Memories of Marfa: "I smell like a campfire"

File under: Found art (of sorts).

I found this note in Craig Phillips' studio last week. Craig is a "media concierge and analogue bon vivant" and, most importantly, host of MAKESH!T, a weekly art-making get-together in St. Paul. He tells me he kept a journal last time he visited Marfa (home base of the late, great Donald Judd), and eventually jotted some of his musings on hotel stationery. While it'd be great to see these compiled somewhere, it's also nice to find his notes-to-self amid the sedimentery layers of his well-used and rather magical studio.
