Just look at it!

Love this little post from kottke.org. It applies to nearly all art I love, though it’s actually about, uh, some water maps. Like the one above. What’s under water is up above. I sound confused. (Maybe what they’ve been saying about me is true.)

Take this quote and insert name of favorite painting to replace the link in the middle:

There’s not much to say about¬†this gorgeous, wooden, laser-cut bathymetric chart of various bodies of water¬†except that just look at it!

I altered two words in that quote in a way that doesn’t matter. Trust me on that. If only all art criticism could be reduced to the sentence I’ve offered instructions in how to make, up above. Under my first paragraph . . . oh well.
