Trip the light fantastic and Norwegian concept artist Camille Norment

camilllenorment
I have a backlog of about 30 things to write about but why not toss off something quick and easy about Camille Norment?

And also, her piece at MOMA in NYC is called “trip light” which someone thought references the phrase “trip the light fantastic”.

Now I did think Procul Harem but it actually goes back to Milton and Shakespeare, who knew?

The sound sample uses Arvo Part, but she also digs, in a Norwegian via Maine way, Billie Holliday.

Meanwhile I am cutting to a Louis Menand piece in The New Yorker “Crooner in rights spat” about Rod Stewart being sued by someone who took his picture years ago,and he is using a similar picture to promote his Vegas production. Bonnie Schiffman. (10/20/14)

and1: it might take me ten minutes to dig this out of my phone, but I have a picture of a (name withheld) Norwegian maiden and her five yorkies, speaking of copyrights.
