no sleep fridays


© Hee Jin Kang
“No Sleep” is a series of photographs of abandoned mattresses found around New York City, though mostly in Brooklyn. The beds are sometimes seedy and sometimes luminous, pathetic, monolithic and architectural, strange, out-of-place and totally banal. I’m interested in how these beds present all those things we do on them — sleep, dream, make love — and how by dumping them onto the streets of New York, we bring our very private lives out into the light.  More here.

stone barns

F. and I were lucky enough to celebrate our anniversary at Blue Hill Stone Barns last weekend (thank you EDOW!)

The 8-course “farmer’s feast” started with a glass of bubbly (“from chef Barber, for your anniversary”) and lasted four and a half hours.  Epic. Decadent. Exhausting. Amazing.

Bonus fun: on Sunday morning, we went back to Stone Barns to visit its Center for Food and Agriculture.  Said hello to the happy pigs, chickens, sheep and geese.

My advice when you go:  stay overnight and drive back to the city the next day real slow. Stone Barns is less than 45 minutes by car and you want to stretch out that feeling of being away for as long as possible.

I’ve updated my website so take a look and let me know what you think: www.heejinkang.com.

It was lovingly built using Indexhibit. It’s quick and simple, with horizontal scrolling and bigger images, and no flash. So you can view it on your iPhone. Hoorah.

short track

Ah, my favorite Winter Olympics sport: short track speed skating. I am Korean, after all.

Above, you can practically hear all of Korea screaming in disbelief (ai gu!) – just a few seconds shy of a 3-medal sweep in the Mens’ 1,500-meter, Korean skater #2 skids out, knocking himself and Korean #3 out of the race. Americans Apolo Anton Ohno and J. R. Celski win silver and bronze. Korean Lee Jung-su takes the gold. It was crazy watching it live.
