Did y’all know that Mike Kelley
committed suicide died last month?
My heart hurts; I loved his work so. <–When I guest lecture for The Husband’s Humanities classes, I always include a few pieces by Mike Kelley because his work is so fun and accessible and really makes you think at the same time.
I know that it’s silly for me to be all grieve-y about Kelley’s death, but it’s like when Baudrillard died: my little heart just stopped. Sometimes, for me, those by whom I’m influenced or with whom I’ve developed a relation to their work—it’s like losing Family: the Family of the Mind and the Interior Space.
I’m going to go be sad in my corner for awhile.
