Nash Glynn with Ann C. Collins
In January of this year, Nash Glynn fell in love with a loft in an old warehouse building near the Seaport. She had been living and working in Brooklyn for years, in an industrial corner of Greenpoint, but as the pandemic lifted, she was looking for a change. The space, filled with sunlight and the salty breezes that blow inland from New York Harbor, gave her exactly that.

Thomas Ruff with Will Fenstermaker
Aldous Huxley wrote eloquently about what is certainly a universal desire to transcend ordinary human experienceand which is also the compulsion driving both religious mysticism and im-age-making. In The Doors of Perception, first published in 1954, he relays his own experience with mescaline, the hallucinogenic alkaloid produced by peyote. Known as the book that launched a thousand trips, The Doors of Perception became a seminal text among Timothy Leary and the American hippies. Thomas Ruffs new d.o.pe. series is named after Huxleys book, and the images of fractals folding back on themselves, tessellating into infinity, do superficially resemble the visual hallucinations that Huxley describes as well as the psychedelic art that became a mainstay of 1960s counterculture.
