Lynda Benglis: I think the Internet is a waste of time.
Walter Mosley: Honestly. It can be really, really boring.
Benglis: The museums can’t control it. It’s infinite.
Mosley: But indeed, even that may not be true.
Benglis: Why not?
Mosley: Inside the sphere of wealth or poverty or politics or being a policeman, you know, whatever.
Benglis: They weren’t asking questions anymore and often people were just working too logically: we do this, we do that, we react this way and we get a sculpture.
Mosley: Like, tweeting was great in the Arab Spring.
Benglis: Latex and rubber masks, wax effigies and wax in ritual. It’s an exchange of energy.
Mosley: I can’t even keep a beat.
Benglis: It was a linear organic statement, one of curved planes.
Mosley: And then another line butted up to that, and another, and another, all the way down to the bottom.
Benglis: Everybody has his or her own handwriting but how do you develop it in a way that’s communicating?
Mosley: The truth is, you just befriend people and you hang out, you talk together, maybe you get drunk together, you talk about girls, whatever you’re talking about.
Benglis: They’ve all been used as a surface for human skin.
