O I see now, flashing, that this America is only you and me,
Its power, weapons, testimony, are you and me,
Its crimes, lies, thefts, defections, slavery, are you and me,
Its Congress is you and me—the officers, capitols, armies, ships, are you and me,
Its endless gestations of new States are you and me,
The war—that war so bloody and grim—the war I will henceforth forget—was you and me,
Natural and artificial are you and me,
Freedom, language, poems, employments, are you and me,
Past, present, future, are you and me.
Walt Whitman; As I Sat Alone by Blue Ontario’s Shores

Nude Reading by Roy Lichtenstein, 1994, 12 color relief print.
From the portfolio “Readers & Readings” in our Fall 2003 issue, Jeanette Winterson writes of the print, “Roy Lichtenstein’s Nude Reading is not locked in time, because she is freed by art. She is naked. She is in her own room. She is in her own time. She is her own time. It’s quite normal for her to read a book that hasn’t been written yet.”

Sydney Laneways

Cumulus recently teamed up with Futago to submit a proposal for Sydney’s Laneway Art and City Spaces.  To follow is an extract from our submission.

Wandering George street, just heading from A to B, a small piece of lush green ground catches the eye. As though some movement of the ground underneath had cleaved two steep-sided buildings apart, Abercrombie Lane is the lush fissure that remains.  In the tearing apart, it is almost as though a piece of original ground is revealed - a tiny sliver of riverbank perhaps - heading to a stream that is no more.

This public artwork will reclad the ground of a narrow, sloping lane off George Street with artificial turf. The turf will undulate as it touches the buildings on either side, as if it might represent the movement of water, draining down the river bank. Originally a source of fresh water for Sydney, the Tank Stream is an invisible key to the city’s settlement. Abercrombie Lane leads down to Tank Stream Way, which is part of the line of the watercourse that Sydney was built around.  While the stream itself is hidden in tunnels under the pavements and buildings, the slope of Abercrombie Lane is a place where it is still possible to read the original topography of the riverbank.
