Sunday I went to the MacDowell Colony Medal Day that honored Kiki Smith.

Kiki Smith's acceptance speech was short and sweet. She mentioned having to sleep in many different beds all over the country and how she was thinking about how maybe we are a utopic culture of always traveling around. She put it better than that. I was thinking this is a nice way of looking at it. This made me think of my friend and artist Molly Roth and her idea that we are a culture full of homesickness. Both of these ideas are interesting ways of looking at us and our mobility.
