She:     I felt as if I were inside a mirror, between the glass and the reflective film.
Her:      All those half-circles and triangles, pieces and shelves.
She:     And the twinned sculptures…
Her:      Sentinels, beasts.
She:     The titles made me meander around a bit...
Her:      And what does Abecedarian me--
She:     --Pronounced A-B-C + darian, it’s a list or a poem or a manual in alphabetical order. 
Her:      The rudimentary (rude!), elementary (school!), the novice (or novitiate!).
She:     All that white made me think about archeology…
Her:      --I wanted to grab that ass as he crawled around on his knees, un-stacking those shapes! 
She:     Reminded me of the Japanese Buddhist temple that’s always being built up or taken down. 
Her:      Eyes ! vulvas ! breasts ! behinds ! mountains ! clouds ! waves ! sno-cones ! sailboats ! aerial views ! constellations ! 
She:     What unusual installation tactics…
Her:      Those shelves were really stacked.
She:     Glad we saw it.
Her:      I’ll post a picture.
