ANDREY REMNEV

The process of creation for me is first of all a dialogue with myself. Search of a perfect artistic shape, its technical realisation is in fact a process of self-knowledge and self-development.

Exquisite!

“He tried to write One Hundred Years early on. At the beginning he called it his mamotreto [bulky notebook]. It was not spoken of; he could not write it. He knew the novel needed a writer with more experience, so he waited until the day he became the writer capable of writing One Hundred Years. It has to do with command of technique. You need a great deal of technique to write a novel like that. He knows the tale; he has the characters and storyline; but he couldn’t write it. You have a novel that has to be typewritten, but you can’t type, so you have to wait until you learn to type it up; the novel is there, waiting.”
Read part three of Silvana Paternostro’s oral biography of Gabriel García Márquez.

Did you know that the Smart Car is in MoMA’s collection? In honor of Earth Day, learn how it helps the planet. 

[Smart Car. “Smart & Pulse” Coupé. 1998.]

It’s adorable and eco-friendly. Wonder if the guards drive it around the museum after hours.

Quote

"I think I’m two people—the researcher and the writer. The researcher spends quite a lot of time going abroad, working in libraries, seeing letters. I sometimes turn to the writer, who is doing nothing at that point—who is sleeping!—and I say, Do you want this bit about Shaw bicycling? And the writer doesn’t know. He says, You’re the researcher, you decide. So the researcher thinks, Well, that’s really not important. And the researcher is always longing to be writing, getting on with the actual problem we created. Then the writer takes over, shuts the door to the world, and kicks back on this researcher who was traveling the world, meeting people, making discoveries, and he says, Why the hell is there no documentation here about Shaw and the bicycle? This part of Shaw’s life is exactly about how things were happening more quickly, whereas before he was on foot. That’s what I find so funny."
