Artist Jeanne Claude, collaborator and wife of Christo, passed away yesterday.
She said that their work, which was always meant to be temporary, expressed, "the quality of love and tenderness that we human beings have for what does not last." which seems a pretty appropriate thing to say.

On the other hand I think it might be totally inappropriate to post this right now, but I'm doing it anyway because I thought it was the funniest thing I'd ever seen when I first saw it a month or so before my MFA thesis show, and I still do. It should be required viewing for all art school students.

Lovely obituary for Jeanne Claude here.
