Untitled (Perfect Lovers) 1991. Clocks, paint on wall.
Untitled (Perfect Lovers) consists of two clocks, which start in synchronisation, and slowly, inevitably fall out of time due to the failure of the batteries and the nature of the mechanism. In a moving comment on his personal experiences, the piece refers to Gonzalez-Torres’ HIV positive partner Ross Laycock, and his slow decline and inevitable death due to AIDS. The clocks act as two mechanical heartbeats; representative of two lives destined to fall out of sync, and holds a poignant poetry about personal loss and the temporal nature of life.
“Don’t be afraid of the clocks, they are our time, time has been so generous to us…We conquered fate by meeting at a certain time in a certain space…we are synchronized, now forever. I love you.”
this is one of my favorite works ever

Also nobody let me go on aquabid, not til I have a cycled tank. My room feels super empty now that Gally isn’t here, and I really want some
onething to wake up to and to have a responsibility for, but in that sense, my responsibility is to have a home ready for the new wiggle when he or she gets here. So no new fishy yet. Also I can’t afford an aquabid fish right now anyways but hey i’ve become addicted
Figured Phish Food ice cream was the most appropriate way to eat my sorrow.
Then my dad called me and said if I couldn’t find anyone to go to the art event with me, he’d go after he got off work. My dad is rad guys.
