Taken with the Pop 9, nine lens lomo camera.

The relaxing I wanted to do this weekend, mentioned in the previous blog entry, is really coming along nicely…

I took myself out for a “me lunch date” this afternoon and wandered around fourth avenue going into shops I hadn’t previously visited. I skimmed quite a few clothing stores and spent a surprising amount of time in the Kitchen Corner Superstore (1955 West 4th Avenue). I’ve walked past countless time without ever going in, until today. It reminded me of the “Ikea experience” with it’s shelves and aisles chock-a-block full of household items, some useful and some not, all filling me with the desire to buy more, more, MORE!!!! I managed to stick to surveying the shopping landscape and walked out of there only with what I needed.

I think there must be the same amount of stuff packed into this place as Ikea, but with much less square footage. Don’t miss the basement if you go. I felt like I was the last person on earth down there, just me all that wicker.

    I was going to mock the concept of the Pop 9, but there’s some apophenic pattern-grasping joy to be found in picking out the small differences between the frames.

    It puts one to mind of Tuftean small multiples, but as an art form instead of an infographic.

    I guess I should be referencing Warhol instead of Tufte:

    Repetition really does give something to an image, doesn’t it? This is lovely. I’m glad you’re having a good weekend. ๐Ÿ™‚
