Frame of Mind: John Schabel

John Schabel’s Passenger #2 is one of my favorite pieces of photography. This photo has a mysterious and fleeting feeling to it. If I were fortunate enough to own this piece, in my mind this is what I’d buy to accompany it: 1. A dresser that appears as if its levitating and taking flight despite it’s spiny limbs. 2. Two fingers to let the world know how I feel in my best Pam James’ voice (from the 90s hit show Martin). 3. If I’m flying, then I’m going across the pond, er, ocean. A ocean-inspired blue-green box to store all of my stuff that I prefer my guests not see. I’d actually need more than several of these to stack as I do have a lot of stuff I wish to hide. 4. A black and white tote to store my magazines and to celebrate my favorite form of photography (if this tote were made out of film, it’d earn even more cool points) dah well, moving on to 5.  Janus Wing Chair by Edward Wormley. I believe it’s very much first class. Need to ask why? Please exit stage left. 6. A Moroccan dessert plate. The next destination that I’m putting on my vision board (you know how we’re all about “putting it into the universe” and everything) 7. Jacques Adnet desk lamp because it’s like a spotlight and a hug all rolled up in one or maybe a mini-overhead light and a complimentary blankie in a plastic bag rolled up in one and, 8. a wall planter with a geometric shape because geometric shapes add edge to any room, and the passenger in seat number two is giving me edge with her eyes. That’s my frame of mind, what’s yours?
