This week on Cargo

CN/031 — Feb 20 2018

Gelatinous pipes pumping all manner of liquid

Staff Pick: The subject matter of the work on Peter Welz’s site is Modernism — the 20th Century movement often described with words like “brutal” or “cold” or “inhuman”. But after clicking around, our view of Modernism is forever altered. Welz, through quiet and plain presentation, reveals works by Mies van der Rohe, Adalberto Libera, Michelangelo Antonioni, to be sensual and primordial — what could be more poignantly human than a stone wall baking in the sun resisting wind with an unconcerned horizon in the distance?

Choices incidental, uncalculated and correct

What a weird, soft machine — this thing is — these sapiens — who look out from watery orbs — thinking who knows what — full of gelatinous pipes pumping all manner of liquid, with stringy neurons activating crazy pattern recognitions, and the whole wondrous grizzle wrapped around woody sticks —held together by intergalactic forces … bizarre … sapiens.
