So much for entropy. Robert Andrade’s landscape intervention, Ruined State(s) which was supposed to crack and become ruins over the past year, is looking as good as ever. Yesterday’s inspection revealed it to be as sturdy as the day it was made. Okay, well maybe not quite; there are a few cracks on the surface of one of the slabs. Station923’s resident kitty Matilda has taken to basking in the afternoon sun down by the sculpture, and clearly enjoys its smooth coolness. Even though Robert intended for the piece not to last when he installed it one year ago this month, I’ll admit I’ve grown quite fond of it and won’t mind if it stays in tact for another 10 or 15 years.
