The Belly of the Beast


It's an image I've been using a lot recently: Jonah and the Whale, without the possibility of leaving—realizing in fact that you are part of the Whale's stomach lining...

So along comes Anish Kapoor and creates Leviathan, which appears to be an incarnation of this idea about hyperobjects. Now at the Grand Palais, Paris. HT Lin Mu.

Uncanny! Because the Inuit jacket I've been looking at in the museum is a top-notch whale gut lined number. Not only fetching, it has all the marks of a Quality object that would rival any North Face product--raindrop for raindrop.
