his photo Brighter Dayz. “I turned my camera on and I was distracted and what caught my eye was that the inside of the room came out dark and the window and beyond came out normal with light.”
“I took a whole mess of pictures,” he says. “I chose this one because it came out abnormal.”
January 25 and January 26 is Rachel Rosenthahl’s seasonal show Instant Fairy Tales. It’s a family friendly show that seems pretty rad. Check it out!
Don’t think it’s possible to see a reindeer in LA? Wrong: you can—go to the LA Zoo! Starting today and on view through January 2, there will be *reindeers* at the zoo. There will also be little holiday fairs on Saturdays and Sundays, starting November 30 and ending December 22.
